....but I did buy on xmas eve! If you were gonna buy in the middle of next summer I assume the price would be £10500 without those extras?!
Anyone buying new before the end of March 2010 will get the Arai Chaser, Dainese Leathers, Back protectors, boots and gloves thrown in (Ducati led promo rather than dealer), and many dealers have been throwing in Termis with standard deal to secure a sale for a while. So most should be able to get the same deal.
They say the free kit is worth 2,000GBP, but I am not sure it adds up (400 helmet, 650 leathers, 150 gloves, 150 boots, 100 Back - Prices from Onyerbike website). So I am fairly sure Ducati cost price is only about 1,000, which equals the price hike! I am not saying it is a bad deal, but I am sure there are a lot of people out there that would prefer 1,000 off the price instead. Of course it is good marketing from Ducati - get people in branded kit so they are less likely to buy another brand.
