    Brand New left over models???

    I've been looking to buy a NEW motorcycle (again) for commuting to work on. Was not entirely sold on the NC700X because of the horsepower numbers, but have came to my senses and now realize this machine is perfect for the job. I always buy new, but look for leftovers because you can find real bargains out there. I live in upstate New York and here is what I found:

    Brand New 2014 Honda NC700X $4596.00 OTD
    Brand New 2015 Honda NC700X $5396.00 OTD

    If you knew me, then you would know I went with the 2014 model. The dealer (in Pennsylvania) told me he had Six 2014 units still in crates. That is unbelievable!!!

    I picked mine up January 12th, 2018. By the way, the odometer read 0 miles. (I love that)
    Price sells. My new bike may be four years old, but I know it was worth every penny. lol

    Good for you! I'm glad you got the deal you were looking for.

    If more people came to their senses, there wouldn't be any leftover NC700Xs in crates.

    I do believe that dealers can purchase bikes such as these from other dealers. Also sometimes are leftover bikes sitting at Honda's warehouses in Torrance, CA.

    Most dealers can inquiry the dealer network to do a trace on finding a specific year and model within the entire US. Some dealers try to charge a premium for doing this, so be careful and mindful of this.

    I just got a 16 for the price you have up there for the 15. I'm super happy.

    It was just delivered this Saturday.

    And all this is before the 2018’s are out...........so the price on “left overs” will continue to drop and the used market price will also be effected.

    kawboy, IMO, that's a very good price!

    I see it this way - there's always someone who will pay more, always someone who will find it for less. Price shouldn't matter if 1) you can afford it and, 2) You want it!

    I know some people like to sugar-coat everything always trying to do someone else one-up. Me, I could care less so as long as I love it!

    Good luck. They are really good motorcycles.

    Torrance is the corporate headquarters and they do have a small parts warehouse on the grounds but the closest "unit warehouse" for crated units is in Ontario, about 40-miles east. There are other unit warehouses for each region of the country.

    Thanks! I'll have to let my dealer know. He couldn't find me ANY 2016's last June when I was ready to buy; kept calling other dealers, so I had to travel 40 miles away, instead of the 1 block distance away from my work.

    Even if they did have leftovers sitting at Corporate Headquarters in Torrance, they don't do direct sales to customers because of the dealer sales agreement.
