Quite the contrary. I was just talking to my friend that works at my local dealership. They're selling bikes like crazy. The same dealer that wouldn't come down on JPWendt's dad's bike $400 and let him walk. Maybe its regional, but right now, the haggling is slim.
6 months from now would be May. Season is starting. Not seeing it being better then. I'd suggest december through january. End of february (First full month in March) is Daytona bike week. They have a huge sales spurt then too.
Some guys have had some good luck though. Things like warranty or store credit for add-ons.
