No, they are located right in Minneapolis on Lyndale ave. I've never been in there so I don't have any experience with them, plus I live 10 miles from a ducati dealer and I recently sold my Multistrada.

Better than Moto Primo which I would recommend you stay away from. I heard they were formed out of Silverback??? dont know for sure.

If you are just looking to buy the bike I would shop every dealer in MN and Wisconsin. I bought my 748 from a dealer in Chicago.

I have bought parts from Delano and they were not idiots.

I have sworn off all Ducati Dealerships unless I need OEM parts because of bad experiances with Moto Primo.

Ducati Minneapolis is a great shop. They are co owned by the guys that ran Silverback performance and have vast V-twin tuning knowledge and they all basically live and breath V-twin performance. They are all stand up dudes and from what I have heard they will bend over backwards to help a customer.

I would buy from them in a heart beat and I live in oklahoma. I'm sure wingnutt or Whitw WIngs will chime in here. they both know the guys better than I do.

Word on the track last weekend is that the co-founder of DUC of Minneapolis FRED is no longer with the shop. I think they do decent work and if you're just buying a bike, who cares. Just buy a used bike for cheaper...

That is sad news. any idea where he went as he was who Tom loved for tuning the RC IIRC.

No clue yet, it was just the other week. I called to get some info (love the moto gossip) and got no where.

Appreciate the feedback guys. Thought about trading off the SMC but the kid doesn't want me to let it go. The garage is full and I could really use the room.....just not riding them any more.

MotoPrimo wouldn't even bother returning his emails....
