I put a deposit on a 2008 NRS and it will be here late Sept. I was offered a 2007 for $15200 but declined. I am getting the 08 for $16500. They still have the 07 and I am wondering if I should make a lower offer for it. What would you pay for a 07? I was thinking an offer of $14000, if they bite great, if not, I will wait. What is the highest you would go for the 07? They had an 06 A leftover last year at this time for that price. thanks

I just offered my dealer $15k for a 07 DX and they did not take it. If I could get a 08 DX for $16.5k I would snap that one up. Comes with the big motor stock. I don't believe you can big bore it for that much, but maybe I am wrong.

This is just my opinion as a person actively looking for the right DX deal. Good luck!

If you decide on the 08 let me know what dealer it is located at. I am in the market and located in central N.J.

Thanks

Remember that the MSRP maybe 16.5k then you have to add freight and dealer prep charges. That could bring it up to 18k easy.

Oh yes it will. I'm at $18,800 for a Vivid Black with Pewter stripes, ABS and the security system. Give me that 1250 any day.

my extended warranty was another 1200 bucks including tires. Hahaha...over 20k yet? I think all said and done my 08 DX was 19,700.

I hear they don't even offer ABS yet. They will be in the phase 2 run of bikes. Never know...

I've got ABS on my VRSCDX...Vivid Black and Pewter. So they're available in phase 1.

someone posted that a dealer in Vegas had several 07 DX's... for $15,500 with $1,000 in accessories.....that'd be worth a one way ticket to Vegas in my book....

I was in NC running the Tail of the Dragon on a 2002 VTX that I paid $5500 for 2 years and 8000 miles ago, when I stopped in at Ghost Town Harley to duck the rain. He said he couldn't give the V-RODs away and took $8770 plus my bike out the door for a 2007 VRSCAW. I'm guessing I paid something in the 13s for it without the trade.

I paid 15,515 for my DX in May and got 1500 worth of accessories at 50% off. Depends what ya want i guess....if ya want the 1250 engine, id wait. if you want to be in a buyers position....hold off a tad......let the 08's come in and the 07's they will deal more on.

The '08 DX is only $200 more MSRP. But the '08 has a little more HP. 5 more ft lbs of torque at 7000rpm. 11:5:1 compression ratio as the '07 has an 11:3:1 compression ratio. They have a slipper clutch on it that only needs 11 lbs to move the lever. And if you want to spend the extra money, the '08 can have ABS added on at the factory when you order. Unlike the '07, you can get orange or pewter racing stripes instead of just the vivid or denim black.

I have my eyes set on the '08 with pewter stripes, ABS, and windshield. After taxes and delivery charge, it will cost me a little under 20K. The dealership near my place doesn't mark up the cost of the bike. They go by MSRP unless they need to get rid of older models then they mark the price down a little bit. It seems like your dealer is doing the same.

Hope this helps.

i have seen an 07 at a dealer for $15900 and you get $500 store merchandise credit- deal or no deal?
Deal. Assuming they don't throw on useless "delivery charges" or limit your store credit to the day-glo green and pink t-shirts and leathers.
