40K per service is very expensive and i don't think its true. 10K per service is reasonable for ducati branded motorcycles.
My friend's HyperStrada service cost him 26k, so 40k for Pannigale may be quite possible...

Whoa! and we all thought another American brand was sucking the money out of customers pockets!

Wonder whats the service interval for these? Once in 18 months?

Thanks for the inputs guys. Aditya sir, I was talking about the service costs! Anything above 15k for a yearly service is just too much for a 13L bike. The Daytona's 10-12k service is way more reasonable!

Hmmm, very interesting. I could be in the minority here but a ~INR20k annual service cost for an imported sports bike which costs upwards of INR1.3M seems reasonable and much lower than the international norm.

Abroad, even in APAC countries with lower labour costs than the west, the service cost is typically around $300 - 400 per year for any bike north of $10k.

Why should the same bike cost less to service in India with such high import duties on spares & accessories?

Sourcing even ordinary maintenance items like the appropriate performance grade engine oil, filters and even a half decent chain lube is such a challenge here.

Sir, if all imported sports bike services costed about the same, it would've been justifiable. What I don't understand is why Ducati is charging such a large premium over the other brands. The bikes themselves are priced so aggressively but the service costs are a downer.
Yamaha/Honda/Suzuki sport bike services also cost below 10k is what I've heard. Not sure about Aprilia and BMW though.

I feel there is no fixed cost which can be termed as justifiable for superbikes - or for that matter any car or bike. The service cost is broken up into 2 categories - Consumables and Labour. As per my knowledge (subject to correction),its a 60:40 split respectively. There can be no discount or discussion left on the Consumables becuase that's what you have to pay for. The only arguing point is the labour cost which the dealers / companies charge for which in many cases is exorbitant and needs to be justifiable.

And I don't think it's got anything to do with the price of the bike. I was told that the 1st and 2nd service costs of the 35 lakhs Kawasaki H2 is lesser than the 9lakhs Z800.

Gentlemen, you are mostly correct in all your assertions. But you miss one critical factor - US & European premium bike brands should never be compared in the same sweeping brush with Japanese equivalents in India.

This is so because Japanese brands have a very unique operating position in our country compared to rest of the world. They sell more mopeds & scooters per hour here than what Ducati et al manage to sell globally in a year.

At least the Ducati CEO is very clear about this and has stated even this year that he does not want to change this exclusive positioning of Ducati one bit (after VW group acquisition)

Consequently, the Japs in India are very much in a position to offer cheaper service to their expensive bike customers since they can spread operating costs much better than a HD, Triumph, BMW or a Ducati will ever be able to.

So here I agree with everyone - one should definitely question the pricing rationale behind every service fee the Jap brands are charging here for their premium bikes.

This is clearly a competing point for US & Euro premium brands in our country.

As far as Ducati is concerned, like I mentioned earlier, their service fees are within a reasonable ball park of what Ducati owners pay elsewhere.

Its a worldwide thing of service of ducati to be a tad bit higher than the hondas. Just a comparison - the four jap makers each sell more bikes than the ducati, thus the number of service tech available in the market is wayyyy higher than what ducati can dream of getting. Also the tech guys are usually needed to be certified by Ducati etc etc.

My bike service interval is 6k miles. I have not touched my first service yet but usual visit to the shop puts me back about $200 including parts and labor. My biggest bill was for brake rotors which came to $400+100(parts+labor).

European and US bikes have a higher service schedule when compared to their Japanese Counterparts. Japanese SBK are very easy and low on maintenance. They need just a simple oil change and Oil filter replacement every 5000-7500 kms based on your riding pattern. Air filter replacement also depends on your environmental conditions.

My FZ-1 was more ridden on the highways and never on the city roads. In all my 12000 kms of ownership experience I never changed it. All that was required was a good wash and a few drops of oil to keep it moist.

Ducati & Europeans bikes have different service schedules and I believe they are now closely ramping up to meet the standards set up by their Jap counterparts. I think Duc multistrada is serviced once in 15000 kms which can be nearly 12-15 months of usage.

I am not sure on HD and I would appreciate if anybody owning them to give a detailed analysis on the service intervals and its works as suggested by HD.

If you are buying a Ducati, you must know that you are buying an L-Twin with desmodromic valves. After all, that is one of THE trademarks of a Ducati.

The Desmo system needs an adjustment after a certain number of miles. 24000 km on mine. They have been working on extending that range through the years. This must be considered as part of Ducati ownership.

Just like with cars, quality of components from Japanese manufacturers are beyond compare. Low volume manufacturers like Ducati will always face failures with vendor components like fuel pump, rectifiers, sensors, etc. They can and usually will fail at different intervals.

Harley also has similar manufacturer related issues, compounded by failures related to extreme vibrations, heat and rough ride. Improperly serviced bikes can fall apart due to this.

But bikes like these have character that a reliable, trouble free Japanese bike can never give.

Choose your poison.

Cheers

Ride Safe.

Smile Nine more reasons to look forward to 2016

Ducati To Introduce Nine New Models In 2016

Quote:
In a press release issued by Ducati today, company CEO, Claudio Domenicali announced that “No less than nine new models, including the just-unveiled Monster 1200 R, will be joining the 2016 range.” These nine models will be introduced to the public during EICMA 2015.

Domenicali also announced two of these new models will bring Ducati into segments the company currently doesn’t occupy. The move is an effort to extend the Ducati brand to a new group of motorcyclists who had previously not been catered to.

My boss bought a BMW1200GS last year in bangalore. The bike costed him close to 35L on road.
the last service on that bike costed 52K INR plus some change. AFAIK it was a routine service, and just fitment of many accessories which hes had bought separately. So yeah, service charges for these bike could cost a new 100-150cc bike. :(
