Go price a top case and all the mounting hardware required for quick release on the Harley site then add to the price for lights and integrated stereo speakers and see what it comes to?
I don't know where you come form but where I come from $1750 is A LOT of money! The price of accessories for the Victory's is ridiculous. $150 for a cord to connect an iPod? $499 for a luggage rack? $770 for rider and passenger backrests?
And PLEASE don't use the "Well go to H-D and see what their accessories cost" argument because everyone knows H-D stands for HUNDRED DOLLAR.
The problem with anything is that it's worth whatever someone will pay for it and enough people reach for their wallets without giving it a second thought.
I like my Cross Country, I am glad I bought it and I did not go into the purchase blind to accessory costs, but the only reason I did buy my XC was that the dealer cut me a pretty sweet deal on the accessories I wanted at the time of purchase. Otherwise I probably wouldn't have bought it.
