Out the Door Price
I'm about to buy a Monkey. Yellow, no ABS.
Before I go in to negotiate, I thought I would see what you all paid for your Monkeys.
I'm paying all cash.
I'm in California and this is the breakdown that I've been able to figure out.
Tax 6.5% $260
Set up Fee $300
Document Fee $100
I realize the dealer needs to make some money too. That will probable be another $300 to $500.
So the bike will probably be over $5000 out the door?
Are my expectations right?
What did you guys pay?
I don't know how much of a demand there is now, but with your breakdown, I would hold them to under $5000. Let them make their money on their doc and set up fees. That's 10% of the bike's MSRP. Plus, if they sell the monkey at full pop, they typically make about 10% on that as well.
I paid around 4400 for mine OTD, but the dealer and I go waaaaaaay back about 30 years. My tax rate here is 4.15%
I think I paid $4375 for one with ABS ($4200 MSRP). That did not include sales tax or title though. I had to drive a little ways out of town for that deal, as my local dealership wanted almost $5k exclusive of tax for the same bike. This was back in late March.
As a comparison, I paid $4,300 cash out the door for my 2018 Grom. That includes 9.5% California sales tax. Everything costs more in Los Angeles.
2018 GROM: Modified for reliability longevity gas mileage... and fun.
Thanks for the replies.
It's very helpful to hear from people who actually bought the bike
instead of loud mouths that tell me they could negotiate a lot of the fees out......blah...blah...blah.
The California bikes also have to be compliant with our EPA requirements.
I don't know if Honda issued a California specific model.
If so, there is probably cost baked into that too.
As Swampass noted there is probably wiggle room in the Setup and Docs fees.
So I‘ll work within that when negotiating.
If I can get a price under $5000, I‘ll be happy.
I hope I can join you all in being a Monkey owner.
In Colorado with my non-ABS Yellow, the dealer first quoted me at $5488.29 and I said HELL NO. Bought it for the following, which is still a bit high honestly:
Selling Price - $4,175.18
Delivery & Handling - $249
Tax - $345.64
TOTAL - $4,769.82

Call around and see what other dealerships will give you. Your local dealership might be more willing to work with you on the price if they have what you want in stock, and you have a quote for less money from another dealership. While mine did not, it was worth driving an hour out of my way to save several hundred bucks.
In this area, the yellow monkeys are in high demand. It seems to be the color combo every one is going for. I was offered money for mine on two separate occasions. Both times at the shop I purchased from. There were two brand new red ones on the floor. I mentioned that and was told they wanted yellow.
