Smile Hello All, New Member here

I am new member to this forum from Atlanta, GA and hope I can learn and share info and experience about 1200GS. I am planning on buying a new 2017 BMW R 1200 GS Exclusive. Per See Dealer Costs site, there is a 10% diff between invoice and msrp. I dont want to pay the msrp. Any tips on negotiating the price. Does the Advalorem tax apply on the total purchase price including accessories and riding gear or just the bike price. Please advise.

Welcome to the forum.

You ask about advalorum taxes, but we only have sales tax. That plus title fees and registration is added to sales price. As for how much off, that is a loaded question. They are probably not coming off msrp too much on 17 models since they are just out and there are many 16 models still available. Do a little phone shopping.

Thanks for the advice.

The dealer had a standard suspension and I want a low suspension, they said it could be ordered but will take several weeks though. Will be ordering next week.

Found out from the dealer, Regarding Advalorem taxes, there is a .75% price difference if i purchased the bike with accessories and pay 6.75% ad valorem tax or buy the accessories separate and pay sales tax of 6%. Thought I would post what I found out since I posted the question
