    Ducati service within Toronto?

    Forum Sponsor
    Gonna need my first major service soon on my Scrambler and wondering where I should go.

    I called maranello and they didnít even know my sixty2 has 10k intervals (as opposed to 12k on the 800)

    I donít get how people in Toronto get serviced out in Whitby or Cambridge. How do you guys get back home until your bikes done?

    Maranello is a Ducati as well as a BMW dealer.

    the service should only take an hour or so, they have coffee and a lounge upstairs, just hang out while it's being done

    Had my bike serviced at Maranello recently. They did a good job. Prices were actually reasonable. Depending on the time of year their wait list can be long. I had to book one month in advance.

    Can't talk about their service but the people in general are pleasant to deal with. Went to x2 BMW demo days and had a great time dealing with them.

    i guess i'll give them a shot again. i just don't like having to tell the service dude what the interval maintenance includes. makes me think they must not do it that often.

    Why don't you try George at Corsa Meccanica. He does valve adjustments on my 796 every 12k. Dufferin and steeles. I find maranello overpriced on everything including parts.

    I am not sure how much more the prices are for Maranello compared to other Ducati authorized service centers. I found the prices actually comparable to when I had my kawi serviced at a kawi dealership. For me it was important the service was done properly than if it cost me a little more (within reason).

    I've had one of my previous bikes serviced by Corsa before. They are ok, they didn't try to charge for anything extra that wasn't required.

    What's so special about a Ducati that AceMoto in Vaughan can't do the job right? Is it due to warranty issues?

    I see a bunch of Ducatis there http://www.acemototech.com/moto-gal-1.html, oh and they cover warranties.

    Ken's good in my books. He's a former GP Bikes tech. Every time I have been, there's almost nothing but Ducati's.
    Current: '15 Tenere ES - 30k km, '07 FZ1 - 70k km
    Past : '06 FZ6 - 115k km, '06 KTM 625 SMC - 30k km, '06 V-Strom 650 - 80k km
