new F4 price

i was just looking at my local dealers website today.
i was very surprised to see the new F4 advertised with a
price of 18 500 euro. for comparision, the 09 model 1078 312 is
still listed with 22 680. can it be that the new model will be
so much cheaper?

PS: on PM request, i can send a link to the local seller here

Prices for the new bike?

The Aussie distributors website doesn't even mention they have a new bike yet!!

sounds like they are looking into mass producing them at an affordable price like Ducati did on the 1098 and I believe they have went up about $1K or so a every year since.

+1
.... as well as the % of original parts produced by Ducati S.p.A. decreasing inversely...

It's cheaper also because part of the production has been moved to China, and some particulars are not really so accurate as the model before...

Well...not completly but some parts are going to be made there, what's new?
Just for the B4 the exhaust system comes from China, and before was made by Lanfranconi (Italy), but these are the market rules, you gotta control expenditures and that's a way.

All modern bikes...including H-D...have components made in China...so do cars....even Ferrari and Porsche.

Global economics and manufacturing. Manufacturers source individual items from whomever has the best pricing at the quality level required. Mostly small items, such as wiring connectors or fasteners, but it all adds up.

Get used to it.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

They are smart with putting the price there.
In europe the sales were very low this year.
And for coming season the new beemer hypersport will take quite some sale away from Mv due to the low price , in Belgium the beemer is only 15.5 Ä , without a small discount even
Think most importent atm is finding a buyer for MV , just read in the paper this morning that Saab will go down for ever , so bad is the industry of cars and bikes atm
I wouldn,t be surprised if Mv goes under , i have already more then 20 years a bicycle firm so i know the drills , hope out the bottom of my heart i,m wrong
