That's the MSRP of a '12 Burg 400 ABS. Not a bad price since it is OTD (taxes, prep, doc fee, etc included). I'm sure someone will come along and say they got their brand new one for $5800 or...

I'd put my money down on one if I could get a DCT around here. I kind of have to wait on the 2013 since the 2012 can no longer be ordered.
