If you disagree with the estimated value of a bike you can have a licensed dealer sign a special form declaring the value of the bike.

Those fees are already included in the price of the motorcycle from the factory. Any dealer adding that ON TOP of the sale price, WALK AWAY from. You shouldn't have to pay for any of that , it's just extra cash they will pocket....

What about new?

So we've stated used fees, anyone know the amount for title and registration on a new bike? Taxes I assume are 7.25% for sales tax or does the 6.25% apply to all auto sales?

Let's say I buy a brand new Bike X for $7,500 after some killer negotiating tactics. Now I have to pay taxes (of course based on the sales value, an unrelated factor. For sake of argument let's just state the rate whether it's 7.25% or 6.25%) Now, I have to pay Title and Registration fees. Anyone know the tax rate, title, and registration fees for a new motorcycle purchase?

Edit: I searched Harris County's Tax site but could not find this basic information.
