A doc fee is standard and varies from state to state somewhere between $80 and$190 is typical and you WILL pay it, it's the price of doing business. The price you were quoted includes sales tax, I'm afraid you cant avoid that.
You're considering buying a Triumph not a Kawasaki, these bikes sell, they don't have trouble selling them, if you don't want it, they'll wait for the next guy who does.
The truth is there is very little mark up on these bikes, that's why dealers don't budge on the price, they make money on parts, service and accessories.
You say you don't want to buy used, that's fine, I get it but just for Ss&Gs check them out, they're few and far between, that should tell you something. Good luck.
