Honda lists shipping charges in their site.
Well, I bought my 2019 Honda Monkey today!
Ended up paying $5150 OTD.
I got it at SoCal Honda Powersports in Carson and it was a very positive experience.
Nice shop with lots of inventory.
They had a Super Cub.
Even though I never considered getting one, that thing was beautiful. Well done Honda!
I wish that dealership was closer to my house.
Here's the breakdown.
Accessories $6.30 (having them add a pigtail for my battery tender)
Tax $420.50 (I had under estimated this, Los Angeles tax is by ZIP Code.)
Document Fee $85.00
CA Tire Recycle Fee $4.00 ( Ugh, another Calif tax)
Deliver bike to my house. 27 miles. $75.00
that leaves $124 that went to the dealer. I'm ok with that. They have to make some money.
He threw in free batteries for life. Nice little perk.
It will be delivered next Tuesday.
I'm going to go get the nursery,...uh, I mean, the garage cleaned up and ready for it.
I'll post some pictures when I get it.
Thanks all for your help on this.
Congratulations on your new toy! I love this little bike. Every time I take mine out I venture further and further from my house. It's such a fun little bike.
I paid $3965 for the Red none ABS Monkey otd, pretty pleased.
$4181 otd in Iowa (red non-abs)
$4315 OTD in NH (Red with ABS)
Here's a quote on a banana yellow non-ABS from the Honda dealer in Santa Clarita, Los Angeles County, California. $6k out the door. Seems to be about $750 to $850 above what others have done out the door from competing SoCal dealers. California charges property tax to register vehicles for the first 10 years after production date, with a depreciation schedule over those 10 years. This is in addition to 9.5% sales tax in this part of Los Angeles County. So $500 to $1,000 more than other states for the same bike is common. But this seems extreme even for SoCal, looks like they've inflated the Freight/Assembly and Preparation charges.
Unit price $3974.49 Freight/Assembly $554.00 Preparation $697.00 Documentation fee $85.00 Vehicle tax $504.51 CA tire fee $4.00 License & registration fee $151.00 ELT filing fee $30.00 Total $6000.00
