Don't pretend that you wouldn't have the stock exhaust stripped off at the dealer before you rode home.

I like the black but that martini olive green looks pretty cool too, even better if the wheels were powdercoated black...  8)

U mean to tell me honda increased the fuel capacity from 4.9 to 5gal?? Wow, good job Honda, that ought to get ya another mile or two! I don't understand manufacturers thinking when they have these tiny ass gas tanks?? I think the concours should have a larger tank than 5.8 gal, but it's not bad. The one thing I do like about Hondas ST1300, is its 7.7 gal tank, good for around 300 miles.

2010 new priced at $11,500 in New Hampshire ++ out the door is still under $12,000. Looked pretty cheap.

The one local to me with only 30 miles on it (put on it by me...  ;D ) I can get for $10.5 OTD, it's very tempting...  :-\

Just think of how much farkle transition it would take.  That would keep you busy for a couple weeks.

I found a new 2010 in Tennessee (Abernathy Cycle, Union City) that was priced at $ 9,540 and no additional fees.  I verified this talking to a salesman over the phone.  The lowest price I could find, but it was 700 miles away. Either way it would have cost me at least $ 500 to get it.   They only had one left, and it is sold now.

The best price in my area is $ 10,850 right now without any other fees (except tax, tag and title).

My local Honda shop still has "THE" VFR1200. I say "THE" since its the same oen that hit the floor in early 2010.  You can see wear marks on the tank from people sitting on it. Price started at 17,500 and keeps falling.  I like the bike and have no idea why it wont sell.  Maybe it looks too much like their cbr 250?

I remember when the first 2010s got on showroom floors and most dealers would not budge from the MSRP price.  Heck, just two short months ago, a local dealer  in Daytona Beach tired to sell me a 2010 demo bike for $ 14,500, insisting what a great deal this was.
