Suckers pay MSRP. then again people who owned 1199ís that spent 25% of their ownership in the shop are the same ones buying a first year V4 so the sucker process starts even before negotiation I guess (Not shooting anyone in the foot here Iím one of those suckers)
No, this is supply & demand in action.

Could be because the 'riding' season really hasn't started yet and/or new model release... Granted I can afford the MSRP cost, but I can't find it in my soul to pay MSRP cost.
When I bought my 2014 Ducati Monster 1200s from my Manhattan dealer before it was even at the dealerships he gave me $1000 off plus no freight or prep which saved me another $650. I asked for $1500 off MSRP but we settled on $1000 off MSRP plus no freight or prep just so I wouldnt buy the bike from my Long Island dealer. My long island dealer was only discounting the Monster 1200s $400 since i was a new customer. Since then my long island dealer has been bought out (gold coast motorsports) and the new owner gave me $1000 off my 2015 BMW S1000R when I came in with no freight or prep and a discount on mounting parts. Then he game me a huge discount on my 1299 and of course the 0% interest on the bike through Ducati. Then on my 2016 S1000RR which I bought in Oct 2016 he gave me $1500 off plus zero prep and zero freight with a .1 interest rate from BMW and 15% off on all parts and 18% off any helmet , boot or jacket accessories and 15% off of labor. This dealer recognizes customer loyalty which is why i bought 3 bikes in 2.5 years and many of my friends bought 2 to 3 bikes in 1 to 3 years. If you find the right dealer who wants repeat business then you will get your discount

A strong relationship with a dealer can deviate the laws of supply and demand, up to a point. I got a pretty good 'deal' on my Speciale ($41k OTD), within the constraints that you have to more or less pony up to get a hot bike early. This is the third bike I've bought from them in a year, so I get a little special consideration. But there's a limit.

Nothing better than waiting it out if you want to save money, though. That always beats everything. I just bought a leftover '17 Aprilia RSV4, new and the same as the '18, for about $6500 off what I'd have to pay for an '18. The dealer of course has incentives from the factory and will still make some kind of a profit on it, but for lots of reasons they really have to move the leftovers. I got a similar great deal a year ago on a leftover '16 BMW touring bike. There is no better way to save than to wait. But who knows when I could get a Speciale if I waited! There won't be any leftovers of those, I suspect....

I Ride: Panigale V4
My dealer is trying to get me on a few fronts, and I'm just trying to sort out which battles to pick.

MSRP for the bike (Base V4 ($21,195)), which I can stomach.

500 for setup, which I plan to fight.

700 for freight, which I plan to fight.

But my real question is, I qualified as tier 1 for financing (800+ credit score) and they're still telling me that 5.99% is the best they can do. That seems high, should I pick that battle?

Also already got them to agree to swap parts from 1299S to V4 (levers, pegs, gas cap, lithium battery). And 10% off accessories (race seat, black front mudguard).

Curious how you'd all handle the situation. They have the bike sitting in the warehouse, so I'm not fighting anyone for it. And the salesguy has been trying to get me to upgrade since the bike was released. I actually had a deposit down on one that I took back after the unveiling earlier this year. Now I have another deposit down after being impressed with the agility of the bike last week, but also refundable and I'm willing to walk away if I think I'm getting screwed.

Cheers.

There is really not much setup on bikes these days. I think all they do now is get the battery charged and going. In the mmm old days they actually had to final assemble them bike. Freight is well freight and that’s what’s it costs to get it from Italy to your dealer. I think 500 is excessive on the assembly, but you are having them swap lots of parts over which is maybe two hours of labor. I say get that knocked down to 200 at most.

I got $500 off MSRP on my V4s. No other charges on the invoice except for a doc fee of 150. Where I got killed was on sales tax and licensing. Sales tax was 10.3 or 10.4% yikes. Also licensing was $400. The price of living in the Seattle/Bellevue area. Just got my license plate and the registration lists the regional transit authority fee as $300! That is for building light rail and such. I am OK with that as long as they do what they say they will do. I did not really negotiate much but am happy enough with the deal.

Hi guys new here, current Ducati owner. I am thinking about purchasing a V4S. What would you guys consider a good out the door price?

Just bought my V4S last Saturday. The dealer (Velocity Honolulu) was having a special till the end of the month. 10% off all bikes.

It basically ended up coming out to $27500 out the door, because i didn't have to pay assembly, destination charge, and tax with the 10% discount. Normal out the door price was about $30k.

Also was able to put it all on my American express. Almost enough points to fly to vegas.
