The elegance also comes through in the pricing. With a suggested base price of $16,995, the Softail Springer Classic is among the company's pricier standard non-dresser models. Adding ESPFI raises that by $400 (unless you buy a California model, in which case the cost of meeting the emissions requirements is $190 less than the carbureted version), and our burgundy paint (Harley calls it Black Cherry Pearl, and you can also select blue or black-pearl solid colors) adds $285 over basic black or red/black, and blue/silver two-tones add an additional $140. With the pretty wheels, the MSRP for our bike would be $18,155before charges for California emissions, taxes or any of the many accessories with which Harley or the aftermarket might tempt you. At the time of this writing, we counted more than 1200 accessories for this bike alone on Harley's web site, and the company is constantly devising new ones. Expect to spend $20,000, and the dealer may add a surcharge to that.
