Guys ,

I just checked out , but trust me the prices mentioned by the so called Ducati dealer in Bombay are nearly true.
But these prices have to be with official genuine official import and not TR

Some hot selling yamaha and honda prices are also listed for ease of comparision.

the prices u have given are retail prices which include the tax in that particular country (US in this case).

But when the dealer buys, he is given dealer price, which shud be at least 20% less. Where is that taken into account?

the prices were given so as just to say that Ducati models cost somewhere close to 3 times of the competative models from other manufactures.

I did not want to get deep into duties and stuff

IMO,,,,Dukes are a waste of money

When I can buy a busa , r1 and truimph for the price of one 999R
I would never get a duke

From the comparison Dipen gave, the Ducatis aren't all that powerful. I'm not much into bikes, but what is it about 'em Ducs that justifies three times the price of a Jap bike. These Japs beat 'em at the numbers game, and are no slouch around the track either. But then nor are the Ducs right? These things have been winning the WSBK ever since I can remember, while the Japs are gunning for glory at the MotoGP. So why are Ducs so expensive?

Actually these prices are correct. At the last years Toronto Motorcycle show I checked out all the motorcycles and you need to see it to believe how Their build quality is just impeccable. The R1 which is touted to be the best motorcycle ever doesnt even have proper wire covering while on the ducati you wont even see a single piece out of place.

Usually its triumph that tries to compete with the Japs for price.

check this out and you will hate 2-wheels even more.


http://www.bimotausa.com/home.html
MSRP: US-$ 59,800 for a Tesi 2D (And we say that first generation Tesi is a failure.LoL)


Mv agusts F4 1000 Tamburini
http://www.mvagustausa.com/web-mvagu...1000_Tamb.html
MSRP: $42,695 - SOLD OUT!


Even Benlli Tornado and Aprilia Mille prices start from $16-17K


http://triumph.classich-d.com/new_ve...sc=Motorcycles

The triumph 955i daytona goes for 10K which is similar to the Japs.

It's just for the material they use...Apparently that material is exquisite and these bikes are generally in limited numbers, to make them rare as well.

Can you imagine a 1litre, SOHC, air/oil-cooled, 85 bhp producing Bimota Delirio selling for $59k+?

Me thinks these bikes are for those people who have loads of money and prefer style to performance.
