That's called a f**k fee. You should be able to talk down unless hard to get. Try working another dealer....

I always wonder how many people just grin and bear it. I just put a deposit down on a new bike (not a Ducati). I checked with three dealers. Two were within $100 of each other, the third was about $1500 higher. While that dealer is the most convenient for me, not only did I not buy from him you can be assured that I will not buy accessories or have the bike serviced by that dealer. If the dealers motivation is maximizing profit then I get extremely worried about how that motivation gets translated when you have the bike serviced.

My dealer always starts off by knocking off the prep/frieght charge so you feel a little bit better when he doesn't want to budge off the MSRP for a hot bike.

When I questioned a car salesman once about one of those strange charges, he was quite up front about it. "It's just extra profit, man."

Then he smiled. And I did too.

When I sold Lincolns back in the '80s, our sister dealership in Memphis had something on thier window sticker that got my attention. "ADP".

Yep. "additional dealer profit"!

Speaking of new Miltistrada's

I'm thinking I may have to have one in the very near future. I'm curious if this is a sticker price bike or if Ducati dealers will typically negotiate on a new (current year) model.

In my neck of the woods (Oregon)...unless you are buying a 2012 or used Multi...the sticker is pretty much the cost. No dealing.

I asked my dealer this when I got mine and he said there is too many problems with this. Like any kind of warranty or shipping damages.

Seems like all dealers are different, keep shopping around or negotiate.
