    how can it be "normally" 600$ when it has been selling for 200$ or less since April?

    ^ "Retail" doesn't mean "normally", it means the MSRP which for any bike short of exotics is significantly higher than its average selling price.

    Because retailers are trying to deceive you. Deceptive advertising helps them sell more product.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Suggested_retail_price

    "Suggested prices can also be manipulated to be unreasonably high, allowing retailers to use deceptive advertising by showing the excessive price and then their actual selling price, implying to customers that they are getting a bargain. Game shows have long made use of suggested retail prices both as a game element, in which the contestant must determine the retail price of an item, or in valuing their prizes."

    In some respect, Ben's Bargains is acting as a confederate for retailers by advertising their inflated retail prices when they know it is not reflective of the real market price. A better bargain gauge would be an accurate recent prices such as found in the price history...
