Haggle Help

Ok guys, I seriously need your collective input -

I am going in tomorrow to buy an 06S matte. They have a black 07R but I just keep oggling the 06S, and I am not at a level to appreciate any performance differences b/w the bikes anyway.

It is too tall and has to be lowered, including 750 linkage. I am going to pay for the bike (majority of it anyway, i dont want title to transfer til I pick it up), but not pick up til march 07 because i currently have no place to house it. The guy said he would get me out a before tax/tag price of "just under or just over 20K with incentives included." Hmmm...

I feel like i want to offer 19.5 max (before TTL), or even less, based on threads here. I am not much of a haggler though.

What would you guys offer, and how would you couch it? Any thoughts are most welcome!

As for height, standard size i can tippy toe left foot but not right. Must be lowered. Up on the paddock I was kickin' 100% air, sad but sort of amusing to see I'm sure. I told him lowering + 750 linkage will have to be part of the deal to which he said "no problem."

Attached is a pic, best I could do after they closed. What do you all think? I have <24 hours to get advice!

Thanks in advance.

Oh by the way, hard to see in the pic, but this is a mono, and there is no front fender reflector which someone said is on all US bikes.

I want to ask the guy if any 06s are still coming over on the boat, because I would prefer a 1+1. You guys know if any more can still be ordered? I obviously have no time constraints.

Well i never let the salesman sit between me and the door. You can allways go higher but you can`t go lower. I`ve walked out the door more than once and goten them to go down.You arn`t there to make a new friend, your there to get the bike you want for the price you want. But that`s me and I enjoy the game. This the place to do your homework, These guys know the bikes.I got my new Brutale for $12500 plus tax OTD

Nice one Obmot, sorry you didn't get more responses ,but my 2 pence worth from the Uk wouldn't have been any use to you anyway. When do you pick her up?

thanks john, d-_-b,

I will not pick up til next march because I have no options for housing the bike yet - need to arrange that with a relative for next spring.

As for height i am about 5'8" 29-30" inseam in shoes. The bike is too tall but I am having them lower it and after that I'll just "deal" with it, I know there are shorter people out there who ride the F4s and manage, so I am not going to let 1-2" get between me and a sweet ride.

I'm tempted to say something regarding my opinion on customer service when someone is dropping 20 big on an item, but for now I will just bite my tongue and look forward.
