“Affordable” motorcycles

I was reading a list of ’10 new affordable bikes’ on some website, and half of them started at or above 10 grand.

Seriously, what are you people thinking? Most any dealer is going to take $1,000 onto msrp for DH and Setup, so even an ostensible $9k bike is ~$10 to $11k after sales tax. How are those the affordable bikes? Affordable motorcycles are ~$5k, all in.
