that was'nt the question. the CX is 123 and $19995 MSRP I can get a 08 DX rated at 125 for $16675. Looks like I will have to go black.

yeh 2 hp would make my mind up too, i bought the cx my fist rod for its kick ass drag bike theme, the 1250 se motor was a bonus i would not have cared if it had 100hp, buy the bike that grabs your attention there is a wealth of information on this forum to get as much hp as you want.

H-D never published numbers for the X on HP, torque was published as 86ftlbs at 7000 RPM... The HP on the X is more than 125, due to the tune vs the 2008...

The price difference is in the limited edition of 1400 and the paint...

So you think all things being =. a stock 07 CX would walk away from a stock 08 DX?
There is no such thing as one stock V-Rod "walking" away from the other. They are so close to equal that it comes down to rider and mods. IMO

CX cost more $$ because of chrome and its limited edition status. The CX and DX models look different and have different ergonomics. Buy what you like, not based on percieved minute performance differences.

The CX may have a slight edge, it would depend on the rider... Like Steppenwolf said it is down to style and ergonomics... However you will not see yourself coming and going with the X, I see DXs all the time here in Miami, other than mine have not seen another X on the road...

Same here in Nashville, There is another, SuperBud has one and I hear a dealer in the area has another. But there won't be many, not like the DX.

Buy what you like.
They are completely different bikes in looks, ride, and ergo. I didn't pay 3k and fuss over 2 hp (and Im willing to say that the other 1400 X'ers didn't either). I bought it for what it looks like. 2 hp is realistically not much unless you are going to race it and that is neglegable.

488 - Just buy what you like, make it yours via :broke: and make it look like you want it to look...oh and then ride it....alot.

That is not the HP rating of the X, it is more like 128 and with a pipe, a/c and tune should be around 138...

I don't mean to upset anyone here, but I found a dealer this week that sold me #906 for $16,999. Before you decide to spend a few dollars less for a 2008 non-CX, check Cycle Trader Online. You may find a great deal to get what you really want. Just my .02.

my dealer is holding strong at 22275 OTD, so I am still waiting, if it does not drop by the time the 08's arrive, I guess I will buy a DX.

What was the price out the door, that is what counts...?

I don't have an OTD yet because I am getting some accessories added before it is shipped to Texas. However, they are selling the bike for $16,999 with no additional fees for set-up, etc... A dealer in Paris, TX just sold one a few days ago for $17,999. Keep looking, if it is a CX you really want.
