    I’m just trying to understand, so I know what I’m looking at.


    A dealer has two new ‘18 MSE on the floor, with a $750 price gap. I asked why, and they said just because one it slightly older than the other. I asked to confirm there are no differences. They said they are the exact same down to the color.


    Is that logical? If they are the same MY and both new, what am I missing?

    Yes this is normal. My last new bike was $1000 cheaper than the exact bike next to it. Dealers said the prices are based on the time on the floor.

    Yup, it usually has to do with how the dealer's flooring financing works. The bike that's been there the longest needs to move along before they basically start paying interest on it. The one that just arrived starts the clock fresh.
