The Ducati dealership in Cochin unfortunately (for potential buyers that is) is refusing to drop prices for 2016 manufactured 959s even though we are into the second half of the calendar year .

I hope someone from Ducati is reading this!
Doesn't this make them pre-bs4 bikes? If so they can't be registered currently, or where they bs4 certified from the start?

The 959 was designed to be Euro 4 compliant from day 1 and hence the double exhausts that caused the world to cringe at the design. While Ducati have had to temporarily take the M821, Diavel and Scrambler off their showrooms due to non Euro 4 compliance, the 959 continued to be on sale, albeit with 2016 manufactured bikes.

Any idea of the Desert Sled will be relaunched? IMHO that is a significant vehicle for India as it offers good rough-road capability on a vehicle with a proven Ducati engine with relatively fewer electronic controls (? dunno).

It may not be a hard-core off-roader, but then nobody in their senses would take a temperamental italian too far from civilisation. The Desert Sled, from what I have heard, should be able to deal with our terrible roads and some trails. Its a bike I am considering for use in India, hence the query.

IMO - launching at these prices is one side of the coin - the nice side. Maintenance and service costs are the dark side for most brands and ducati sits right there at top. Sometimes i strongly feel the urge to indugle myself coz the entry price looks within reach (with loans of course) but then clocking serious kms will mean the next stage of spends that just seem too irrational at this moment. This segment will be considered mature and main stream (read people with loans getting in) when the cost of ownership isnt so prohibitive anymore.

I am picking up my multistrada 950 tomorrow. Has anyone else booked it? Just wondering if we have some MS950 company here in TBHP

So it doesn't looks like a one-off case. Maybe one/two batches of motorcycles were affected by some supplier cycle parts.

It would be great if Ducati owners in the forum (Shubz, sen2009) could highlight the niggling issues (if any) that the fellow Ducatista/Ducatisti are facing.
Sorry for the late reply on this.

I have ridden my Monster 821 about 3500 KM till now and have not faced any issues at all. There was a fork oil leak during the first month and at was sorted out immediately. Other than that no issues as such.

Among my ducati riding buddies, didn't come across much niggle incidences yet.

Have you checked on the service intervals / service cost etc and averaged it / compared it with other bike service costs?

After much hard work, here goes the basis of my understanding. And another instance where a friend of mine bought a used Hypermotard and spent upwards of 8k to get the break pads changed. I know the data points are thin but there just aren't that many people owning or at least posting about their service experience with Ducati.
