i have never been there but have purchased things from them and had them shipped and were great to deal with at ducati bellevue. it is the closest dealer in the usa to me and they seem like good guys. just my two cents

Ducati seattle is not the same dealership it was a couple years ago when Dave ran it. For whatever reason Dave was pushed out when a new partner came in and the dealership went thru loads of changes (this was all hashed out on ducati.ms when it happened).

I do know prior to that Duc Seattle was considered one of the best dealerships,, don't know how they are now.

here's the old thread on it:

Hang on...you mean a dealer from the States actually sold you a 2008+ Duc?

I'm going up there Fri or Sat and I'll find out for you.

I'll be up there earlier than that picking up my bike, but if they're late getting it ready I may stick around to miss rush hour. Are you?

Just my experience. Back when I was searching for my 998sfe, Seattle told me they were never imported to the US and tried to sell me the the 999R that was coming out. I talked to Bret at Bellevue about the 999R and told him to go ahead and get me one but it was a shame that the 998sfe wasn't being imported. Guess what? He sold me the 998sfe at a good price and didn't lie to me. Bellevue gets my business.

Bret works at DucSea now. I bought both my bikes from Bellevue, but have had service done at both. They both have some quirks, but I really can't complain at all about the service at either place.

Thanks for the info Bronch. I was just up at Bellevue a couple of weekends ago to pick up some belts and found out he left last November I believe. I'll have to stop in on him when my schedule allows. I've never even haggled the price of a bike with him, he's always tossed out a deal that no other dealers could even think of beating. Took great care of me and a good rider too.
Thanks from bronch
