New member with a question about order
Hello my name is David Miller, and just put $2,500 deposit on 2017 H2 (my third Ninja). Been riding since I was 14 Years old - 37 years of riding- so I quess Iím an old man (started in mostly dirt with a Hodaka 125 Wombat, and when parents were not looking, rode on street) Got caught once. Did not see mom coming up hill, and I took off right in front of her She knew it was me, so letís just say when I got home, it was not fun.
Basically, a sport bike rider since 1994 with a ZX-9R, but needed a bike for long trips, and one my girlfriend would like to ride on Ė she does not like riding on my Ninja. I like her on it because she as to lean on my back, the two touch points as you can imagine feel very nice - so ok Iím now a dirty old man. so, I also have a 2016 Yamaha FJR1300A that I will use on long trips.
Live in Seattle, WA Ė but dealer said $15K + $1K accessories credit for the FJR Ė oh they added $1,288 freight, assembly and servicing fee, $300 installation for top case, and dealer fee of $299.50. Bought the bike at a dealer in Oregon with NO Fees out the door.
Now a general question. The dealer I did not purchase the FJR from but ordered my H2 through says that besides the $195 Dealers fee, Iíll have to pay $2,000 for freight, assembly and servicing fee. While I understand the destination (freight) fees, I have never been charged above and beyond what most would consider a reasonable ďservice feeĒ in preparing a motorcycle for use. Has anyone else been hit with this distasteful practice?
