Getting below MSRP on a Harley is very very rare. and will be increasingly rare as they are cutting production, to keep prices up.

Do the cool thing with your Harley. Rip the engine apart at 3K miles, add a suspention that would make 90% of sport bikes jealous, and never ride it. It is a Plainfield thing.

Getting below MSRP can be done. I did with mine. I have an 07 Night Rod Special I got in July. I had to call/ email 22 dealers to find one, and was still able to get it below MSRP.
