I think your local dealer should give you a bike for free, you seem like a nice guy

Or tell you to fuck off and don't come back

This is a shit thread!

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.
Exactly, if you have a local DESMO club they should be an extension of their local dealer and give each other full support. I've lived in 2 cities where this was the case and it was great, Dealers even hosted track events and us members got discounted deals. In turn all service and most parts where picked up at our dealer and everyone was a happy family.

Personally, if a dealership is not track oriented or making an effort to get folks in the door then I'm not interested in giving you my business.

To each his own, I have my standards and I believe in customer service and expect a certain vibe when I enter a high end store to spend money on a high end motorcycle.

I don't publicly bash a dealer I've noticed abusing the "Ducati experience" , I just stop visiting their store.
Thanks from Dingo and cavlino

Hey thanks I guess that's what they mean by ducatista starts before you even get the fucking bike Don't understand the attitude here not going to apologize for not being a multi-millionaire with m/c fleet Apparently the "Ducati experience" involves dealing with condescending d/heads FU

Valid question... I didn't have to negotiate with my local dealer I simply asked the question, what is the price for the V4 Base out the door if you want me to come and put a deposit on it?

They let me know they usually charge x$ for freight but they would only charge y$ to cover their costs and that is it, they would not charge documentation or PDI (handling) fees.

Simple enough, I said OK based on that I will drop in to give you a deposit.

I have several options for Dealers, my local one is only 20min away but I have several Dealers within a few hours away.

It was very refreshing to be able to deal with my local dealer (I have not purchased a bike from them before) versus having to travel to some other location.

I normally purchase bikes based on the dealership/owner/service experience and have been dealing with the local Triumph/BMW store for over 20 years.

Its fantastic when you can have a Dealer you can trust, know they will make things right if something slips thru the cracks.

I really wish they carried Ducati and I have been trying to consider a BMW S1000RR in order to remain with that Dealership but the V4 is a game changer!

Good luck and keep us posted on your experience(s).
Thanks from DUCENZO

Well you would save almost $3k right off the bat by just writing a check for the thing instead of financing. That's a game changer all by itself. That's like the difference between a base model and an S.

When I bought my 959 in April 2016, my dealer told me he didnít care if I walked in with a suitcase of cash - the price was the price... I got a good deal in the end

Did you even look at what he posted? In his price breakdown there are total finance charges close to $3k because he's only coming up with $3k down for the bike. There's no point in throwing a fit about a few hundred dollars in delivery fees when the bulk of what you're paying over MSRP are interest and finance charges because you're not paying cash.

I don't care what your dealer told you; as long as you can do third grade level math, you don't pay any of that when you walk in with "suitcase of cash." There simply aren't finance charges when you write a check for the full amount. I can't believe people can't understand that.
Thanks from Nitrouz, able duc and GoShow95
