Hi all,

Well I have started to look at getting myself the 1800 :grinner:

I love my 1500, and from all I have read it is all this and more. I have put off taking an 1800 for atest ride so far, as I know this will be the final straw for my savings.

Tthe best way looks to purchase one from you guys over the pond. Uk prices are just out of the question, I have seen them advertised in the USA for $16,100 (2005 model) a huge reduction on prices here. (unless anyone knows better) What about European prices? If I was to purchase one anywhere in Europe, I could at least ride it back.... does anyone know of any good dealers/deals?

Have any of you guys actually done this? If so who did you use?

The additional prices are also a little confusing, as the ones here appear to be out of date. Does anyone know the FULL amount that would have to be added to the bike for transportation, import duty, tax, etc, etc....

I can only get one, if I can do it for the right money....... it is hard enough convincing a non biking wife as it is.

I have relatives in the states that will help with anything if need be (apart from payment :p )

I am interested to hear the best deals you guys know of, if any?

A lot of UK guys are coming over to Ireland and buying Wings. The +50% strength of the UK pound makes all the difference.

Thanks for the reply Eamonn1200


I am not sure what the prices are in Ireland. I fear they will still be a whole lot more than the USA or Canada. I would appreciate any links to sites/dealers that you know are doing a deal.

I haven't even seen a decent second hand one here (rip off Britain), for the price of a new one in the USA.

This seems to me a very sensible discussion. I am not in the market for a bike, but it would be excellent for all members to have access to the best priced bikes. There must be quite a few Brits who might be tempted, save for the fact that as Mark1247 points out, we are Rip Off Britain, and the prices are incredible.
