    Anybody got a good Guzzi dealer in the southwest?

    Looking to trade my 2018 CB1000R in and get a V7III.

    Vegas dealer wants 20% in fees plus tax and I'm sorry Vegas but I refuse to be ripped off. Most of the Vegas dealers have started this trend which is why I rarely buy here even though I buy at least one new bike per year.

    Also super low trade in value on a mint condition 9 month old bike(way below wholesale).

    Unfortunately for dealers we are on the information age and dealers elsewhere are not doing this rip off fest.

    Tucson has a Moto only dealer (Italian motos only), no kwads, no boats. Seem like good guys.

    Not impressed with the new Vegas dealer. They mark up parts 20% from list too. I like to spend local over internet but not going out of my way to get ripped off. Good luck with the search.

    Carson City Motosports is a Moto Guzzi dealer now. Dropped in yesterday and saw them on display, relly good selection. I don’t know how they are to deal with.

    Reno has the same dealership as Vegas, Eurocycle, used to be a good store up until the Yuill boys sold it to the current owners. Went from being a bunch of knowledgeable gear heads running it to a bunch of youngsters blasting rap in the showroom. Yeah, I know I’m old....

    GO AZ Peoria location carries Guzzi (only Guzzi dealer in the Phoenix area). I don’t think they sell any though - looks like they’ve been sitting on the same bikes for a while - which might be great for scoring a deal. Prices are already slashed. Their Scottsdale location carries Honda, which might help your trade appraisal a bit.

    Be warned though, their freight & set up fees are always inflated. With the slashed Guzzi prices you could probably do okay though. Good luck.

    Plenty of online resources for parts. I turn bikes so quickly though, it may never need any parts.
