Default Re: Ducati posts record earnings

I am curious if the dealership you are refering to is Trackstar in MPLS. I recently tried to call them early this spring and was stunned to hear that the phone # was no longer in service. I was wondering what happened to them. It's a shame the store was so cool. They were the only dealership in Minnesota that carried motorcycle riding boots in stock so you could try them on. I believe Moto Primo is a new dealership that might take its place. I',m not sure though. Let me know if this is the dealership you are referring to.

Actually it is Wheels Unlimited in Rochester. They will be staying open as a repair shop and to sell used bikes.

Default They better save all that earnings....

No, I haven't seen the photos of the front end--only the photo on Ducati.com. They must be done with it, because they are rolling it out at WDW which is coming up shortly in Italy. But, I do get the impression that they are hiding some stuff--so I would think there could be many changes and surprises before the 2003 season.

My guess is that there is much more to the story than what you are privy to.

We just can't get away from this negative crap can we? There always has to be at least one. Your comment is rediculous and without merit.

They're going to call it the "Multistrada" and is likely to hve either the 916 enging or the new 900cc testeratessa (?) engine in it.

I dunno.. seems reasonable to me.. they are massively expensive for what they are. Not sure why you're so angry about it either...

I don't know for sure what makes me so mad about these type of comments either, other than they just seem totally absurd to me. Everybody readily accepts the fact that Ferarri's cost more than Chevrolets--or that homes in San Francisco cost more than homes in Nebraska. Only in the motorcycle industry have I ever heard a comment that carries on about why a classic Italian made bike is more expensive than cookie cutter Japanese bikes. If one doesn't understand the value there, then buy the cheap bike--but to go around saying a Ducati should cost the same as a Honda seems totally absurd to me.
