Bike's Value at the DMV - When Registering

The deal is finally going through on the 2009 HD Sportster Iron XL883N.

My question is, now days they don't seem to ask you what you paid for a vehicle, they assign a tax value based on internal information.

If they do ask you, and your purchase price is below their number, they just go with their higher value.

Does anyone know what their number is tied to?

Is it NADA? Or Kelly Blue Book? Is it Trade In or Retail?

If someone out there has a NADA book, could they please tell me what it says for this bike?

If they still factor in mileage it's 13,000.

I THINK they go by NADA value or your purchase price, whichever is higher.

I can tell you this much....they ain't looking at trade in value. I paid taxes on Suggested retail when I paid up on my 883. I had copy of check written for bike and BOS showing I paid over $500 less than they were taxing me on. They didn't care.

They value at 80% to that. So, the value is 5,134*0.8 = 4107

don't think of it as a deal in this case....you're paying tax on an item that has already been taxed at least once. Don't get me started.
