Kawasaki Kash and Costco Pricing

Hello everyone, newbie here, I am looking to buy a new Ninja 1000 and have a question:

How does the Kawasaki Kash work? It looks like if you go ride their motorcycle at an event you get $250 in Kawasaki Kash. If I go to two events, can I get a second $250 in Kawasaki Kash?

And, can the Kawasaki Kash be used with the Costco discount program?

Thank you,

Nucleus

Sounds like a question to ask your specific dealership. Some allow discount stacking, some are one or the other.

What I really want to know is, what percentage of the Kawa Kash is covered by Kawasaki vs. the dealer?

Kawasaki reimburses the dealer.

Don't mention the Kash voucher until it's time to make payment. Negotiate the best deal beforehand, get the sales contract written. If they make a fuss about the voucher (mine did) remind them that Kawasaki will redeem it.

Best advice here. Make your deal, then present Kawasaki Kash, They WILL make a fuss, as if it's eating into their profits but what's it's really doing is dangling another profit item in front of them.

If they refuse to give you that money off after the deal is made, get ready to walk out and threaten to report them to Kawasaki headquarters. Then they WILL give you that money off.

Every dealer is dirty. You just need to know how to deal with them.

Well, only one Kawa Kash cert per motorcycle purchase. I just got mine on Saturday. I just need to sell my Katana, and then I'm going to have Costco find me a 2019 Ninja 1000.

I bought my 2015 Ninja 1000 with the Costco program. I planned to do the same thing when I bought my 2018 Ninja 400. I stopped in and saw the same salesman that I got my 1000 with and told him I was going to go with Costco again. He said, don't bother, and without any haggling he gave me a price quite a bit better than my Costco price. I signed right then and there.

But, all in all the Costco Price isn't bad, and the process in smooth. Good luck!

My purchase got delayed, trying again.

The salesman at the dealer is a piece of work.

He told me: "We waive freight and set-up fees for Costco members"

Then shows me a price with $790 for "freight and setup"

Me: "I thought you said those fees were waived?"

Him: "I am not charging you those fees"

Me: (I check the math) "So if you are not charging me for freight and setup, then the price should be $790 less."

Him: "No, that is the price."

Me: "But you said those fees are waived!?"

Him: "I'm not charging you those fees"

Me: "WTF!?!"

He will probably say he took that price off upfront and did not show it, they are good at giving you what you did not get. Unless he showed you a detailed bill before you said I do, it will be hard to prove it.
