Yep - no deals on the R cos they sell themselves .. if you can find one now

Friend bought a base - spent 3k and the bike is a monster, properly tuned got 20hp gain all the midrange back, changed sprocket & chain. Cheap bike goes just as well if not better than my stock R. Comes down to what you are willing to spend really - I just wanted an R with no mods (for now) tired of doing bikes up plus my first ever Ducati so went this line and its going to be predominately a track bike anyway. Personally I think the base or S price atm is a bargain

There'd even be limitations on Ducati advising of recommend and minimum sale price.

No doubt, it's easiest for dealers to simply, not discount and offer other incentives...
Well it looks like the agreement is in full force - after the mornington guys agreed to match the city store deal (admittedly, they seemed pretty pissed about it, as they claimed neither store was supposed to discount) I basically agreed to buy the bike from them - as they were the ones who initially put in the work - however when later checking availability with them they advised me that they had called Ducati City who had denied making the offer so they then said the best they could do was standard retail. Not sure what I hate more - being basically accused of lying, or being screwed out of the deal by the whole "pricing agreement" situation. Either way, I now don't really want to buy from either dealer - so might keep an eye out for second hand instead.
