This won't be the 1st time this type of thing has happened to me. I took a recently purchased 2004 749R into the dealer to have stuff I needed for track days done and ended up in the showroom looking at their 1200S T and it turns out its their demo. The owner was telling me about the bike and then said he'll need to sell it soon because his 2013 demo is on the way.

Curious as to what people are buying new ones for and how much more, if any, a demo unit could get off the MSRP.

I'm in SoCal if area matters at all.

My local dealer has a '10 1200 base demo model with 3,700 miles. I rode it, fell in love, etc. However, they still want $14,000 for it.

I shopped around for a while and found an '11 base model with 4,100 miles, plus $1,300 in accessories, for $11,000. It wasn't a demo, however. A rich guy bought it, added the stuff, rode it for a year and traded it in. The dealer got it back cheap so they were able to sell it cheap. You can find good deals on demo's, but in my past 6 month experience you won't find a killer deal on a demo. The dealership has too much money in it.

As mentioned above, Craigslist is your friend. Use searchtempest.com to search CL cities near you. Also, Cycletrader.com and Ebay are great places to find deals.
