When I was moving from the Scout to the Springfield DH in December 2017 my local independent multi-brand dealer just sat on his hands and would not do a deal at all. I spoke with Sydney and they started off the same. I said I may as well stick with my local bloke, but if they wanted to move a bike off the floor by the end of the year I'm happy to talk. A week later they started calling me and offered a reduced price, which I signed for after Christmas and rode away on New Year's Eve.

My local dealer seems to offer DarkHorse models for everything and almost no other colours at all on their website.
Maybe they can still get other colours.

Hi Wotman
Welcome to the forum.
To add to the discussion of importing bikes. There is a problem to do with year of manufacture, I am not sure if the cut off year but it is difficult to licence an imported vehicle beyond a particular year. It seems that this is aimed at protecting local retailers. The only way around this is to have owned it as a resident in the country of origin (1 year??) or that it is substantially different from what is available in Australia. I think the rules around this are pretty tough. There was a suggestion of some changes to vehicle import laws in this but I am not sure if that happened.
I agree it will be tuff. I think it will be to difficult and i dont believe the savings will be worth it.
