1098 UK prices

Published today on Moto Rapido's website. Imagine it will be similar at other authorised Ducati dealers. Pity we can't enjoy the "negotiated" lower rate that the American dealers managed to get for their customers from Ducati...still they are as follows:

Base model: 11,250.00
"S" model: 13995.00
Tricolore model: 15995.00

Compared to the base model:

In essence, 2745 more gets you the DDA, Ohlins front and rear and a carbon front mudguard on the "S"

4745 more gets you the DDA, Ohlins front and rear, carbon front mudguard, the "different paint scheme", and the Termi system

I cannot stretch to the Tricolore at the moment, but then again I am not a lover of the paint job on it anyway, so I am going for the "S" instead and will probably end up spending the difference on the Termis anyway. That's a nonsense in financial reasoning on my part but at least I can spread the cost over a longer period which is less painful than shelling out 16K in one go! (Oh how I miss the grey import days and my beloved 748SPS)

What makes them so expensive ?

Is it just the " Ducati " badge on the tank ?

Still want one

an R1 with brembos, marchsinis (sp) and ohlins cost 14k, so seems fair

Ahhh...well. That's still me lost to them as a returning customer. The days of me spending 14k on a Ducati and then having to suffer savage depreciation are over. I am neither stupid or willing any longer. Their loss.

Give it two years then buy a second-hand one with all the kit on it.

Am I right in thinking the extra for the Tricolore gets you the 70mm full system? If so, an extra 2k would make this a bit of a bargain.

Yes you are and at 1600 + VAT for the Termis were you to buy them separately, plus the paintjob (which is a love it or loathe it affair) it's not a bad deal. Still going for the "S" though, with some 916 stylee paintwork and pinstriping to the tail unit and nose cone, since the Tricolore design is a bit of an eyesore IMHO.
