If it helps you any, I just paid $7700 OTD for a Standard version in California. My general rule with most Japanese bikes is, my expected OTD price is no more than the MSRP. This varies on time of year, popularity of the bike and if it is a current model or not. So if your able to negotiate a deal anything under MSRP as your OTD price, you are doing well. I too was looking to get a DCT also, mainly for the ABS feature, but they were scarce in southern CA and not willing to travel very far a NC750. I am satisfied with with my decision.
I would try Big Box dealer first, they typically have a bigger wiggle room to negotiate vs. smaller dealers. Big Box dealers might be a PIA at times, but alot of their inventory is on consignment basis from the OEM and looking to move the vehicle for the volume credit whereas smaller dealers may actually have a loan or purchased the vehicle and needs to make a profit on it.
