best Ducati dealer in Houston? Why?

May I inquire: which is the best Ducati dealer in Houston? I am pondering buying a Monster 1200 S (new), perhaps trading one of my other Italian bikes (no dealer for either Guzzi or MV).

I am interested in sales experience, after-sales warranty performance, quality of management, quality of parts department and of course the critical mechanic skills required to keep a bike running right. And, I want a dealer that will stay in business and not go poof or drop Ducati as a franchise.

There is a dealer on the SW Freeway, and one on 45N. What is your vote please?

Thanks in advance!

Great service, very down-to-earth, and they LISTEN to what you want.

I don't own a Ducati, but I know folks who do and who have purchased from this dealer. And if I decide to get one, I'm definitely buying from them.

I took my friend there to get his first bike and they have impeccable service and very skilled mechanics. They do a lot of custom builds on their Ducatis, but also have stock ones if that's your preference.

If you want to see some of their stock builds, check out their IG page (if you have IG). Hope this helps!

I've dealt with V1 and I can say they were up front with the out-the-door price and did not pull the "you should put a deposit if you want this bike" which is always refreshing.

I believe Team X-treme is the only Moto Guzzi Dealer in houston
