They do not all come with cruise control. That is only availiable in the premium package only. I tried to everything on the bike configuration page and to get the Light White colorI was extremely happy to find a '23 base M package at no mark up ($23,700) in stock a couple months ago. They all have cruise control and I am assuming when you say bright white you mean M package. The base M's are the probably the best options/price package for dealers to have in stock so if I were them I would not discount, and possibly discount a couple hundred if someone was at the dealer with a pile of cash for full payment on my desk.
You must obviously know these dealers get calls all day long on all their bikes asking for a discounted price and what happens if they agree to sell lower - the person on the phone just calls another dealer and trys to better that offer.
If someone is too lazy to drive to the dealer and make an offer the dealer is not going to take them seriously. So going to the dealer that has the model you want in stock with your pile of cash is going to be your best bet for any discount. Or like suggested look for last years model.
Never bought a new vehicle before. But am really close to pulling the trigger on 23 light white sk1 rr. a couple of dealerships that I have contacted. Have responded like the msrp is pretty much the lowest that I am going to get it at. Is this pretty much the way of the world post covid. No more wheeling and dealing? Or should I find myself a different dealership. The two that I have contacted were both very short and pretty rude. I really don't want to spend 20 + thousand with people that make me feel like I'm an inconvenience.i started to inquire into The windy city international cycle dealership. Because they had a bike with a 98% match to the one I built on the bmw web site. They are 200 miles away from me. So doing any in person negotiating isn't very likely. it took me 4 days to get one of there sales people to even talk to me on the phone. They would just keep sending me generic texts about how they will have some one from their team contact me. Or ones like
(1/2) We're interested in fulfilling your vehicle order. I will need some time to get the information for you. A member of our team will get back to you after (2/2) that. If you'd like to stop in, which date and time works best for you?
. But then would never call. Finally I called. Just to have them treat my questions about purchasing/ ordering my first new bike . Like I'm an idiot for trying to find out what he out the door price would be. They have done nothing but blow me off. So is msrp pretty much the bottom line or am I just dealing with the wrongly people? Thanks for any Input I do appreciate it.
I'll I know is I had a 2012 bluefire sk1rr and loved the way it looked. But didn't like how it didn't have upgraded features like shift assist pro and cruise control. So I decided to up grade to a 2017Dudes, the changes are way overblown. Full stop. Hardly anyone is going to be able to tell the difference when on the bike. All recent litre sportsbikes are too spastic fast already and better than almost all of us.
Imagine if the new '23 rr only came out in some rubbish looking pink purple color and had some other visual looking defects that looked like absolute crap -- no one would buy it. It wouldn't matter it came with all the new electronic bells and whistles noted above.
In saying that, if the look of a new '23 floats your boat in that kind of way, then for sure get what makes you happy. But at least be honest enough with yourself to admit that its a vanity purchase, particularly if you're passing up a great deal on a leftover '22 or demo as the alternative and paying $3-4k more.
