(I cropped the picture to eliminate the dealer's name as I'm not trying to bash anyone but when I lived in NY, dealers would often drop the fees to make the sale as where in FL they seem less likely to do so......what do you guys think?)
Maybe try negotiating with your dealer? If you don't like the answer, try another dealer? Really no point asking this here... None of us are "your dealer", nor "you" to give you an accurate answer.

Thanks for the reply......I guess the point I was trying to inquire about was to the "general consensus" of the forum members as to their opinion as to wether they thought I could get a dealer to "waive" the dealer fees as my local dealer hasn't implied they'd do so.
With the V4 being the "hot model" at the time I'm just wondering if dealers would really waive those fees as it's just "money in the bank" for them.

If anyone has any opinions or tips in my asking future dealers about the waving, I'd like to hear it and arm myself.

Thanks guys!

GoShow95, yeah I'm thinking it's gonna be near impossible to get those fees waived.

I think it just adds to the "dealership=stealership" feeling most of us have.

I think I'd tend to be much more inclined to support my local dealer if they waived those fees during a m/c purchase and gain my support rather then buy the bike from them and then never set foot inside again unless a warranty issue forced me to.

It's a shame this is the way it is as it seems some people managed to get the fees waived while others cannot. (and the fees are quite high at near $1500!)

~Enough crying......thanks guys.

Thanks NG01 for the information. It's the first time I'll be owning a Ducati and also I am new to the motorcycling scene here in Australia. So, I am unaware on how should I proceed. I'll surely check on their FB page.
Thanks.

Imo much better to build up a relationship with a dealership that actually wants your business then what factory backed docwa is offering which is piss poor.

No thanks

Guess things are different on your part of OZ, down here desmo owner club is allies with dealer and register in italy. Anything goes wrong go for dealer and can't be solved then club president step in to help solve the problem by pass the counter staff or incharge.

I had problems with my 1st ducati previously and end up dealership top management step in to override their own rules book to get it down for me. happy customer is a return customer. V4 is my 3rd ducati in 4th year.

Fraser Ducati in Sydney city is awesome, store manager ensure all after sales service is guarantee satisfy.
