Price increase chart: read it and weep

This chart shows a selection of 2010 price rises, ranging from the 25% hike to the Yamaha V-Max and R1 to the 4% increase to the Suzuki GSX-R600. Motorcycles for sale Japanese manufacturers claim that currency fluctuations and increasing manufacturing costs have forced the increases, with Yamaha being most aggressive. The V-Max, for example, has gone up from £15,999 to £19,999, the...

Price decreases?

Does this mean that with so called negative inflation in the UK (if you believe the government!) that Triumph's should be cheaper than last year? Maybe I might get a Sreet Triple R after all.

Rip off?

How are they ripping you off meanmachine? any more than the European manufacturers? They aren't putting up prices to earn more of your hard earned cash, they aren't putting up prices at all really. the POUND IS WORTH LESS, so by even the most simple of logic you will require more of them to buy a bike that has been imported from any country whose currency is worth more.

The pound is worth considerably more now than it did 6 months ago...

Anyway, buy British - Triumph produce great bikes ('though a number of their dealers stink) and whilst their prices have gone up its  not by much and we can thank the government and their return of VAT for that....

i visited my local yamaha dealer today an i was the only person in there, i cant beleive how much theyre asking for an r1! when at the kawasaki dealer down the road you can pick up a zx10r for little over 6000. You would have to be stupid to buy yamaha at the moment

price rises

will this affect second hand prices then? if so perhaps I might be able to afford to swap my fazer for a Triumph Sprint after all! :-)

Hee hee...

The ZX10R is a great deal... Don't buy one though, you'll only crash it!!! I know of THREE that have been written off in similar circumstances (going round a corner FFS!) Did put it up somewhere on here hoping a journalist would pick up on it as a possible story but maybe they've been bought out?

 

Anyway...

 

Yamaha against Ducati? Quite a challenge... Short term I would have the Ducati, long term I'd have the Yamaha... Ducati would only go and break!

 

Sterling will dwindle of the face of this earth shortly... Not worth the paper it's printed on, LITERALLY.

S1000RR Looks good value

Why would you buy an R1 at £12500 when you can get the S1000RR Sport with TC,ABS,QShifter

The Japanese are going to struggle this year and unfortunately for the dealers they will take the hit. I'm very glad I got my GSXR1000K7 when I did, they were selling UK bikes with Arrow cans for £7500 in 2008. It seemed a bargain then, it seems like an absolute steal now. Think I'll be keeping it for a few more years, it's very hard to juustify spending £12500 on a bike I only do 6000 miles a year on.
