    Being a little fortunate and having a couple coins during these tough economic times I was hoping to see what type of deal I could get on a beemer. Any US based riders willing to share their Out The Door price and what part of the US you are based?

    Thanks,

    Here in southern Oregon I paid MSRP for the bike plus ABS, center stand, comfort package (OBC & heated grips), and clear signal lenses.

    Total price: $12,670

    I've talked to two different dealers (or their sales guys) no one is dealing, they are flying out the door so fast the dealer has very little cost in them.

    Yes, it does. Or rather, it includes destination. My dealer doesn't charge for prep. And I paid another $188 to the People's Republic of Oregonia for the privilege of riding in the rain here. But $12,670 is what my dealer got.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again....

    Dealers are paid by BMW for the pre-sale prep on the bike, and the $495 destination BMW charges the dealers is an actual real cost to get the bike from Germany to the dealer. Any additional prep charged by a dealer is just extra profit extracted from the un-informed. Seek out dealers who display the "Monroney" as the hang tag.

    Anybody can price out a bike on the BMW national website. Base MSRP is listed, as is the $495 destination. Click on either the "View Specs" or "Download Specs" links and all option prices are listed.

    I don't understand why anybody needs to get on this site and ask how much a BMW bike costs, it's just a few clicky-clickies away.

    An F800GS is $12,520 WITHOUT the centerstand, but with everything else except the factory installed alarm.

    It's all apples to oranges unless the option list is known.

    That's what I was thinking. And yet, we still haven't seen the total amount people are ACTUALLY forking over. Bottom line, there's no way you're walking out of a BMW dealer with a loaded 800GS without spending over $14k of your hard earned money.

    For a REAL data point:

    My bike has a centerstand, ABS, comfort package, and clear lenses for the standard $12,670, plus...

    Doc prep $55
    Tax $1152
    Extended Warranty $1586
    Gap Insurance $600
    License $91
    Tire fees $3.50
    Destination $495
    And I can't find the breakdown, but the handguards, bashplate, installation, and other dealer 'fees' was $741. So I probably got robbed a few hundred bucks there. Big deal, in the grand scheme of things.

    Grand total? $17393.28

    When I answered the post the first time I interperted OTD as the total amount of the check you wrote including sales tax ($978). I wrote a check for $12,975 and that was it. I did pay the parts department additional dollars for the Akra and the handguards, and the dealer installed them for free. I was very pleased with the service and the dealer - top notch IMO. I flew to San Diego to pick up the bike, the dealer picked me up at the airport (nice touch), and the bike was ready. Normally you can ride from San DIego to San Jose in about 8 hours - it took me two days and a lot of dirt. My new F800 looked a little beat when I got her home, and I was a little beat but grinning from ear to ear. If you want to include airfare that was $155, and it cost me $74 to get my car out of the parking lot at the airport.

    Do like me, be patient & find a used one. It is probably the only way to get a few bucks off MSRP for the time being. However, I got a call today from my salesman John who sold my Triumph to me over a year ago. There @ Euro Cycles in Tampa, FL they have a stripped (of options) yellow 800GS listing for just over $10,000. I was originally shopping for a non-abs bike (which is why he called) to save a few $ but wound up saving when I found the used one in Dallas (Plano).

    bxr140, did you not read any of the previous posts? As I said previously, I paid $12,670 plus $188 in State of Oregon lic. and doc. fees. My bike IS loaded. It has ABS, center stand, comfort package, and clear signal lenses, everything except the alarm. There's no sales tax in Oregon, and there were no other costs, fees, or hidden charges. I wrote a check for $12,858. That is the ACTUAL amount I forked over. Then I rode the bike home. That's it. And that's one hell of lot less than $14K!

    Yeah, and I also noticed that he paid the $495 destination charge twice, since, as Nemesis noted, that amount is already included in the $12,670. And Gap Insurance? Extended warranty? Sounds to me, bxr140, like you made your dealer a veeeeerrrryyy happy man. :lol3
