surely seems like a private importer as v12 said. cos im sure otherwise the introduction of Ducati in India would have been all over the news and they would have had an email address of a Ducati website rather than have one on hotmail.

They are selling Ducatis, and cant even afford a simple Rs.900 customised email address? Reminds me of the Ferrari launch ad by national garage with a rediffmail email id.

From my limited knowledge of motorbikes, I dont think this is very true anymore. I saw brand new Ducatis in the US which were priced about as much as similar engine size CBR's etc. Also, their reliability has been on a huge upswing. Correct, Rtech?

No, not really. Ducati's 750cc bikes are priced along the lines of the Jap manufacturers 1000cc bikes. The 999 is priced atleast 3-5 grand more. Still, not a bad deal for the "Ferrari" of the 2 wheeled world!

Well again, Ducati are very similar to Ferrari in this regard too. They have made great progress in the build qulaity and you could probably ride across the country without any problems. BUT, the Ducati needs a lot more maintanence as compared to the Jap's. Adjusting of valves have to be done at regular intervals and its not a simple job on a Duke.

But, just as there are people who will buy Lambo's and Ferrari's in India, there are twice that many who will buy the Dukes'.

What the hell! [img]http://www.team-bhp.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/***.gif[/img]

I don't think the guy will be able to sell even a single bike.

And there is also a Multistrada for sale in India. I wonder who in India would go in for that bike.

This guy is seriously nuts. You can import a brandnew 999 for 12 Lakhs. Only somebody with some seriously extra cash will buy from him I guess.
