The MV Augusta F4 retails for $32000 and above at least.
Source : http://www.mvagusta.com.au/
Though these prices are in Australian dollars,
In India after all duties , it would land up to not less than 20 laks.

To me, Ducati's and Augusta's are waste considering their prices, unless U have extra cash to BURN. NO offense to anyone.
Also , they lack the reliability of the Japanese.
Only thing they have is exclusivity coz of their steep prices and so called designer looks.

here in Canada the price of the european(usually Italian) bikes starts where the price range of Busas and Ninjas end.

I also saw a ducati cost more than a Harley davidson.

What's the fuss about so called being a "designer bike"..???.....it's ultimately the performance which is going to matter...and i don't think Jap bikes ain't good looking. It's not necessary for something to be costly just because it is made or developed in Italy.

Especially if he's getting it to India . . . . . . . .
I doubt if any of our so called SBK mechanics would be able to even understand the machine, leave alone repair it (when required).

Yes all these eurpean bike are very expensive so they dont give you bang for your buck also servicing them is not that easy.

I remmeber one instance whihc my friend told, one of the famous dealers in pune had to open a Ducati for some repairs, it took him a month or so to aseemple it back coz ihe said it had aorund 200 springs in the engine

japs are quite cheap to buy & maintain in comarison to the europeans.

When it comes to the bikes, I would pick Japanese over European. Because bikes are meant to be light, fast and easy on the pocket. Cars, however, is a different matter. LOL
