    there is a pretty big check list..
    and then in addition there is a bit of assembly required, such as the handlebar adjustment piece... I forget the other items...

    Regardless they charge too much for too little. Same deal with a near car, just another way to make money.

    they have to cover the expenses of small things, like chips and gouges or outright forklift destruction of a unit

    hence dealer prep is like health insurance, costs are spread among those who can pay ( you) to those who do not want to pay ( in this case the dealer)

    prep is always a negotiating point. I make sure the dealer knows that I know he's marking up a low level employee like 5000%

    next time, during price negotiations try crossing out their number and writing in something about half. Watch what happens.
