Considering a leftover 2018, what should I expect to pay for dealer fees, setup?

The fees will usually be made up of some combination of freight, assembly/set-up, and the ubiquitous 'dealer-fee'. It's really hard to say what you will pay in fees because...

Some dealers will have a low price on the bike and then high fees (so their advertised price is low in the print/internet advertisement). Others will have a higher bike price and no or very low fees. So you could end up paying more for a bike with a lower advertised price at the end of the day vs a dealer with a higher advertised price. Its best to get the Out-The-Door price, which includes all fees, taxes, tag/title, etc. It's the whole-ball-of-wax price.

Once you have the OTD price, then you can negotiate from there and/or compare with other dealers.

But to try and answer your original question, dealer fees can be anywhere from 0 to hundreds. Setup range could be the same...

Having bought a handful of new bikes I’d say the only thing that matters is bottom line. The dealer may be able to take thousands off MSRP and collect a lot for freight and setup, or they may charge nothing for freight and setup and ask close to MSRP.

Don’t negotiate minutia, negotiate the final price.
