I'm not sure about the shop there. But I've been to Ducati Tokyo West, Motocorse, Utsunomiya, Sendai, a few others..they've all been pretty helpful. Sometimes too helpful. Theres that initial barrier, but if you ask about something minuscule, thats when the pamphlets and free brochures come out. Plus, theres probably more americans and whoever else on ducati in tokyo and north than in Kyoto. But I know its out of your way. Next time you hop on the train and in tokyo, stop thru Ducati Tokyo West and ask about something for your bike. If anything you should notice a difference in how customers are treated.
Have you been to the MotoGP race at Motegi before?
Right now, I think the closest I may get down there is if a friend and I have the balls to try a track day at suzuka. But definitely MotoGP. Marquez will have title wrapped up by then tho!
But again, I understand Tokyo and north of it is a long way from you.
