Price

So just called a local Calgary Ducati dealer who said delevery should be May 2015 and all in with tax = $12,864 for the Urban Enduro
Not exactly the deal they make it out to be.

You probably already know this but the Trans-Canada (Hwy#1) passes through Regina and Calgary.

If your riding more of an adventure style bike, with a center stand, it shouldn't be a problem.
