I got mine this June from the dealer in Victoria, BC for $12500 out the door. Lots of dealers are discounting them since they are discontinued. Find one, buy it, enjoy it!

Nice prices, guys! I think the GT went for around $1000 more in CA vs. the US (not sure why, the exchange rate is so close...), so even better. I paid $10,500 from a dealer in Ohio after fees and such, paid sales tax when I got home (8%). To be honest, I'd still be happy paying a lot more! 32 degrees out yesterday (that'd be 0 for all you Canadians) and it was a perfect lunchtime ride in the hills near my house. I hadn't flogged it like that in a while.

So here's a few pics of the ST I looked at this weekend. Looked clean, and nice low mileage. Now I just need to decide whether or not to take the plunge. I've got a week to decide before he puts it into storage for the winter. Or, someone else snaps it up...

Well, I took the plunge. I am now the proud owner of a 2009 Sprint ST. Thanks for all the advice. Boy it's going to be a long winter this year...

P.S. Black is the fastest colour, right?

Noice!

Just curious but it's looks like there's no clear coat over the tank sticker.

Nice! You bought something worth hanging on to, nobody makes a sporty Sport-Tourer anymore. Yes it will be a very, very long winter for you.

There is, it just doesn't show up well in the pics. I also noticed that they clear over the Sprint ST stickers on the fairings. First time I've ever seen that...
