Pretty close to list price.  No real extras.  Not an awful deal, but not a special one either.  At least it is in my color.
The bike has pannier mounts, but they are not listed, so I am guessing they will not go with the bike.

In a couple of the photos it looks like he's using the Wolfman type dry bags.

Latest rub:
I was getting a new auger belt at the Honda dealer today (for the snow blower) and walked by their floor VFR Interceptor.  The sign on it said "Interceptor/Deluxe marked down to $10,500"  I knew they had the basic there so I asked,m and he said "yeah, all the signs are Interceptor/Deluxe, but this is the basic".  I said I would be really interested in the Deluxe at that price, so he said he would make some calls, it was not beyond the realm of possibility.  I told him he had a week before I was sitting in tthe Triumph dealer talking Tiger.

Dealer offered me $1500 off the 2014 Deluxe.  Not bad, but maybe not enough to change my mind about the bike and its accessories being overpriced for what they are.

I stopped into Street Stuff this morning.   They were very nice, eager to answer any questions I had.  They said the first of the XRx machines would arrive in their shipment this week, already on the truck, but delayed by last week's snow.  The panniers and top box were already in stock, but they said the challenge with the bike is that Triumph has already warned them that demand will exceed supply.
Of course a deposit would make my chances that much better....

I've heard the demand is high. So whats the scoop with the luggage, it's the newly designed (Givi) stuff or the older stuff like I had. Are they willing to discount any accessories if you get them with the bike purchase? I know all my stuff was discounted.

Who did you deal with there, a woman?

There were 3 people there, a woman, an older guy and a middle aged guy, I was speaking with all of them.  We didn;t talk price, but the luggage they had in stock was older stuff.  The newest luggage does not allow both the topcase and the sidecases, unless you get the right hinges, it is one or the other.  I'll get to specific cases when I have a checkbook in hand.  Gives them more incentive.
