Honda Motorcycle dealers.

How old are you anyway? Funny you haven't figured this out by now. It's the same all over the world, not just Thailand. The sales <removed> will tell any lie they can think of to extract as much money as possible from your pocket.

 

Not just vehicle sales, everything you buy has the same problem.

Sales scum? It's called doing business. Astute shoppers shop around. If you get bitten its your own fault!

Some 4 years ago my sister-in-law went to a motorcycle dealer to enquire about a new scooter. She was giver a brochure and a price and informed of a 4 week wait. After enquiring at several dealers, she went back to the first. I took her there and went in with her, the price jumped by 8,00 baht.

How many years spent in Thailand did you say?
 

Dealership have different prices world wide with different packages, delivery cost etc. You should know that by now, and not use terms like corruption when its business. If you paid them 10k to get my bike who was supposed to have my bike delivered tomorrow, then you might call it corruption.

So the price of a bike actually for sale is

6KB  [$170]  more than the same one that does not exist.?

how does that old joke go...? customer at fruit and veg stall...

customer- How much are your potatoes?

seller- 50 pence a pound sir.

customer- what? that's extortionate. the other guy said 20 pence a pound and he's sold out...

seller- well sir, when we've sold out, we'll do them for 18 pence a pound, OK?

this is nothing new.

when i was looking for a new pickup, one dealer had exactly the one i wanted, spec, colour etc, except it was his demo on red plates with 800 km on the clock. price was a few MORE kbaht than a brand new one ordered for delivery on a lead time of 3 months. why? because you can have it now....

dealers like to keep a few on the forecourt for show maybe, then they have to wait a few months to replace it?

like i said, nothing new going on.

i didn't want to wait....

I've seen it reported a few times that Hondas are going for more than MRSP, that doesn't explain why one garage is not, so probably demand and supply, go with the cheaper price and wait

We brought a new Wave 125 two colour ,mag wheels,that was  60k baht also, that was 4-5 months ago,the last one we brought was 4 years ago that was 50k baht.

I was surprised at the price ,this was the third Wave we have brought from this shop ,so we know them,.and they are normaly the cheapest in the area,they did say they were a shortage of Waves .

And we have 3-4 Honda dealers in the area ,I did not check all of them, but one other did say 60k .

It used to be shops do not like cash sales ,they lose out on they cut of the HP agreement ,as the average HP agreement here in Thailand  runs at 30% interest ,a few of these will add up,so they could ? up the cash price, so they make a bit more.

I enquired about a new Click 160 in Pattaya. They wanted 5,000 above MRP. Things must have changed as i bought the tgf a Click 150i a year ago and even got a small discount against MRP. I am waiting for the new ADV 160 but hate to think what the premium and wait might be on that.
