What kind of offer should I make for the Black Raider with Cobra Drag Pipes. I know Harley does not come off retail, but I have read of some good deals on the Raider. I saw where one guy got one for $11,700 before taxes and tags.

Any hints. I want to walk in prepared and with cash.

This forum is awesome. Thanks Y'All.

It is a tough call. It would really depend on the dealer. Around here, the dealer stays at retail for hte most part. I got my Red S for 13,500.00 out hte door. Only because he misquoted me the price. And when he realized it, he said it was his fault so he stuck by it. Cash doesn't mean what it used to. Even with financing the dealer gets all his money and if oyu default, the bank comes after you not the dealer.

yeah and i was told that these things are selling so well that the dealer i bought mine from wished he could raise the price, but i still talked him into taking the price of the sales tax off the total price, you could try that ;D

I bought the Raider S in Tommy Blue for $12,799 before tax and tags.
I had a hard time pulling them down from the MSRP of $13,799
But I would have paid the MSRP if I had to. After I test drove a Raider I was sold and would pay but thank god I have a good wife that knows how to work a deal. I would have gave in.

I paid $13,300 for the blue S and I did not negotiate at all. If you really love that crossbones, HD will come off msrp, if you are patient. Domestic Harley sales are down. I own a new Raider because the Harley dealer called me four times in the past year to offer me a bike (2007 Dyna Wide Glide at a reduced price) $18700msrp $14500(last quote plus they offered to overpay on my trade) and I did take less in trade from Yamaha. Friend got a FatBoy for $7000.00 0ff retail.

I filled out the "get a quote" form for a couple dealers. One in Ohio (I am here for 4 more weeks) and the other in NC. I said I would pay $13,300 out the door with Cobra Drag pipes for the Black Raider. I am probably way too low, but we will see. I am going to buy the first of May, so I can look around at different dealers. Will let you all know what kind of response I get.

I got what I would consider a deal here in roch n.y.....I paid 12 for my raven raider from CYCLE STOP of rochester. The people there were actually very patient with me as i was a pain in the ass...I started out wanting a customized streetbob they had... but didnt want to spend 17K...then thought about the x-bones when they got one in stock...started all the work, then said nevermind too much money for the bike.....then came back a month later when I saw the raider online and found out that they had one on the sales floor.... I fell in lust instantly with the style and the price...and what it came with for that price. I dont like chrome so I opted for black, and will be de-chroming and powder coating or ceramic coating anything that isnt already black...and im going to have my buddy hand paint in small old school pins stripe lettering... "[email protected] Bling" ;D :icon_twisted: (Sorry short story....Longer)

I got my Red S out the door with tax and title for $13,700 which was the very best i could do around here in KS. I called every dealer in the stae and only found 5 bikes that were not spoken for 2 Black and 1 Red non S 1 Blue and 1 Red S. They were scattered all over the state and most dealers were not budging off of sticker and the one with the Blue S actually wanted a thousand more than sticker. (I told him he was nuts and he said he owned a dealership out in CO that was getting it on everyone they sold)

My suggestion is just go in with a number in mind and if they can't or wont get there be prepared to walk out. You would be amazed what turning down an offer and then sitting on a bike another week will do to a dealer.

Good liuck and welcome to the addiction that is the Raider.
