Will prices on the '14 Super Tenere go up after January 1st?

I understand that there are some pretty good dealer incentives on the '13 and '14 Super Tenere that expire on 12/27.

I am getting a bonus in March and was planning on buying a standard '14 S10 in early April. As the laws of supply and demand go, will the Spring the worst time of the year to buy this bike? I'll end up financing about half of the cost of the bike for probably 3 years (with the other half cash down at the time of purchase).

Anyone care to guess if I would be better off buying now before the $1500 dealer incentives expire on 12/27 or waiting till April and buying then?

You will pay more for a 2014, if there are any left, in March/April than right now.

There's no telling if the current incentives will disappear or get even better after the end of December.

They are only incentivized to get rid of them.

Buy it now, finance the whole thing, then pay half off when you get your bonus.

Interest rates will do nothing but rise at this point.

I've been Quoted $11,200 out the door (includes tax, title, freight, etc.) on a 2013 with an Akropovic pipe. That's $9,999 sales price plus fees. I haven't gotten a price on the '14. I've got until 12/27 to decide.

No, the price on a 2014 will NOT go up. It's a left over model and the longer ya wait the more likely it is the dealer will be willing to negotiate on the "left over" models.

Ultimately the selling price of a motorcycle is dictated by the dealer and what incentives are available from the manufacturer. Yamaha has some smokin dealer incentives right now to help clear out old inventory. Those dealers who want to move some inventory are taking advantage of this by giving out some real bargains. Take advantage of them while they are there as Yamaha will probably not renew this incentive the first of the year.

I suspect they will base incentives on leftover inventory every month, so its hard to tell.
If there are still plenty of bikes to be sold, then the incentive might stay or even go up. If inventories run lower incentive gets pulled away, then the price will rise as the dealership will not take a loss by still giving u that discount.

How could last years model (ie 2014 model selling in 2015) cost more after January then now? Unless supply drys up.
Both 2013 & 2014 models (new or used) should take a drop in price. But they are now last years models.
Incentives will continue methinks, and increase. For So.CA for sure.

Manufacturers incentives aren't regional, they are national. If the amount of leftover stock has fallen below a certain point, then the incentives will cease. Dealers have the option to pay them off and thus receive the incentive regardless of when the bike gets retailed. Most dealers aren't in good enough financial shape to pay bikes off once the free flooring is over.

FYI: In So.CA most dealers have New 2013, New 2014, as well as an occasional used S10
For a New 2013 Quoted OTD:$13001, (internet listed for $9995.) sounds like some room to close deal with further discount or mdse$.
2014 was $2000-2400 more OTD (not quoted, suggested).

Same dealer Used 2013 9k miles OTD $11000.

ps: Temecula dealer. Impression was all prices had some discount room...

$3000 in taxes and fees seems very high. Dealer I bought my bike from has a white leftover 2013 for $9,997.00 plus tax, plate, and $100 doc. fee, no freight or prep. I could get a OTD price just under $10,800.
