A non-ABS ST1050 would cost just under 14000 euro (over US$17000) here. 
Registration tax is 2100 euro (nearly $2700) which is added to the pretax 
sale price and then 21% sales tax is applied to the lot. A tax on a tax!

This works out at a pretax price of about 9400 euro ($12000)

MRSP on the non-ABS 1050 in the US is $10,899.
