A local dealer here in St. Louis is running a radio ad that includes a new 2012 zero mile 950 for $6,500

Welcome to the forum.

Does the bike your looking at have any add ons that would warrant the price? Miescha has a point; search a bit further and you may find that rare pearl for less money than that one.

Keep us in the loop of what you have found.

Ride safe and keep it shiny side up.

I wasn't suggesting shipping (although a SW flight is about $100 and then a ride home . . . .priceless :-)

I was suggesting that maybe you could find a dealer offering an equally good price. Or find a dealer with a 2012 left over and show them the price "back home" in St. Louis. Of course they'll say "fly your arse to STL if you want that deal" but they might also make a counter-offer that's close . . .

howdy. good decision to haggle. if they have a brand new 2011, it means it's been sitting for quite a while and there is not much demand for it or it would have been sold already. works well in your favor. though you are interested in buying in the spring when demand for motorcycles are at their highest

Bevo I agree, but everything I have seen I think it's still a good deal.
