Fed up with walking into the bike showroom and
1. being ignored by the salesgirls sitting behind the desk?
2. not finding any prices attached to the bikes?
Here's a good source of up to date prices

Waste of time. A few of the links are dead. Try to click on BMW!

total time waste, there are prices and links in other places which works...

Total waste of time, and that two times?
What about BMW, what is so interesting about BMW, and why only BMW?
And where to find prices and links that work in other places?
If you declare a suggestion as a waste of time, please be so kind to offer valid choice(s)

I am not allowed due to Thai Visa rules to post any of the places you find the information you seek. So sorry but I cannot help, but I am sure many others can.

Sorry that I bothered
I was looking at buying a small Honda/Yamaha/Susuki and so far the lists on this site have been very helpful
For example Honda,
All the models and all the prices.
Try and find out any information from the Honda site itself and you are faced with a barrage of flash put together by a bunch of schoolkids on ya ba.
I guess the "real deal" will remain secret down the "secret soi", the location of which is presumably also a secret.

It is not to Motorcycle Thailand to not share prices, Motorcycle Thailand follows the marketing of the motorcycle manufacturers. BMW stopped publishing retail prices and we followed, we nothing more then a tool...
If you visit http://www.bmw.co.th/th/en/ and select "Motorrad" from the menu you will also see that the Official BMW Retail PRICE-LIST will not work... (Motorcycle Thailand provides a service)
Overall, sure Motorcycle Thailand, will not keep all motorcycle enthusiastic happy... I not believe any single source will.... we with our limitations try to do our best...

You are quite right the price list on bmw website don't work, here on my linux netbook with firefox , opera and on windoz also on firefox & chrome...but i swear i got it open today with ie6(even showing the finance options) ....so they (bmw) have some problem at their website...anyhow, BMW is a nice Bike but their website isn't even a quarter as good as their bikes...i hope they follow up with their shortcomings. As for the price list on motorcycle thailand it is the only "all-in one" Pricelist that i am aware of. So it is convenient. Hope it is kept up-to-date and it is good resource for those who are looking to buy bikes here .
Could send you a printed out/scanned bmw pricelist if you want.
hope that helps,

Officially, we received a email.. That BMW preferred to to disclose retail prices, Motorcycle Thailand followed instructions... as simple as it is... Motorcycle Thailand keeps all prices up-to-date on a weekly base... or if we receive a special price update..
Sure, again the system is not absolute perfect.... but show anything better... or give suggestions of improvement (Currently we listen mainly to manufacturers) and user info would be useful...

Guess you're wrong there, funnyboy... I was aiming for a completely different site, but since your so funny and know it all I don't need to explain has nothing to do with any secret or what have we. I have a ban for posting links, that's all... So I cannot post any links.
Great that someone are allowed to post them and promote Richards website without breaking any rules, nice one.
