There is some good price news on the Ovation2. The last one Flying reviewed, a 2000 model, was well-equipped and priced at $428,800. The price of a 2005 Ovation2 GX is $418,150. The option list is short, too. A Stormscope is available but the XM WX weather downlink system will include lightning information. A Skywatch would be nice and is $16,950. A TKS ice protection system, approved for flight in icing conditions, is $39,900, which is substantially less than it has been in the past. Bose headsets are $990 each, but the hot-wire plug for them is standard. An oxygen system is $7,500 and air conditioning $26,900. Most pilots would eschew some or most of those options to keep the price and weight of the airplane down because the airplane is a pretty complete package as it is equipped.
