Hi all -- I'm looking to buy a new Ducati Monster 620 or a S2R, and just wondering what other people's experiences have been going to a dealership. Which dealership is best? Did you get anything knocked off the MSRP? Did you have to pay freight+PDI? Doc fee?
I went to RMS yesterday and left infuriated. Not only did the guy want full MSRP, freight&pdi, and doc fee... but he actually JACKED UP the MSRP on the 620 to $10995 perhaps hoping I wouldn't notice or wouldn't know that it should actually be $10495. When I pointed it out to him that the price he was giving me was above MSRP, he said that no, $10995 was the price. And was unwilling to negotiate. So I walked out of his office to check out the price tag hanging on the bike in the showroom, which even said $10495 right on it, and at that point was so angry I just left. I've bought several new bikes before, and never had a dealer unwilling to negotiate (and actually jack UP the price), but then I've never bought a Ducati before, and never bought from RMS before.
So what have other people's experiences been, buying Ducati's or even other new bikes?
