I was wondering if any of you out there has used the company OTD Cyclesports to purchase a bike through them. They have an out-the-door price for a 2007 CBR600rr of 9,299. Does anyone have good or bad experience with them? Were you able to go to the store and pick your own bike? Any details would be appreciated.

I bought my '06 through them and I would absolutely use them again. It was a very positive experience and my OTD price was exactly what I was quoted, not a penny more.

I will definately buy from them again.. call a few days ahead and make sure the color is on the floor.. my red 07 was just getting off the delivery truck when i pulled up..

Not a bad place to buy a bike

I almost bought a bike with OTD. The problem is; I live to far from them as far as service goes ( come to think of it, I don't know if they even have a service dept) But they always have a good OTD price! Here is what you do, bring the same ad your were looking for the price comparison and find a reputable delership who will match their prices. See if you can even get it lower. I know there is a site where they tell you the invoice of a specific bike plus what it cost for the dealer to put it together or the notorious "freight and set up fee" (by the way it only cost a dealer 200 bucks for putting it together!) Somehow they charges between 2-3 grand! Here in So Cal at least! Hope this helps :icon_stud

Why not just purchase the bike from OTD? They offered you a great deal with no hassles and now your going to give the profits to another dealer who would screw you over, on price, if given half a chance?

Also, the OTD dealers around here are no different from any other dealers. They have full showrooms, parts departments and service departments.

Quick questions for those who have more experience with this...

I have a friend who wants to buy an 07 600RR.

I bought mine locally back in April at 10K out the door.

I'm certain the price should be less now, with the next model year coming up.

I called the same local dealer to ask them what their price was, but they just spewed the same numbers they gave me back in April. I know the owner of the dealership, so he got me the 10K price back then. It can be argued that this price was not a great "deal", but living in West LA, it was good enough for me.

My friend on the other hand is looking for the best price possible. So...how can I help him get a better price on this bike (cheaper), from some place like OTD? I noticed a lot of people use advertisements. Where should I look for these ads, or tell my friend to look for these?

Thanks in advance!

OTD gives you a price with no bullsh*t unlike. like Hahm they like to play the sales man games. so if you can get a quote from OTD most likely other dealers can only match that price, but other dealers rarly beat the price.

BTW all the Hahm sales mans are lying hoers, and I stand behind every word of this statement. back in Jan Fed when I was getting quotes for this bike, Hahm said they could beat the 10,200 price which was given to me by OTD, while my third source OC Honda said they could go for 10300. so I waited a week to see if i can get any more quotes. a week later, OTD called said they can get me one for 10300, but not grantee, while the Hahm said no one could let one go for at least for 10500. if those lying basters did not promos me that they can beat the price I would of sign the deal with OC Honda at the time with 10300.

got mine through them. if anything, just email them, thats what i did. they stay true to their word, even their emailed words. i like how there is finally a dealer who is honest, but some say that their "tactics" (read: honesty) are putting other dealers out of business.

Tactics or whatever, it's definitely gotten my business (2 bike purchases from them) and referral business (3 friends referred purchased from them). OTD all the way! If it's a bike that I can get from them, then I will.

I had the same experience when purchasing my 07 through OTD.
First time I've ever bought a bike, but I don't have any complaints

Bought the wife a Black 07 today from OTD in Inglewood (L.A. Cyclesports). I thought that they were pretty damn nice and knowledgable as far as stealerships go. They even didn't try and rape me too bad on my trade-in. Probably one of my best interactions with a dealership.

Thank you to everyone who've provided all the insight regarding working with this dealership. I will be turning my friend onto this dealership first to see what kind of a quote he can get and then MAYBE try and dangle it in front of the local Honda :) Who knows, maybe they'll bite and match?

not very many dealers will be able or even try to match their prices, but always worth a shot!

Nothing wrong with doing that, but I personally don't agree with it. I bought my bike from OTD, even though they were about 20 miles further from my local dealer. If everyone used OTD as leverage against their local dealer, they would not survive in business. Would my local dealer have met or slightly beat their price - probably. I like how OTD runs their business and wanted to support them.
