Is this a reasonable price? Reason I ask is because they say it is a very hot bike this year...thanks for any quick responses.

MSRP on a 2012 DR650 is only $6000. I can't imagine $900 in taxes and fees.

Just to give you an idea: When I bought my new 2009 in 2010 the MSRP was only $5600. I got it for $5000 plus $300 in taxes and fees for a total of $5300.

Edit: just searched for the west coast. Simi Valley Cycles has the 2012 DR listed at MSRP $5999 and a 2011 DR for $5300 (and in white!). I would tell them to shove it at $6900!

Since it is a 2012 and the unpopular Gray color maybe you can use that as leverage. Mine is the white one which is the most popular color so they were pretty damn firm. But I got em down a bit.

It's not 'unpopular' it's 'theft deterant' from what I read on this forum. I actually like it but I'm weird. Yes white is the best.... Rich

I just bought a 2011 for $5800 out the door in southern Alabama. The dealer there acted like that bike was not a hot seller. He said he had to call his other shop across the bay, have it trucked over and his shop would "uncrate it". I bought it sight unseen and so far I'm very happy with it. I think I've paid the light bill at Procycle for the next year already considering the number of farkles I've ordered. Just curious to know if there are any changes on the 2012 models?

I bought a 2012 OTD for $6587.87 in Memphis in April 2012.

Hey Andy. Did you get it at Hall's?

I'm only about an hour and a half north of you. We should get together and ride. I have the psychodelic '98 model repslendent if purple and yellow.

Buy any DR you want as long as its mechanically sound. Cost to change color:

IMS tank= $260
rear fender= $65 (Oneida Suzuki)
front fender= $30
Krylon Fusion paint for fairing=$5

color change= $360 plus shipping

Or you could just order a complete set of plastics in black, white, yellow or blue (blue comes with white side panels) from Procycle for $350.

Or (and I would never endorse this idea because it would be wrong) you could go to WalMart and get some spray paint and some beer and do the whole thing for $20.


Oh, my bad. That would be if you had a KLR, not a DR...........

Done Deal

Well, I'm officially picking up the DR! Got 'em down to just around 6800 OTD. Looks like this is "average" for the 2012's after looking around. I actually like the grey color too. Next question...

I know this has been posted a thousand times (and yes I have searched and am constantly doing so) but my question is this. If YOU had 1,800 dollars to spend on mods/farkles what would you buy? The bike will be set up for long distance touring with 60/40 road/dirt. This budget is to include bigger tank, rack/bags, and any other comfort/touring/etc. items. Also, if you could look back and do it all again for those who have bought/sold items over the years your experience and wisdom is greatly appreciated! (Trying to stray from the same process haha).

The grey looks awesome in the flesh. Blended with black farkles.......

Not a bad deal but they don't include the tank
