New K1200s

Well I finally decided on a K1200S after much consideration. This is my first post here but Ive reading a lot of info on this forum. The KS is an 06 with ESA, ABS, Heated grip, On board comp and some other options. I will be paying $16,500 for the bke. The bike also came with the Nav111 and the rear bags. I was wondering if $16500 was a good price to pay.

Congrats on the new machine, you would love the bike.

Is this out the door price means all taxes and fees included or the base price?

Cheers,
Nick

if you've already purchased the bike what's the point in asking if you got a good deal or not. if you haven't purchased the bike 16,500 is a decent price especially considering you got the bags and GPS for free. MSRP on the 2006 "S" with all the options you mentioned minus the bags/GPS is 17,995 so right off the bat you said 1500. the bags run around 700 bucks and i think the gps goes for above a grand so yes you made out well. i paid 17K for my 2006 blue/white "S" with all the goodies and that was before they added free bags and gps. enjoy the ride

Thanks All

$16,300 was the final price out the door. The only thing I have to pay is sales tax.

I really thing I will enjoy it. I recently sold my Honda VFR that I like a lot. I think the VFR and the K1200s are very similar.

Thanks again

To me, 'out the door' means just that. How much $$ do you have to hand over to ride it home.

So it is more like $18k (give or take, depending upon the sales tax rate in your city and registration costs).

Are the GPS and Bags installed already, or additional cost? Both are easy to do. My dealer installed the bags free when they uncrated it, and they would have done the same on the GPS, but I had a broken foot, so they UPS'd it to me, and I installed it myself.



Congrats on the bike.

Lots of fun.

Then it is not OUT THE DOOR. OTD in PA would be $16.6k + 6%.
OTD as far as I know means key in the ignition you riding away!

As far as VFR and K12S being very similar.... YEah !
I-4 vs. V-4
1200 vs. 800
ESA vs 20th Century suspension.
Computerized valve check vs. V-Tech fiasco
Over 150bhp vs. ~100bhp
And on and on...

If you tell me a CBR1100XX.... closer although not there. but a VFR? C'mon !

Oh, yeah, Enjoy you K12S !!!

Jeez, take it easy, elefant. He already corrected himself "Out the door price was $17115.00." You sound like my old english teacher.

Personally, especially if it's a used '06, if you can wait the dealer out a little, you could get a better deal. If it's a new '06, i don't know. But make sure the recall on the ABS brakes was done or will be done. Negotiate to change the final drive after first service. I paid 11,800 pre-sales tax, out to door price , for a 3500-mile k1200R without ABS, ESA, but with heated grips.

Many people consider these bikes vaguely similar in certain respects: ergonomics, sporty but general-purpose orientation, ABS brakes, available factory luggage, etc. The K1200S has a lot more power.

If you liked your VFR, you'll love the K1200S.

I wish Honda would make an updated larger VFR to compete more directly with the KS, but alas it seems they've abdicated that market segment.
