I just bought a 2012 RGC and paid MSRP BUT the ABS/security package fee was waived along with the freight charge. I also received a $1000 in store credit and 15% off everything on day of purchase. I felt as though I got a good deal. Good luck.

This made the decision for me. I ended up buying overseas because no one stateside could match the interest rate. I got 2.8 overseas and in the end spent less than I would even with a used bike. Look less at cash off or incentives and more at who will give you the lowest interest rate even if its not the dealer. Harley's Eagle credit doesn't seem competitive.

Once you get past the B.S. conversation from the Salesperson to you, you need to tell him/her "I'm here to buy a bike, but are you ready to sell a bike?

In my own personal experience, I went one weekend to my local dealer(30 miles away) talked to them and they didn't give me the numbers I wanted to see so I left cordially. I got a follow up call on Monday(that's when they where open on Mondays.) I told him I was checking with 3 other dealers and I would get back with them later if they were interested in making a deal. One other dealer about 125 miles from house was ready to make the deal over the phone, so I called my local dealer and told him thanks for his time but I was about to make the deal and he said "Give me 15 minutes" He called me back in 10, said "we'll give it to you for $2500 below MSRP, and take off the cost of the ABS/Security option and they gave me $8400.00 on my trade in( I still owed $4k). All in all I thought it was a good deal.

Oh, and they gave me $300 in store credit. Wife bought a Jacket and we were done.

Joe, in Kali do you pay the sales tax to the dealer or, to the DMV?

Thanks

Although I don't feel like I got much of a deal, I don't think I got ripped off either.
Same thing as mine when I got it back in September.

ophir, you got lots of good suggestions as well as a few specific deal details. It really comes down to your negotiating skills and how badly the dealership wants to deal.
Don't just expect to get the same deal someone else got without a little work.

Do your homework so that when you go to the dealership you know what you want (model, color, options, etc.). You also need to have a good idea of what you are willing to spend to get it.
If you will be financing the purchase talk to your bank/credit union so that you can get pre-approved. This is more negotiating leverage.
If you can pay cash, you can usually make a good deal by financing thru the dealership and then paying it off 30 days later. These days the dealerships are encouraged to finance internally and get penalized if they don't. Again, leverage.

Bottom line: knowledge is power.

Default Published deal in Washington

The dealer I am working with, Sound Harley, has posters at the entrance stating that they do not charge freight or setup; that can save on the order of a grand. We are also negotiating the price of the bike, but I am being confidential about the actual negotiated price, but they have stated that they are an MSRP dealer.. I believe 15% off accessories bought at time of purchase is pretty standard; some dealers go 20% but I would wager they make the 5% difference up elsewhere. All a numbers game, it is really the out the door price all included that matters, and I would wager that will be a similar lowest negotiable number for most dealers, they all just get there by a few different means like shipping, tax/license, accessory cost etc..
