In the Mich Auto & RV a dealer is selling these MACH Z's $8,000 non ES and $8,750 w/ES. I can't beleive how much the price has dropped on thes sleds. I wonder what's up with that? Just talked to them they only have the ES model left now. I'm not advertising here, I'm just wondering why so cheap? I expected them to go to about $9,000 the lowest. The poor weather I'm sure is playing a role in this. Wonder how this will effect the snow check prices on the 06's?

It's simple, dealers have to pay "rent" on the sleds that they have in stock, even over the summer months. Statistically, if the sled doesn't sell very quickly, they will have to pay the "rent" on it until next season, so it makes more sense to sell it now than hang onto it over the summer.

Works the same way for car dealers. That's why you sometimes see huge discounts on certain models.

I doubt it. Back when I had a couple friends that worked at a dealer, holding on to a new $6500 sled over the summer would cost them close to $1000. That was back in 1998, so I would imagine that it's more nowadays.

If they can move that Mach Z for $8,000 in the next couple weeks, I would imagine they will make more $$$ in the end versus selling it in the fall as a "leftover" for $10k, if they can even get it then.

That's why if you want to buy a sled, starting about now until the end of February is a pretty good time to buy if you want to get it for the best price.

Call him up and try to actually buy one. I bet they either don't have them or that is a teaser price with no freight, setup or other fees. I would be curious to see the total out-the-door price. Post the number. I will call.

I don't beleive you will see many adds by dealers which are OTD prices. When you go to dealership, most times, the price tag on the sleds do not include anything. I'll PM you the no. Like I said I'm not advertising here. Just shocked to see a $2,500 price drop in just a short time.

I bought a Mach Z on Friday for $7,999 plus $411 prep/freight, tax and registration which brought it to just short of $9,000. I opted for the 4-year extended warranty from SkiDoo for $949. When I left the dealership on Friday they still had one Mach Z left (the electric start model) for $750 more. I won't post the dealer's telephone #, but the dealer was Tom's Cylce Inc. in St. Johns Michigan. about 20 north of Lansing.
