  • [Serious talk, no trolling] Ducati Monster 821 Dark ownership costs.

    So, I was wondering if someone could help me out with cutting the Ducati hate bullshit and actually give me real world Perth specific experience on ownership costs of a Ducati Monster 821 (or any similarly powered Duc, 796 etc.).

    What are you service costs really, where do you get it serviced, how often do you service, when are the BIG services, how much are they?

    No BS, no trolling, no Hurhurr Dooocati is just paying for a brand etc. Real talk time.

    Here's an idea...

    Ring the two Ducati dealers in Perth and ask for a price to complete a service on your imaginary bike...

    That way you will get true quotes...

      Wouldn't I just get the scheduled maintenance that's in the owners manual and their best price for those services?

      That isn't real world, that is what Ducati wants/expects it to be. The real world might require more or less than what they say.

          Not trolling. Unfortunately Google/PSB search gets me more trolling than real answers.

            The very best way to have a thread turn to shit is to be overly precious and patronising.

            Especially on a Friday afternoon, when people are antsy in their pantsy.

                PS. phone a third party Ducati mechanic if you don't trust the dealers.

                    Will your next thread be "How long can I get away without insuring my bike for?"?

                    Is it that you're wanting to hear from people who can afford to neglect their (relatively) expensive bikes? And hear about their success/failure in order to determine the level of risk you will take on how cheap you can be?

                    If you can't stomach the cost to take care of a vehicle, buy a different vehicle. Or stick with the one you've got until you can afford to get the one you want.

                      when has a dealer ever given someone the "best price" on anything haha!

                      Most services have a fix priced. it will only increase if other things are broken or worn on your bike, and that becomes a question of how long a piece of string is

                        Belts and valves cost about a grand and have to be done every 3 years or so. Other than that the servicing is pretty much the same as a filthy japper.

                          It was a serious request. Anyway, should have known better than ask such a Friday thread question on a Friday.

                            It's not what you asked, it's how you went about it.

                              He was right, dead right, as he rode along
                              But he's just as dead as if he'd been wrong.
