Grant is right; Aussie and New Zealand are about the cheapest places I have found to buy those sort of bikes new, with NZ usually a little cheaper as we have no import taxes. Also we don't have any special compliance regulations so there are often bikes here that are found in very few countries, if they need to shift old stock of a slow selling model from somewhere else. However, then you have the cost of freighting OUT of NZ!
