    It's a way to clear slow moving stock without them having to be on your Dealers showroom raising brand residual values as an issue.

    Spoke to a Norton Rep at the show. He stated that Colchester had been dealer albeit for a very short time and were now no longer dealers. They therefore have stock bikes to sell and after that there will be no further discounted ones.

    Yep. SMe goes for motorcycles direct in Watford. Part of the same group I believe.

    Bargains to be had at Mirus55/MotoCorsa, Gillingham showroom. They used to be dealers but are no longer listed. They have three Mk11 Sport models which they were inviting offers on when I was last down there.

    Is that really a bargain? 13,600 British Pounds is roughly 19,350 US. I paid 17,900 US for my Sport. The CR I believe was a grand more. Maybe 2. Another grand for the biposto.

    Take 20% off for VAT i.e. sales tax before comparing.

    20%? Wow. With the pipes and 8.5% sales tax, 22,800 out the door.

    What is going to happen if they haven’t been sold by jan 2019, I read they can only be sold as euro 3 spec for 2 years(and that is all the discounted ones) and this is up jan next yr,after that only Euro 4 Bike’s can be sold, I’m hoping they sell quick and stop devaluing our bikes

    Most vehicle dealers would register the cars/bikes and then sell them on as low mileage/demo's etc.
