The conversion gives you an idea of the US price, but it isn't totally correct. They don't just convert the price. Good to find as a ballpark though.
Exactly Dex, because shipping, tariffs, taxes and other import fees vary between countries, the best way to get from the known cost of a given model in one country to the unknown cost of that same model in another country, is to compare known prices of other models in both countries and use the percentage difference to calculate the unknown price.
seem to be FullThrottle's source. I don't see how they came to the idea that Honda might bring the base CRF-AT to the U.S.under $10,000 (especially if the U.S. base model has ABS and TC). However, using the total cost of five bikes in Australia shown in the article ($105,080 AUD) and dividing it into the U.S. MSRP total for the same models ($77,300 USD) we find that U.S. dollar prices for those bikes average 73.4% of AU dollar prices. So I simply took 73.4% to the Australia price to get an estimated U.S. price.
(Ideally, you would use only Honda models and compare their AUS and U.S. prices, but this is a quick and dirty estimate. "Close enough for government work", as we used to say.}
Here's the way it looks to me (wasn't able to make a chart):
Base - no ABS PRICE IN AUS $15,500, EST PRICE IN U.S. $11,400
Base with ABS/TC PRICE IN AUS $17,000 EST PRICE IN U.S.$12,500
DCT with ABS/TC PRICE IN AUS $18,000 EST PRICE IN U.S. $13,250
If that's the way is shakes out, and my local Honda dealer will participate in the Costco discount program, I can live with that.
