Buying a new dirtbike

I want to buy a new dirtbike, never done it before and I was wondering does it matter how much you put down ? Never bought any kind of vehicle new so just would like to know what goes on and what I need to know.

Looking at getting a 2015 beta 300rr

If you have nothing to put down they will most likely still finance you. Never bought any kind of vehicle new so just would like to know what goes on and what I need to know.

Good dealerships will treat it much like a car deal and you guys can haggle over the price. Some won't come down on the price, but will throw in a helmet, or boots. Others will stonewall and not come down on the price or offer a helmet or boots (I refuse to buy from these).

Because you are looking for a bike sold from limited dealerships I suspect you may get stonewalled. Good luck and have fun on that bike.

Talk to Frank Kergil in Bellevue (Frank's Motorbikes)
cell# four two five - 260 - 9002

He has a 300RR in stock. As for BYOB I'm sure he'll work with you on however you want to configure the bike. I've bought a couple of bikes from Frank.

Good luck! Dorian

Last year he sold the bike I put money down on and never refunded me. Whenever I would call he wouldn't answer.

Ah, and whats that tell ya.

Before you buy check on parts. I have seen dealers that would take parts off a new bike to keep you riding [and happy] and a few that acted like they were doing you a favor just being there. good luck
