Paid $12,800 out the door, good deal for the spring - I ordered one, so the dealer didn't have to put it on his shop financing, sometimes you can both benefit. I know the guys, didn't mind putting down a deposit to get a deal. I also needed a new quad, so we worked a combo deal.
I usually wait until Christmas and act a bit like a vulture, choosing from what's left (you can usually get what you want if you search), but this time I was pretty sure that I wanted a specific model and for this summer. If there are any around this fall you can probably do as well or better. When I bought my 2003 FZ1 at Christmas of that year, it was almost $4,000 off list...some dealers just want old stock gone.
