I guess today has turned into Harley Davidson day here, but I came across this bit of news. Frankly, considering the current economic conditions, I found it surprising. But the MoCo is running a promotion from now until 31 Mar that will give Sportster riders the original MSRP of their bikes if they trade them in on a Big Twin.
Riders purchasing 2008 or 2009 model year Sportster 883 or 1200 motorcycles (excluding XR1200) at a participating Harley-Davidson dealership between Dec. 26, 2008 and Mar. 31, 2009 can trade that Sportster in within one year to receive original MSRP on trade-in for qualifying Harley-Davidson Big Twin or VRSC motorcycles.
Riders trading in a 2007-2009 model year Sportster 883 or 1200 motorcycle at a participating Harley-Davidson dealership between Dec. 26, 2008 and Mar. 31, 2009 will receive the original MSRP on that Sportster toward the purchase of qualifying Harley-Davidson Big Twin or VRSC motorcycles.
What is considered the MSRP value? Harley-Davidson defines it as the factory-delivered MSRP (including factory installed options) of the qualifying new motorcycle.
“Those are some sweet numbers, Wade.”
