Aussie pricing
 
Hi guys - looking to pickup a base model in Melbourne. Have sold the RSV4 so am now good to go - just wondering if anyone has any advice/feedback on pricing ? There are some factory bonus' going at the moment - Ducati City have quoted a new 2013 base model with Termi slip ons, fitted and map updated, ride away for $28,500. Good deal ? If not, any advice on what I should be looking to offer ? I am used to being able to shop around a bit to get the best price - but I am getting the impression there isn't much scope for that with a new Duke (this would be my first)!

The price looks good. Mine worked out dearer than that as I fitted carbon bling on my base. As bluebear said...get it in writing.

Micky, the price is pretty good mate.

I think we may have met last Saturday.

Try the guys in Mornington but I think you will find you have done pretty well. I think the 899 has been a good thing for the 1199 price.

I paid more!

Cheers guys. I'll give the guys at mornington a bell.....maybe see if they can throw in the racing seat or dda+

Hey Micky,

I am picking up my 1199 from Fraser Ducati tomorrow 29th Nov. At first they did not want to deal at all. After walking away, two weeks later I received a call offering me slip-ons and free first service and install. $28990 ride away. Not bad considering mornington would not do any deals at all.

There is supposedly a deal in place whereby neither dealer discounts at all - probably a condition imposed by Ducati to ensure they control pricing to a certain extent. That price is the standard ride away pricing now with the Ducati Summer promotion (previously this deal only applied to the higher spec models - the base was added at the beginning of November) - guess they are throwing in the first service and install to sweeten the deal.

My mandatory training, at work, is competition and consumer law,which would suggest that's a breech of consumer law.

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...

$45990 with Full Termi Exhaust installed, Comfort seat and exhaust heat shield (free anyway) from Frasers Sydney - Del was supposed to be on 1 Dec but has been put back a week - be lucky to find another R available on this shipment I reckon (I didnt bargain - just wanted it) :)
