They've been around a while:

"Estate taxes are not a new phenomenon; they date back almost three thousand years. As early as 700 B.C., there appears to have been a 10 percent tax on the transfer of property at death in Egypt. In the first century A.D., Augustus Caesar imposed a tax on successions and legacies to all but close relatives."

I agree, or 10% at most.



Regarding Ducati, maybe Ratan Tata should buy them, Tata Sons seems to own everything else these days. A modern 250 single for a reasonable price would knock Royal Enfield on their ears and probably sell like hotcakes, or garlic Naans as the case may be...
