The one "internet quote" I got was $4100 out the door which IMO seemed insane considering the $3199 list. Seems like some folks are getting them now for $35-3800 OTD. I'd prefer to buy used from someone who only put a couple hundred miles on one.

I like the idea that the bike is compact and at ~250 lbs easy to deal with. Will make it easier to throw in the shed and pile stuff around it.
