Lots of false info in here about New York.
First, I live in the same city that the OP lives in, and would love to know what dealer added that much in fees, as I have never experienced that. I bought my F6B at Hollink and they quote OTD prices that include tax and about $100 in state-mandated fees.
Second, our sales tax rate is 8%, not 12.75%. You pay the sales tax rate at the purchase, $17 to register the bike, a $6 inspection fee, up to $75 in DMV fees, and $10 in tire disposal fees. That's it. Everything else is the dealer.
And, for the record, the only additional annual costs for owning a motorcycle in New York is a $6 safety inspection and $17 to re-register.
Just checked my invoice from buying the Honda:
Freight and set up $360
Documentation fee $30 (dealer legwork)
Registration and title $80
Tire disposal fee $5
Tax (on $15k) $1,228.80
So, with the same fees and tax rate applied for the OP, his OTD should be $21,996.70.
