Thread: Yamaha incentives?
07-31-2012, 10:43 PM #1
So im close to working a deal on a 12' FZS... at this point I am waiting until tomorrow to see if Yamaha gives any more incentives to the dealerships. I guess WA had a dealer incentive of $500 last month (something they dont share with customers but give the dealer more room to work with?)
Anyone know of this is true or is the sales guys blowing smoke? Any way to tell what the current incentives are?
At this point the lowest I can talk them down to is 15,540 OTD with a single place trailer (that includes 10 percent sales tax) I dont feel like this is that great of a deal?? But have given 3 dealers a chance at it and they all walk away from it??

That is yamaha's current promo. Not quite sure what the $700 in incentives is all about. Dealers will probably say that's already figured into the price and get a kickback from yamaha.
This is the wrong time of the year to buy. But, if you must have now they have you by the balls. Crazy as $15,540 OTD sounds. It seems to be the going price this time of year. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2012-...item51a06d8c4a
freight & prep=$699
above=$13,997 + 10% tax & reg $1400+
$15,540 sounds pretty accurate. If you really must have it. Try to get something more from them thrown in. 4 year extended warranty and cover.

I believe they raised the 500 to now 700 on all 2012 models

Thanks guys. Every dealer up here wants 1200 for a trailer. I hate Seattle sometimes

So waiting until December what would I expect to save?

Since you're in a state where summer ends quicker it may only take til september for dealers to want to unload. The 2013 models will be coming out around then. They may take an additional $500-1000 off of the 2012 models to clear them out.
If buying newest model year. It's hard to beat boat show specials. That's when yamaha packages the extended warranties and free accessories into the deal. All the dealers at the show work out of the same yamaha display and their prices are all in the same range. Some charge Freight & prep with a lower ski cost. Others claim no freight & prep but the ski price is higher. In the end it almost always comes out the same. If you find the final prices are all comparable, buy from the dealer you will most likely take it to for warranty work.

My problem is for 2 months of riding I'm willing to pay 500 more.... But im seeing people say they are getting year old models for 4-5k off and if that's the case I'm willing to wait until January

me personally. I wouldn't touch a 2011-2012 model with that crappy ass teeth eating clutch. The 2013 models should have the newest clutch and idle drive gear installed. It's only been out a few weeks now and hasn't been proven long term yet. But, we all know what that 2nd gen clutch is all about.
I have 140 hours on my 09 stock clutch. But, i drive like i'm driving miss daisy unless it's in a straight line.
