Hi Mojo, what were the extra costs with the bike, registration, tax etc? And how long does it take to get title before you can set off out of state? I'm hiring from AZride this year but would like to buy for next year and leave it with family when I'm not there. I hope everything goes smoothly. Have fun.

Bike costs & Title.

Hi Doc,

I bought a new KLR650 & managed to get an out the door price of $5081. I found a straight talking dealer with no nonsense & quite straight up so went with him even though he was out in Apache Junction (about 20 miles)

The breakdown of costs were:
Bike $4436
Tax $371
License Fee $125
Documentation Fee $150
The title will take 20 - 30 days to arrive at the registered address. I have a temporary tittle & plate which is fine to travel all over the US but I cannot take the bike out of the US till it arrives. Not an issue with me as I plan on touring the US for a few months before I head south.

When are you planning on getting over here to Phoenix & what bike are you planning on buying? Hope this info helps & if you need anymore info regarding insurance or accesories then please PM me.

Cheers Mojo
