Any word on incentives offers on 2019 & 2020 GSA bikes still in dealer stock????
Q1 Retail Offer | BMW Motorrad (bmwmotorcycles.com)
I don't think I've seen BMW offer any incentives on the 1250 GS/GSA since it was introduced in 2019.
Yes! New Brembo brakes!
^^ Brembo-Shmrembo... I'd take Hayes w discount - not picky that way...
If you have a dealer with a brand new 2019 on the floor I'd think the dealer would make a deal regardless of what BMW is officially offering. A visit with intent to buy will net you the best deal.
Well, since your options are "Brembo" or "no bike", good luck!
^^ All good - has the bike and Brembo's too!!
The dealer has already marked the bike down to dealer cost, but it is still to high considering it is a 3 year old bike. The dealer is waiting to see if there will be any incentives from BMW. I guess I will just have to wait and see.
I scoured far and wide looking for dealers offering deals on New, old stock. Theres a dealer in Sturgis that has a couple of new 2019's GSA's. No incentives were offered and when asked about it, I was simply told "Not at this time". You're better off looking for a demo 2020. Dealers seem a little more motivated to work deals on those.
No incentives but for a 2020 something like $2K off MSRP would be a realistic expectation.
Motorcycle sales were way up in 2020 - the used market was hot, supply chains backed up.. why would any company _need_ to offer incentives in such an environment, especially on a 2 (model) year old machine that was in no way a lemon?
^^ to move unsold inventory due to Covid, Hayes etc and make more room for '21s??
When demand is high, they don’t bother with incentives. You might get a last year’s color with a little off, or you might get a dealer to toss on a vario case or two, but thats about it as far as it goes it seems.
Right now BMW has incentives on virtually all 2020 bikes with the notable exception of Hayes-affected models. Explain that.
I got 1,700. off on a new 2021
Last I checked, I said “You might get a little off a last years color...” And you come at me with this? I don’t have to explain anything, friend. Maybe basic reading comprehension, but nothing else.
A 1250GS/A is hardly a model that needs incentives to sell.
The logic I'm arguing against is "people were buying bikes in 2020, why would BMW have incentives" that doesn't single out GS. That kind of blanket statement is obviously false because BMW does have incentives on most of its models right now.
Specifically GS is also not that special - BMW did offer incentives on the previous year GS in the past.
An argument that there was the unique combination of high bike sales in 2020 and the relatively high demand GS that would obviate the need for incentives would have sounded more plausible but going for so much nuance is clearly not on brand for Adv Rider. And it still doesn't explain why BMW didn't offer incentives for a few other models. However, all those models were also on the Hayes stop sale, which could hardly be a coincidence.
How about comprehending the difference between manufacturer incentives and dealers willing to make a bit less profit on an older bike?
