Around 1998, I went to a dealer inquiring about a new motorcycle, he priced me a bike $1500-$2500 above MSRP, just because he could. At the time, the demand for his brand of motorcycle was strong, and this dealer (and I feel sure others could too) could get $1500-$2500 over MSRP on a standard model.
Now, when a dealer is willing to rip-off customers due to brand loyalty, and because he can, that is a STEALER! Does the dealership actually expect a purchasing customer to be loyal to his dealership? And return for parts, tires and service? Knowing that if given the opportunity, said dealership will not charge a fair price, said dealership will charge whatever price the dealership feels it can get away with, thus ripping-off a "loyal" customer without a second thought.
I am not saying all motorcycle dealerships are this way, but some dealerships have earned the title "Stealer", and deserve whatever criticism they receive!
And NO! I didn't purchase a bike from this stealer, I ordered a kit bike and built my own!
