NOW is the time to buy a new CT in Australia
on: April 08, 2013, 01:26:21 AM
As of last Friday, and until the end of May, Honda Australia is offering dealers a $5000 "run-out" rebate on Crosstourers (and even more on new 2010-plated ST1300A's ; man they're cheap !!).

My dealer this morning confirmed my order for a new red CT at the RRP of $14.990 + ORC, or $16,200 ride-away.   Bargain !!!  :152:

I can't believe the CT is due for an update only 12 months or so after being released ; I reckon it's more likely sales have been so slow (my large provincial dealer has had a demo for 12 months and has yet to sell one ...) that Honda may be going to delete the CT from their lineup. I have been wrong before, tho'.  :164:

Now is the time to buy one !

Delivery should be later this week, from Blacklock's in Albury (although I live in Melbourne).

The main dealer in Melbourne (city) knew nothing about the rebate on Saturday morning, so I cancelled my order with them and went elsewhere  :002:

That explains why I picked up a demo for $14990 last week.  Oh well, could have had a new one.   :006:

Can't see any details on the Honda website though.   :187:

Congratulations, enjoy.   :001:
