Ducati Monster Maintenance  

People wondering about buying a Ducati often ask, "I've heard Ducatis are expensive and unreliable - do they cost a lot to keep up?' So by way of an answer, I've listed the scheduled and unscheduled maintenance costs.

I have not listed discretionary purchases ("Bling"), extra tires for trackdays, or the cost of repairing two minor tipovers.
