IMO this is totally the other way around. Sure the bike is not cheap but I am original from Germany and you would think that Germany being so close to Italy the bikes are cheaper but for example the base model is about $3500 more when you convert the currency. I would taxes is a big part. Besides the price the bike is much more expensive to buy insurance for and we don't even talk about gas (4x more expensive).

I think it depends on what you consider to be rich. Bill Gates rich? Surely not. Someone once said it in this forum "It's the same price of a Nissan Sentra and one is a lot more enjoyable to drive than the other. " It depends on what you want and how much you are willing to spend for it. Is it expensive compared to other bikes? probably yes but it's surely not out of the reach if you want one.
