    As you have probably seen...elsewhere, IMC has jacked the price on the FTR models by $500 across the board, and by $1000 on the Race Replica. To counter the hike on the RR, you do get the Akrapovic low mount exhaust (with the OE catcon) as standard.

    Feel free to opine &/or rant. I'm going to go stew...

    Wiseguys.

    Well, there was an announced price increase late last year on existing models for he 2019 model year. The price of the FTR was set and published at the time of its unveiling. On top of that increase, they have increased the price of the TS111 bikes as much as $800-1000, the Scout variants, I don't know, and then this jack of the FTR.

    Price increase must be hurting ... you can only afford one sneaker now? Hope the family is getting fed.

    Actually it's mostly caused by the Steel Tarrif imposed by Trump. Many motorcycle manufacturers said they would have to pass their cost from the Tarrif on to customers

    Think they should have stuck to their guns on pricing, is not good for PR on their part ..

    I would think "American" made bikes would be buying "American" made steel.

    I would guess my 2018 Chieftain and all our used bikes are getting help with this.

    Sadly, because the industry is now protected, it's raised its prices.
