Invoice on 2013 fx cruiser sho?
Hey guys. I'm considering cutting my losses and getting a second four stroke. I have a 2011 fzs now, and recently an xlt1200.
Does anybody know what invoice is on these? I don't know how accurate factorypricing.com is, but they claim the 2012 invoice to be $12,290. Of course the MSRP went up for 2013, but all else being equal could we assume the 2013 invoice is around $12,544?
That is just an estimate using the 2012 data, and assuming the same markup of around 16%. I'm not sure if that website is accurate or not.
Can anybody throw some real world numbers into the mix? I'm not asking my dealer to give me invoice, but I am fairly certain this month yamaha is offering the dealers a back end incentive to sell units, he pretty much told me this.
Currently they are offering $1200 off the machine, plus the $500 rebate, which of course is the same everywhere else. If the numbers on factorypricing.com are even somewhat accurate, he's making $1000 off me. I thought him making $500 was fair for both of us, since I'm still being charged a $500 freight plus a heavy reg fee.
I know dealers each are different with regards to fees. One dealer charges $175 for the reg, one $7.50. One is $100 doc fee, one has no doc fee. One has $500 freight fee, one has $399. They make some money on the fee markups as well is my point.
I'm not looking to rob the guy, especially with the short supply on waverunners this season, but I would like to know what his cost really is so I know it's a fair deal. Hopefully you guys have more experience with pricing.

2013 Fx sho cruiser price
I too am looking at a 2013 fx sho cruiser and the one and only quote I've received locally (South Texas) was $15100 out the door (tax, title, "dealer fees", EZ loader trailer). Based on everything I've learned on GH over the past few months, I'm thinking they're at least $1000 higher than what i should pay. When I asked what the price was for just the Ski (not including everything else) they said $12399. Based on that, there seems to be a substantial mark-up when everything else is added in. I'm contemplating on waiting until the end of the season or holding off until the 2014 models are released.
Also want to thank everyone on this site because I've learned a ton. Hopefully I can start riding soon...

Is it $12399 without the incentives? MSRP is $14,899. I got mine for $13,599. Then $500 more off for the rebate yamaha is running this month so a selling price of $13,199. Then with tax, extension of the 2 more years of warranty on top of yamaha's 3, and a cover it came to almost exactly $15k without a trailer. So I would say you are getting quite a good deal.
My dealer had to swap in a machine so I feel he wasn't as aggressive as he could have been, but I liked working with him.
Good luck, it's a hell of a machine.

It's $12399 with incentives included (3yr warranty). However, that does not include dealer fees, tax (6.25%), title, or trailer. I may go back and offer $13200 OTD for just the ski and go buy a Triton trailer somewhere else if they accept.
