|IL_MOSTRO||I highly doubt the Oakville, ON dealer sells 200 bikes per year. GP Bikes might get close to that.|

|summitboy||Ya. These companies should stop this BS. We just lost our dealer in Calgary. Ducati wants a Calgary dealer but they want 150-200 bikes sold a season which isn't gonna happen when you can buy Jap bikes way cheaper. These companies dictate and set all the rules. The dealers get screwed ! It leaves a bad taste in the consumers mouth and the company ultimately loses money in the end. No reason for these big price gaps. It has nothing to do with supply and demand. It's whatever the market will bare ! I'm sure if you look at powersports numbers they keep declining. People can only spend so much and then they quit. Ducati will be one of the first to disappear in the future !|

|Micalo-H||I was to understand it was a minimum of 3 years, which is the same as KTM. DNA said its to protect the Canadian dealer base (Bullshit). I was in Italy last fall at Ducati headquarters & talked to VP of Italian operations about it. He said that as long as DNA keeps producing the numbers (in sales) things wouldn't change....sad but true|

|summitboy||I think the year number is 5 years to do it legit. I would just grab the service printout. It's 3-4 pages long with nothing on it. They just look at the line that says "No service campaigns". I don't think it matters on the year if you do it this way. It's a gamble if it doesn't work but RIV seems to take it no problem.|

Does anyone know if this pertains to a "used" 2011 Ducati?
Thanx in advance.
I think I found my answer on another thread. 2008 & up, used or new. Them "F" ers at DNA can kiss my ass.
If someone doesnt outbid me in the next couple of Hrs I may own another Duc. One that I wont be able ride unless i pay one of the local dealerships a additional $500 for a piece of paper.

service history printout worked for me this month.
Many US dealers don't know about the ransom.

I just imported a Hyper to Canada that I bought from a member on this forum...and LOVING IT!
My not-so local (125miles away) Ducati dealership wouldn't issue a recall letter without seeing the bike (which I couldn't legally drive there because it wasn't yet plated or titled). Once they confirmed VIN# etc, they would fax a confirmation to Ducati NA, who would then issue the recall clearance letter so I could import it into Canada. The charge? A cool $500. Nice ca$h grab Mr Ducati.
I was able to contact a dealer in the USA, faxed a copy of the title and they ran the VIN# in the service/warranty system to confirm there were no outstanding service campaigns against the bike. A printout was then faxed to me, and I sent it of to the 'Registrar of Imported Vehicles'. Presto. Regi complete, $500 in my jeans and not the Federales...
Try that angle...

|Jbone||Guess I didn't make myself clear. I know I need the letter.... what Im asking is what year(s) DNA is willing to release said letter for. I've heard people have been denied the letter from DNA when trying to import 2008 and newer models from the US to CANADA, and wondering if thats still the case or if DNA has relented some.|
