Hey guys, So I just got off the phone with my dealer and got the number 9 spot on the waiting list.

$500 Refundable at any time.

I asked what they were charging for the SS and he told me MSRP plus $1300 which includes freight, destination charge and assembly. Tax,Title and License is separate. Just wondering if you all think this is reasonable and fair? seems alright to me but I honestly don't know.

Since we know there are OTD deals going for MSRP or less. I'd deal a MUCH harder on a #9 slot.

That's about the same as my Oregon stealership quoted me. 974+title, tags etc.......Not sure we can "deal" much harder given the fact that we're begging to be on a list of people in line. Especially if all the stealerships in your
state are charging about the same. I'm sure #10 won't mind riding away in your ss. :jimlad: I'm going to see what everyone in oregon is charging first though....Then I'm going to see about the Costco discount before pulling the trigger.

Be careful with Kmart and Walmart. You'll end up with a knock off Hyosung instead of the Polaris. You'll be riding around in a slingshot where they had to change the "o" to an "i" for legal purposes......and we'll all make fun of you. :playful:

It almost always costs more to be in the 2nd row center. No different than desiring to be at the front of the line. Econ 101.
What will be interesting is what the OTD price will be after the initial surge of excitement and anticipatory demand subsides.
Or will it?
Will the SS, after it is seen on the roads, actually drive more demand and thus higher OTD prices?
It will be interesting to observe.

Yes, if you are happy go for it. But many dealers all across the USA do not charge freight or set-up. Even one dealer in Alabama is selling below MSRP with no freight and no set up. Call around to dealers in your area you might be surprised you can save some bucks.

Freight and/or setup is pure profit padding on top of dealer invoice.
Might as well ask them to throw in floor mats! LOL.
If the SS sales stall out over time expect competitive pricing and dealer incentives. Or at least one can hope.
