    Thought I'd start a new thread for Talon Pricing of what everyone is getting quoted and/or paying for the new Talon.

    Updated 3/15/19

    I got prices all over the board the last several months. Had one reserved with a local dealer, but was not shipping until May. Made a deal to get it sooner at different dealer.
    Final price $21,200 Out the door including all taxes and fees.

    Not the best deal, but got the machine two months earlier and a reasonable drive away.


    What's everyone else paying?

    Mind sharing who your dealer is. You can message if you would like. That’s awesome pricing from what seen and right in line with what I’d be willing to pay.

    Jerry, at Sports Cycle Rockingham NC. Waiting to hear back from Schroaders Honda in Hendersonville NC.

    Purchased a Polaris sportsman from Jerry and by far the best dealer experience I've had in a long time.

    That's a great point, because too often prices are shown to lure people in to later find out, Oh by the way, ... there are all these fees, doc., freight, handling, preparation, etc...

    If you are interested in the lowest price check Abernathy’s in Union TN. They are usually the lowest price with no gimmicks.

    That’s true on a 2018 carryover model with factory incentives but on the Talon I’m guessing closer to a 10% discount. It would be easy to check with them. They also discount accessories and that would be a higher % discount. If I lived a thousand miles closer I would be interested.

    Jerry at Sports Cycle doesn't mess around with fees. Great to deal with. Also ask him about tire/Rim swaps before you take delivery if you plan on upgrading.

    I suspect the pricing with be firm (little room to haggle), whatever the discount percentage will be off of MSRP, especially until a number of these units flow into the hands of buyers and inventory begins to build some vs. anxious buyers out there right now with demand and no units on the floor..

    gotta love the dealers that will ask you msrp plus delivery and say they can't budge on price! It baffles me how many dealers play that game and actually think people won't shop around or shop for the best price!!!

    Just got quotes on 1000X for $18,299 and 1000r for 19,000 but have to travel to get. My target was 18k, hoping I can a local dealer to work with me at that price.

    Can anyone explain to me how Honda pricing to dealers works? Do they get a kickback after sale or do they get pricing below dealer invoice? Basically, can the dealer sell below dealer invoice and still make profit?

    The answer is probably yes most of the time, but why would a dealer discount a current product below invoice? Slow sellers or year end close outs are more likely to see better prices. Only the Dealer and Honda know true dealer cost and it might vary for numerous reasons maybe even among dealers based on sales target or volumes. The prices quoted on this forum are a good indicator of a low figure in a competitive marketplace. Buying from a reputable dealer close to home might also be equally important for many of us.

    Heartland Honda ( Springdale, Arkansas ) has taken very good care of me, except for one time, all it took was a e-mail and everything was good!

    I can tell you around our neck of the woods: it depends who you ask.

    The best I can tell "dealer invoice" is a BS number the dealer is able to use to pretend they are giving machines away. I know for a fact that in the auto industry that's how it works: dealer invoice is a number used as a bargaining chip, but its not true dealer cost.

    I had some dealers tell me the volume guys get a kick back, some guys tell me they are getting the product cheaper, etc. Everyone had their own little spin on it.

    My favorite was "Abernathy's must be buying wrecked units at a special dealer only auction- that's how they sell all those soo cheap. Then they do repairs and sell them as new products. They retain the factory warranty but I wouldn't want one" :rolleyes: Honda must be dropping a LOT of Pioneers off the side of semi-trucks of that's the case :D

    I pulled the trigger today with my local dealer. Put money down on a Red 1000X for $19,200 plus 10% off any accessories ordered. I ordered Nerf bars, Lower doors, and Front aluminum bumper with it. He has a Blue X and a Red R coming in in April. Then the Red X coming in May. Unfortunately it doesn't look like I will have for Takeover, still be sporting the mighty P500.
