I was in the local dealership last week and, as I am want to do, checking out what ever is in the showroom when I spot a very familiar looking Sportster. So I check the VIN # (just happened to have that info with me) and sure enough, it’s the very same bike the wife traded in for her FXDL exactly one year ago. OK, nothing strange about that until I looked at the price tag. Now I bought that bike a year ago, brand new and paid MSRP of $7980 (close enough anyway) so we could take advantage of the “Trade Offer” going on at that time. The wife rode it for 250 miles and then fell in love with her Low Rider and the trade was made. (Whole other story). Now in my book that makes the Sporty a used bike but, the price tag now says $9999.99. Huh?? So I get on the HD website and look up MSRP for a 09 1200 low and it says $9780 not the $7980 it was when it was actually 2009. I know the manufacturer gets to suggest the retail price but to arbitrarily change the MSRP on what is now a 2 model-year old bike just so they can jack up the resale price on their used stuff seems just this side (or maybe the other side) of sleazy. May be if the MOCO didn’t try to stick it to us at ever bend in the road, dealerships wouldn’t be closing right and left. Just a thought. Sorry for the rant but, this has been bugging me. I feel much better now, thanks.
