I went into the local dealership here on Long Island and asked the sales manager about 08 VROD DX's and he basically told me they don't have any.

I asked if they are shipping yet, he said yes they already had one, it sold in one day and if I want one they are going for $19,000. I was stunned, and responded thats like $3,000 over sticker to which he responded, "Hey, I'm only getting 4 this year, what do you want me to do, give them away?" The guy was so agressive when he was saying it I though I was about to get into a bar fight. :chair: Unbelievable!:banghead:

Has anybody closed a deal on an 08 DX recently that is willing to talk about price?:D

I sure wouldn't pay more than MSRP.. Which depending on the options is around $17,000.. I'm not into paying a premium for a bike.. JMO.

Hello everyone, I have been lurking here for awhile but this is my first post. I'm also interested in buying an '08 DX. I got a quote here in California of $19,281 out the door. Also included was the first 3 services plus a $100 bill from bringing in a postcard they sent me. They have had a couple in, and another shipping on next Tuesday.

That is about right for California with tax and license. Paid this earlier this year on my 07 DX.

Btw, there is an 08DX in OCHD at MSRP with pewter stripes.

I bought one in California on the 17th of August. Sticker was $17.4k or so, otd was $20.9 which included a 6 year extended warrentee and local taxes of course. Is $19k asking price or otd? If it is otd I'd say go for it.

here in WF texas they quoted me 17750 ish for an 08DX vivid w/ orange stripes with abs and security and 20,500 OTD.

i hate waiting 3 weeks to custom order it (not making the order until october 15th) then another 3 months to get the bike in though...

First service costs around 250 at my local so cal dealer. I do them myself now at a cost of $50 or so for filter and oil. You should get the first one there, but not much value in the other two unless you don't do your own.

You will pay more in California due to our license cost and a tire fee. Also, you will likely pay $300 for freight and $5-800 for setup (which is basically a markup since they don't do much to setup).

ABS - $800, security-$300, their numbers seem screwy.

My 08 DX cost about $19100. That is MSRP plus ABS, shipping, and tax.

The dealership I go to doesn't mark up anything no matter how rare someone buys something.
