Servicing costs are still high

"Ducati ownership was the perception the bikes are more expensive to service than others so extending the miles between services was seen as a way of changing this." My experience here is that they are just as expensive to service as they used to be. Extending the interval has just meant a higher bill at that interval. Belts are due every 2yrs and only a fool would ignore that - though both sets ive had done have looked brand new when they come off. And when the belts themselves are over £100 its little wonder servicing is still considered expensive, by me at least. In context, the simple belt service on my modern Duke was more than my Honda's big service with the valve clearances checked.
