    Default HOLY COW!!

    I just got an e-mail from BRP. They are offering $4,500 rebates on "select" 2017 models.

    That's a deal worth looking at closely--if your thinking about jumping on a 2017.

    Just picked up a new 2017 F3 Limited. It was marked down $1500 and they gave the additional $4500 rebate. Could not pass up that deal for my first Spyder

    I got the Email too. It's on "select models" at "participating dealers." They don't really tell you what models it covers.

    I got the same email, "Deleted it". Not trading.

    I'm going to wait and see what BRP will offer in the future.

    pretty sure thats the deal I got on my 17 at I Motorsports.

    a couple months ago, without BRP telling me doodly.

    I know they sure treated me right, and it was so convenient as to be silly.

    The rebate was the determining factor in our used vs new discussion last month.

    Went to a dealer with a 2010 RT with matching trailer for $10k with around 8,000 miles on it. Reasonable deal right? They wanted $7k down and something like 15-20% interest! Come to find out they only deal with their local podunk banks who only want to finance farm equipment (most of their inventory consists of those utility four-wheeler things.

    I did still owe on the Suzuki (only had it a year), but the down payment would more than pay off the bike they were getting in trade while the payoff was getting rolled into the financing on the RT. I would have ended up paying for the Suzuki twice and they would get a free bike! PASS!!!


    After that wasted day, I decided I would ride the Suzuki for another two-three years and just look later.

    Hubby suggested I take a look at Can Am's site to find other dealers around and we saw the rebate/discount. The special on the 2017's is the only reason I was willing to consider a brand new bike. Visited Pitbull down in Springfield MO. Came home with Angry Bug at less than 7% interest and lower payments than the used bike would have been.

    If it hadn't been for the special, I would still be on two wheels and only riding a couple times a month.

    How does the rebate work? When I contacted them, they said the rebate was already factored into the price you see posted. Elsewhere I've found a 17 F3L for close to 5 grand cheaper than Imotorsport. Guess i'm just confused

    Great news for first-time Spyder ryders, bad news for anybody trying to sell any used Spyder, and not just the late model ones. At some point it becomes crazy to buy used when you can buy new for only a couple of thousand more. Not only are you getting the factory warranty and roadside assistance, you're also getting any recent updates and improvements while avoiding any potential "hidden" problems or maintenance that wasn't done when needed. Of course, a great used Spyder is always a better deal, but unless you actually know the previous owner and his machine, you really don't know for sure what you're getting. The trick is in getting a "great" one and a bad one is a very, very bad thing -- as we've seen in some recent posts.

    RE: High interest--Shopping around will find you plenty of good deals on interest for financing. My current Vulcan is at 3.35%. 15 to 20% interest is for those who have very bad credit, or none. There are predatory ones out there that get 33 to 50%--as in payday loans.

    What may have been happening here is a game called "dealer reserve." The dealer makes a deal with the bank--as in your loan will cost 5%. The dealer then tells you your loan will cost 15%. You agree and finance for 15%. The dealer gets a check from the bank for the difference. They pocket the extra profit on your dime.

    I usually do the footwork ahead of time and have an approved loan for X%. If the dealer can match or beat it--I go with the dealer financing. CAVEAT EMPTOR
