So, you say you want to buy a Norge....?
« on: February 24, 2015, 11:10:03 AM »
Run, (don't walk) to your friendly neighborhood Moto Guzzi dealer right NOW!

I'm not going to put actual numbers up on this forum, but suffice to say your MG Dealer got an email today that will make you VERY happy on the price you'll get on a 2014 Norge.

Looks like there are both Brown and White available. These are brand new bikes with the full factory warranty and roadside protection and financing as low as 0.9%.

No longer have a friendly neighborhood dealer or any kind of dealer. That said, it sounds like there are some good deals out there. Of course one would want the white version. ;D They really are very nice bikes.

Before I run 1200 miles to my nearest dealer, I'd need some numbers.

I'd recommend calling them. Seriously. Even if you have to pay a company like Uship $500 to ship it to you, you're still going to be WAY ahead of even the KBB "Used" price for this motorcycle

You don't have to wait for numbers to be posted to the forum.  Get off your butt and go to a dealers website if you are interested.

HA!

What is this -- RONCO?

I resist the sort of sales tactic that tries to coax me to a store or website to discover the price.  If they want to sell me something, they need to get my interest.  "PRICES TOO LOW TO MENTION" and "WAIT!  THERE'S MORE!" strike me as seamy and don't interest me.  "I have [item] for sale @ $X.XX" has more of an appeal.

Don't list a price on my account though.  I'm already turned off to the promotion.

Oh, that's just what I don't need at all ... but want very much.  :D

And, I'm with those who find the "espresso" color great.

What's the deal with keeping the price a secret?

It's not a secret, but it's also not a set price that is recommended by the manufacturer.  You should call your local dealer and they'll tell you their best price. Remember, shopping locally helps keep your dealer around for your future enjoyment. If your dealer wants to take advantage of this offer and make you an amazing deal on a Norge, that's their prerogative. 

I don't want to give anyone the impression that I'm using this forum to sell things from my shop. Anyone who wants to know the price should call their local dealer. If you want to see what I'm selling them for, you can go to my website and see what they're selling for at my shop (it's right on the front page). We certainly are not wanting to put any dealers into a price war, especially not over what is essentially a one-time inventory clearance. 

I want to protect the sanctity of an amazing enthusiast forum and I don't want anyone to ever get the impression this is a place where dealers sell their wares...we are all the victims of enough marketing in our lives.

You're all very smart people (you already own Guzzi's) if you're serious about putting a new Norge in your garage, you'll make the call. If you're just curious and want me to pitch you, sorry.

He probably can't post the prices due to his dealer agreement with Guzzi.

From the Cleveland Moto web site:

2014 Moto Guzzi 1200 Norge GT8V (Brown or White) - $13290 ($3000 Off)

2012 Moto Guzzi V7 Classic Demo Model  -  $7999 ($1300 Off)

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Special (Red&White) - $8290 ($1000 Off)

2013 Moto Guzzi Griso (Black Devil)- $11990 ($1000 Off)

2014 Moto Guzzi Stelvio (Green) - $14,990 ($1000 Off)

2014 Moto Guzzi V7 Special (Silver&Gray) - $8290 ($1000 off)

2013 Moto Guzzi V7 Stone (Black) - $7999 ($400 off)

What a great statement of reality, nicely put.

I'll get away from in-laws when I'm next in Erie, and run over to say hi.  Probably not going to buy a new Guzzi, but I've never left a dealership without contributing a few pennies to overhead.

Thanks.

I just bought one last Friday (a white 2014). I didn't quite get $3,000 off, but it was very close to that (close enough not to worry about it). However, I do wish I had been able to take advantage of factory subsidized interest rates. It would have saved me only about $20 per month on the amount I financed, but it is the principle of the thing!

Norge is not listed for 2015 in Oz. I wonder if they are running the model out. I thought the Griso was next on the block. Perhaps not?

No Norges in stock at MPH.  If I didn't have any, I'd sell 'em for $1.

The op is showing some sales ethics by not posting prices. They're not a secret, it's just never a good idea to put a price on someone else's merchandise. The price is a balance between what the seller is asking and what the buyer is willing to pay. And it will vary according to how bad the seller wants rid of it and how bad the buyer wants it.
If one dealer. Only the seller knows what his costs are and what he can stand to let a product go for.

It's not a secret, but it's also not a set price that is recommended by the manufacturer.  You should call your local dealer and they'll tell you their best price.

My experience is that no one, dealer or individual, is going to tell you "their best price" over the telephone, you who could be some 10 year old, or just a tire kicker.

They'll tell you their best price when you're standing in front of them, with your trailer parked out front, and a wad of partially visible cash in your hand!!

I've tried it and it works well.  Talk is fine but you can't spend it at the grocery store ....  ;-T

I didn't have a trailer with me but I did have a temporary license plate with me. I told the dealer, "I am going to buy a bike, today!" and he believed me.

He matched the price of another EV that I had an ad for.

I imagine that Moto Guzzi/Aprilia are re-designing the Norge, at least to add ride-by-wire, cruise control, and variable riding modes and traction control. Perhaps they will also increase the rider's seat-to-peg distance for more comfort, add a larger windscreen, and enable our iPhones to connect with the bike in some way...

I love my new (2014) Norge as it is, but I could see being tempted to upgrade in the future.

Nothing in the pipe line at the moment. The 1400 Cali apparently sapped all the cash and did not sell in the numbers anticipated.
When they do get around to a new model I hope it doesn't become a BMW RT clone, over engineered and looks like a barn door on wheels.
