    Why are dealers charging $5,000 to $6,000?

    Many dealers in California are sold out of the Grom.

    The ones have them left are asking $5-$6k out the door.
    I laughed my ass off. There is no way in hell I am even paying $4k.
    Come Christmas time...they will all be under $3500.

    What it's like in your area?

    Old adage: "why does a dog lick itself? Because it can."

    Basic market forces dictate markup.
    Don't like the price? Don't buy.

    Each dealer only gets a couple this month. Then no more till December . Honda should have produced more.

    hundreds. of thousands. of posts. about this topic already ... supply and demand. they supply, and the grom's in demand. when a gallon of milk isn't as accessible it'll cost $45. shit, i remember when gas was 51 cents a gallon and i'm only 28.

    Welcome to the Party! CA Grom inflation state. SoCal especially.
    Limited quantity? Want to be the first to own? = Pay over MSRP + !
    Fairly common in the auto industry.

    The dealers that quoted me $5k to $6k just shot themselves in the foot...not just on the Grom...but on all the other bikes I buy. There is nothing wrong with a great profit margin....but price goughing is wrong.
    I will never go back.

    In this motorcycle market, dealers cannot afford to be so short sighted.
    They should be trying to keep customers coming back long term.
    Instead, their goughing strategy just back fired...dipshits.

    As soon as I get my grom, I will be posting pictures of my purchase on Escondido CC, North County HOM, Vey's Powersports Facebook pages and tell them where I bought it and how they won't get one cent of my money on parts or labor the rest of my life since they were trying to F their customers.

    Vey's went from 3700 OTD to 5200. Go Fu.ck Yourselves.
