SS1000F a good deal?

A dealership is offering the SS1000F as "Racing Order Programming" at $9250. The catch is since its a racing deal, and therefore NO factory warranty, backed by Ducati. supposedly, purchased off the floor with the street trim. IS this a good idea to purchase without a warranty, whether you end up racing or just as a street bike? Do you think all the ducati dealers offer this program?

I don't think It's a good deal. Plus, I may be wrong on this, but I don't think you can register it and put it on the street. There's usually some great deals out there on 1000's and all you'd have to do is strip it down. It's not like that bike comes with full Ohlins, or any other trick parts. It's just like the street version without the necessities.

Well, supposedly, it's off the floor with the street trim. I'll inquire about it and registration for the street. But, is it a good idea to purchase with the 2 year warranty? Is the SS1000 solid enought not too worry about warranties?

Beaudry's inventory shows they have a leftover '04 for $9999. There are probably other dealers with remaining stock at good prices. I'd go that route. Resale would probably be better on the "non-race" bike, too.

This is my question answered by the dealer:
Ron, the bike is in full street trim and can be registered. Anything that is
made by Ducati that has the 1000cc 2 valve engine is a Dual Spark i.e. DS so
to answer your question this is a SS1000DS.

any thoughts if this is a good deal without the warranty? Not sure what I could get for 2006 pricing down from the $10995 MSRP.

Something's fishy here... the "race-only" bike has no headlight, turn signals, etc., and a much lower retail price than you've been quoted. If I had to guess, I'd say the dealer put a couple of parts on a $8,000 *retail* bike and is now trying to charge you plenty for it.

The SuperSport is a GREAT bike but NOT a good seller. You should be able to get a screamin deal from somebody. Get off the internet and make a few phone calls. '04, '05, '06, they're all pretty much the same bikes. You[re never going to find out what you can buy one for if you don't ask.

Check around and see what you can turn up as far as bikes in stock. Again, Beaudry lists a street-legal, all-parts-included, warrantied bike for a few hundred more. Get one shipped, grab your trailer and pick it up or get a cheap plane ticket and ride it home.
