Don't forget - Florida has like a 7% motorcycle tax on bikes sold/acquired/etc there. ..

So whatever the cost of the bike - add 7% to get it titled there. . . doesn't sound like too much but it adds up. On an 18K you're looking at 1250 or so.

If you're serious about getting an 1199, give Paul Bunde a call at NPR ducati

NPR Ducati

Located close to Athens GA. He's been involved with ducs for decades and loves the brand. I've bought two ducs from him and will be buying a hyper from him next year. He'll treat you right.

btw, where on L.I. are you? and are you keeping your R1?
I love my 09 R1 and may have to sell it to make room for the 1199

Thanks, I found a Dealer in Ocala(300 miles away) that was at 19.2 k OTD for a base which is almost 2k less than my Local Dealer.I'm just deciding on Base or S. but definitely gonna buy from him.

I Ride: 2012 Panigale S ABS
One of the guys at the dealer where I bought my 1199 S ABS told me Ducati had removed the electronic immobilizer from the keys to save weight. 100% wrong according to the manual.

What a frigging toolbag! What possible weight could that save and then your damn bike would never start!

That's Melillimoto, owner is cool. They generally beat out anyone by a good amount.

Local dealer was at $20k with the setup and destination. Not including tags & title work for a base non-abs.

Seems an odd statement and would love to hear where it has "bitten" you.
@efna and lard: Not to hijack this any further; but turn off ALL of your nanny's and leave it in full race mode....then get happy with the throttle @ 11k plus...let me know how you make out

Yes the R1 had a jumpy throttle...smoothed that out with a reflash and it has a very linear and predictable response now.

1199 and R1 are both anchors if you're not going to redline, thus your experiences may differ.

(sorry Gunny)
