am seriously lookin at a new s4r as the next bike. Now I know here in so cal they are retaied at $13495.

My dealer quoted me roughly $14,200 out the door.
To me that doesnt seem like that great a deal
was wonderin what others in the US have paid for their S4R?

Anyone seen any good deals on "new" Senna S4?

thanks matt

i used to sell motorcycles between my years in college. you've gotta remember that sales people are like sharks but where sharks can smell blood, sales people smell "lust"...
if you walk in there reaking of lust for this bike, you're not getting a deal. if you go in with interest (so the guy know's you're serious about making a purchase), but aren't foaming at the mouth, you can haggle with them.

if the dealer starts tooting about how this is the latest/greatest monster, limited production, blah blah blah... just say "but i can get a great deal on a leftover monster s4 (non-R)". mention the apr!ll!a 2-oh-no and how great a bargain it is... dare i say it? even mention the yamahahaha FZ1!! finally, mention that everybody and their sister knows ducati's sales #'s aren't what they should be and that selling a bike for a little less than list is better than not selling it at all!!!

no, you won't walk out with a $10k S4R, but you should be able to shave a little (maybe a grand) off the price. see if you can squeeze a free service or something out of them too. and good luck!!!!

just a perspective from a bit south of you guys - Australia.
I have just ordered a MS4R and comes in at around $14100 of your dollars. Delivery at the moment is about a month.

There has only been one MS4R shipped to Australia without a dealer order - a grey one due into Sydney tommorrow. With
demand like that it is unlikely to be in the bargain box for a long time.

We had your George W visiting today - he came down for a barbeque with our Prime Minister. We are sending him back tonight - enjoy.

I am looking at an s4r also and I don't mean to hijack the thread but did anyone cross shop the Brutale when looking at the monster? I saw them both together at a local dealer and the Brutale was stunning. Not sure if I want an I-4.

I am sure my dealer would deal on any Ducati. Sales are down over 30% and he has mentioned at least a grand off. I'm in CT.
