    Price

    Does anybody know the price of a 08 Scalpel 2 in the US ?

    I live in Quebec, so I'm looking to take my car and go buy it in the US because of the prici difference if it is a big one.

    Thanks guys,

    Dji

    Scalpel Team REP $6,499.99
    Scalpel 1 BLU $5,999.99
    Scalpel 2 BBQ $3,999.99
    Scalpel 3 RAW $3,299.99
    Scalpel 4 BBQ2, RED2 $2,499.99

    All prices are MSRP. Usually there is a little wiggle room if the bike shop already has them on the floor.

    How does that compare with our MSRP in Quebec? If you go buy it in the US, you should have a ride on it down there, the customs at the border may ask more questions if the bike is sparkling clean and obviously unridden.

    The US prices are cheeper than the CAD prices. For example, the Scalpel Team is 7200$ CAD vs 6500$ US and the Scalpel 2 is 4400$ CAD vs 4000$. And remember that you guys in the US does not have to pay 13.85% tax on your product; so a Scalpel Team comes to 8200$ CAD and the Scalpel 2 comes to 5010$ CAD, so if you're not sponsored (and even when you are, it comes equal), it's really worthed to go down and buy it in the US (and of course ride it for the weekend).

    And there is also the fact that since about 3 weeks, our dollar is higher than the US dollar.

    What about the taxes when coming back to Quebec with the bike?

    I heard that if you take your bike out of Canada you have to register with border services, otherwise when coming back they could charge you taxes.

    This never hapenned to me. I went to NH this summer and to VT & NH last summer with my bikes, and they never registered them at borders. I think this is a false rumor.

    Like Dan Gerous said (and I approved), you only have to ride the bike for the weekend and then come back to Quebec, and they won't know or notice that you bought the bike in the US. A lot of people in Qc does that.
