2016 new TV's marked $6500 off?

A dealer in CA, Tri-City Powersports, is advertising new TV's and TVL's at some ridiculous discounts - $6100 off MSRP or $9888 for a new TV, and 13,998 for a new TVL. Not even demos - new bikes!! I thought I scored when I got my 1190RR for $4500 off.

WTF?

Is this legit? I am overloaded on bikes now, but this feels like such a bargain, it's almost criminal.

What's the scoop on these TV's? I did read where MV is discontinuing the 800 series in favor of the larger and more profitable bikes. Kinda reminds me of the deals around when Buell went under the first time - you get an 1125 for like $7000.

Might make a great 3rd bike.

Current Inventory/Pre-Owned Inventory from Tri-County Powersports

2014 Brutale 1090 RR / 2014 KTM 1190R / 2012 Triumph Bonneville SMQ / 2008 FJR 1300 /2009 Husqvarna TE310 / 1966 Metisse Desert Racer (2008 312R - sold; 2007 F4 - sold).

Well, maybe I just answered my own questions when I read the thread about the 2017 TV changes - lots of important parts changed out, and perhaps the discount reflects the gamble a buyer might take if they buy the 2016 and then need to worry about warranty repairs and such.

Still.... lotta bike for under $10k

I have about 6K miles on my '16. Very fun bike, only reason it doesn't get more miles is that I do mostly 2-up and the GS is a way better bike for that.

Hard to go wrong at that price, unless you get a problematic bike and have a lousy (or no) dealer. I've been lucky so far (knock on wood), and I have a good local dealer. In fact taking it there tomorrow for a new rear tire as the original is shot. Oddly enough the front went quicker than the rear.

I don't know where you read that but the 800cc three cylinder bikes have been the sales mainstay for MV outselling the the four cylinder bikes by quite a large margin and, it could be said in more favourable circumstances, the company's saviour. They've spent a lot of money developing it and recently getting it through Euro4 so I doubt very much they're going to discontinue it any time soon.

The prices that you're stating for the Tursimo are a bargain if you can tolerate having last years model. Will still have a 2 year warranty so if the local dealer is a good one then I would say that if there's am itch, scratch it.

I purchased my 2013 TVL new in December for $15 and change. I think they are eager to clear out last years inventory. In 3 months I've put about 3K miles on it. At $15, I couldn't pass it up, I was originally planning on buying a FJ-09 instead for about $11,500. Then I would need to upgrade the suspension, purchase luggage, etc. I think I have the better of the two bikes.

I'm also not convinced that the 2017 changes are all that drastic. I think the clutch difference is the same as was handled under the TSB. I really don't have any complaints about the bike - certainly shifts faster/smoother than my GS.

I concur, more like finessing and things they were obliged to do to comply with Euro4 rather than things that needed to be done.

I note that the rear indicators are the same, both of mine filled with water and failed, replaced under warranty and then filled with water again. Drilled a small hole in the bottom of each and they've been fine since.

fwiw, if I didn't already have a TV, I'd buy one of those 2016s in a heartbeat...

I wish the F3 was $6K off. Or maybe I don't, otherwise I'd have a 3rd bike in the garage

Gero, yep, mine were filled again on the next ride. Water gets in but can't get out. Bad design and quality control.

I drilled a 1mm hole in the very bottom of the indicator body. The black plastic, not the lens. Being careful not to drill too deep. Trapped water dribbled out as will any more getting in. Gave the hole a squirt of WD40 as well. No issues since.

I figured that even if water gets in via the hole it'll come straight back out again which is far better for the LEDs and circuitry than living in a goldfish bowl...

Have some aftermarket indicators sat on the shelf in my office with a strip of aluminium to mount them just in case they fail again. All my failures were in the first couple of thousand miles, since I've drilled the holes and 3500 miles later all is well.
