It would be nice to hear why BRP justifies the cost being more in the US... BRP needs to be more in touch with their consumers. Posting stupid survey's online isn't the only way to communicate with it's customers.

Frankly they don't care.
The consumers meaning YOU still buy them and as long as you do things will not change.

This Should Be In The BS Bin
PS You may have seen this editorial in Cycle Canada.
By Costa Mouzouris
In 2006, new motorcycle sales in Canada topped at 82,022, compared with
1,022,332 in the United States. More than twice as many machines were sold
in the state of California alone (166,280 in 2005) than in all of Canada.
Why this comparison? Because my inbox is stuffed with messages sent by
readers demanding that Canadian prices be adjusted to reflect our stronger
Retail price disparity between the two countries varies between 15 and 35
per cent. Enough to drive buyers south of the border in search of a deal.
However. retail pricing is not based on exchange rates alone, and believing
that we should be paying the same price as Americans is shortsighted. The
US has buying power that we Just can't match, and every new motorcycle
bought south of the border boosts US numbers, while contributing nothing to
Most Canadian motorcycle distributors are separate entitles from the
manufacturers they represent. and they buy motorcycles in the currency of
the manufacturer's country of origin. Major brands traded in US dollars
include Ducati, where Canadian bikes are bought from the US distributor (a
Canadian distributor is slated to begin operations sometime next year). and
Harley, where Deeley Imports deals directly with Milwaukee. As such,
Canadian pricing of these makes (which has dropped significantly in the
past couple of years) better reflects the sliding US dollar-more so with
Harley, as those bikes originate in the US and are not bought from Italy in
euros Bear 111 mind that on the global market we're dealing with a slightly
stronger loonie and a much weaker US greenback. Also, exchange rates
between buyer and seller are determined when orders are placed and are
revised quarterly, or less frequently, depending on the manufacturer.
Transportation fees are incorporated into a motorcycle's cost, and they
are naturally lower in the US because of volume. Bikes coming into Canada
still have to cross the country, and with fewer machines being shipped,
per-unit transport costs are higher. Also adding slightly to the cost are
speedometers that must read in kilometers and bilingual owner's manuals and
labeling. Canadian distributors are not bound by law to honour warranties
on vehicles not originating in this country safety recalls are mandatory),
and any such warranty work is covered on the goodwill of each distributor
and is meant to accommodate travelers. Some Canadian distributors can claim
all or part of such warranty costs from the manufacturer, while others are
on their own.
From experience, I can say that no dealer appreciates performing warranty
work, whether they sold the bike or not Manufacturers have a flat rate for
warranty repairs, which is below the actual time it takes to fix the bike,
and at an hourly rate lower than that posted by a service department. Now
Imagine a local dealer that has a potential customer interested in a new
bike, yet the dealer can't match the price of the US dealer 50 miles away
(to even come close to the US price a Canadian retailer would have to sell
below cost), That customer then buys the bike in the US, while the Canadian
dealer is left with an unsold machine, and is paying monthly interest on
it. making the bike more expensive to keep by the day, Then, sometime
later, that same customer comes in with an engine knock in his
American-bought bike and expects-even demands-a no-cost repair under
warranty. Now, if I were that dealer (and I say this not as the editor of a
motorcycle magazine who risks being accused of siding with the
manufacturers, but as someone who spent two decades working in dealerships,
some of them struggling to survive), I'd kick them out. Fortunately for
across-the-border shoppers, most distributors I and dealers are more
forgiving, and depending on the make, the bike might be repaired. So the
Canadian dealer loses the sale of the new bike and makes next to nothing
fixing it. which may cause prices, in the future, to go up-if you don't
make money you need to raise prices or you go out of business, For most of
the last decade, Canadians have been paying less for motorcycles than
anywhere else in the world. It's only this latest downward slide of the
American dollar that makes US bikes more appealing to Canadians. A Honda
919 retailing in Canada for $11,399 would cost $8.475 if bought in the
States when factoring in the exchange rate. and not counting import-related
costs. In the UK that same bike would cost $12,210, and in Australia, where
the Canadian dollar is experiencing an even more favourable exchange rate
than in the US, the 919 would still set you back $12,660.
Pricing in the US (the biggest market in the world for larger
displacement motorcycles) is lower than the worldwide average, and due to
our proximity to our neighbours, many buyers will take advantage of this.
Importing a motorcycle from the US, though beneficial in the short-term to
a consumer, is detrimental long-term to the Canadian motorcycle Industry.
And ultimately it's the consumer who risks losing the most if Canadian
distributors and dealers are expected to compete on an unfair playing
