Where to buy new Yamaha XT660 Tenere internationally

I'm looking to buy a new XT660Z Tenere, anywhere from in the UK to in Hong Kong. Does anyone know if there is savings to be made by buying from a particular country, and indeed which countries the Tenere is available to buy in?

Cheers all

Denmark has been a good place in the past to buy as the VAT levels are so high that the base price tends to be lower than elsewhere.

However... my mate just bought a brand new Tenere from a UK dealer for £4,800.

Peter & Tim - thanks alot guys, i've been checking motorcycle trading websites around the world, so knowing that info has saved me alot of time, cheers.

@Tim - 4800 sterling sounds fantastic, do you know which dealer that was from? When I'm in UK am London based, but would not be a problem to travel.

Someone in the south east who needed to shift a bike.

Best thing is to phone round the Yamaha dealers in the UK and find out what they have in stock and ask for their best price. There seems to be a load of bikes built in 2008 and 2009 that are still unregistered. You would, of course, still get a full two year warranty.

Once you get a list of those who seem to be willing to deal, play one off against the other.

I've checked with my friend and the bike was from John W Groombridge Motorcycles. Their website (www jwg.co.uk) appears to be down at the moment, address is Heathfield, East Sussex, TN21 0SP.

I got the price wrong, it was £4900.
