This is my understanding as well.By the way though, the tank issue is handled under the EPA warranty which is 5 years.
If it is covered for 5 years, then I will be ok for a while. $812 is not bad at all. I wanted to just find out what companies are offering the warranty and what experiences people have had with them.I bought my GT used a few months back and since the warranty expires in Apr. '10, I called my dealer to ask about the extended warranty and was quoted something like $812. That's a lot less than I thought it would be and seems like a good investment given the cost of fixing\replacing things on our babies

Searched the forum and found a lot of threads re extended warranties and confirmed that Ever Red is essentially a Ducati factory warranty they offer through a partnership with GE Money - Warranty Services started back in Sept. '07-...The name Ever Red makes me wonder if they have some sort of relationship with Ducati a la Foremost Insurance
DGJ - when you get a choice, it sounds the like the one to go with would be the one the service guy recommends. Who's a better authority, right? That's helpful to know you can probably shop Duc dealers too.I purchased my Western extended plan at Pro-Italia, the premier ducati dealer in the Los Angeles Area. They sell both Ever Red and Western. Ever red was more expensive, yet the service guy recommended Western, simply because they offered the exact same coverage as the Ever Red, but you got a longer term for less money. He also said that the western people were less prone to question a warranty claim but that GE was pretty much the FBI on every case. finally, as I mentioned, with Western, you can choose to get the warranty work at any proper moto shop, not just a ducati dealer, whereas Ever Red makes you go to the dealer. So you have more choice.
you still have to purchase the plan at a ducati dealer. You can also negotiate with them, because the retail price is more than I paid. I guess certain dealers are willing to give discounts. you should call pro-italia and get a quote, I don;t think you have to buy the plan at your local dealer.
there you go.
