The first major reason is the labour costs. these companies are running in Europe where labour costs are sky rocketing.

Plus the economies of scale dont work out favourable due to small units.

Thirdly most of the bikes are handmade. Hence more labour hours plus more investment plus more fixed cost.

fourthly most of the parts on the bike are of high quality.

fifth, quite a few companies use a jap engine hence ending up paying royalties.

lack of dealerships leads to these bikes being shipped and logistics costs increase.

Hence the ultimate costs end up being higher.

The local Ducati Agency here is run by a Mallu and he confirmed to me last month (had gone there with a friend's KTM for service) that Duke is indeed going to be available in India soon.

Are you kidding? They cost nearly twice as much as a comparable Yamaha/Honda/Kwak/Zuk.

Does a Ferrari cost the same as a Honda NSX?

While the advent of Ducati Bollywood-side spells great news for the broader paradigm of Indian motorcycling, it's hardly going to be a practical or cheap 'alternative'. The Dukes are expensive machines even abroad. Give me the rugged, dependable, ubiquitous Japs any day; it's no wonder they are so ingrained in the public mind.

The ducati 848 is more expensive than an R1. leave alone a 1098 or anything else. even the Ducati monster 600 is priced equal to an r1. these things are pricey mann!

Dude we pay an import duty (taxes/penalty/surcharge if you will) for vehicles not manufactured in india. Its close to 120%. So a 10,000 dollar vehicle would cost 22000$ etc etc. hence the high price. and i dont need to tell u that ducati's are higher in price than any japanese bike. no ?
