I should be honest, that was my deal out the door, but that was in a dealership out of state, so when i brought it home and registered it i still have to pay tax+registration fee, which was another 700. But figuring it your way, take off the $1000 accessories (got me the arrow slip-ons), i paid around 8700.... which i was happy with. With what i paid, i didnt think it was worth the extra cash for the brembos (would have been about a $2000 difference in the end). I never had a problem with the brakes, but i realy like the difference the GSXR master cylinder made.Let us know what happens!
P.S. Bob, awesome $%$$% Deal!
-1It is amazing why people would ask this question on a web site to begin with...
+1What is too much depends on way to many factors. Look at what the bike's Mfg suggested retail price is for your country/area and do the math.
Some guy in one part of the US might be able to get a better price in another......based on any number of reasons.
+1. Just buy the damn thing and don't fret over $500 or so dollars. If money is that tight than you shouldn't be buying it anyway. The dealers aren't going to give the things away. If you want a great deal, checkout your local Craigslist for a late model, low mileage used one. As with most new vehicles, they don't hold their value very well.Just pull the trigger... and Get The Bike! You're not dealing with a Chinese product* here. They're not gonna 'blow out' a big discount, never have. Heck, my '96 sold for more than that originally, and I'm still enjoying it. Bottom line, buy that bitchin' orange one and start enjoying it too. I'll bet in 1 week you won't even care what you paid for it.
