Another price quote from a dealer came in. This one is from the local dealer in town. They are not the biggest dealership and are known for being really proud of their stock. They also tend to cater more to BMX and dirt and not so much to touring/cruising or even sport touring. Their service department is good though and they are where I go for service for anything I don't want to handle on my own. Their email reply was:
It always amuses me when a dealer attempts to make me feel like I should be lucky they are even just a little under retail pricing by quoting me the MSRP... as if I wouldn't already know that. I was in their store just the other night and told THEM when the 1300s are expected to show up! I did sit on a f6B and looked over a CTX700 that was on the floor. The f6B was nice but bigger than I want and the 700 has foot forward controls that I really don't do well with. Can't wait for the CTX1300s to show up to sit on one. Will likely go to Storm Lake Honda when ready to buy. 144 miles is not far to go for saving $1000 at least.Robert,
Thanks for your inquiry about the new 2014 CTX1300 Deluxe. The CTX1300D is scheduled to arrive in March.
Msrp on the deluxe model is $17499.00. We would sell you one for $16,999.00 plus applicable fees.
Thanks again for your interest and please let me know if you have any questions or would like to reserve a bike for delivery this spring.
