First proper ride today...

What a fab bike!!

Although cold, and the traction control lighting up every second, the Duc got a good blast of 100 miles or so. Super comfy, plenty of low down torque, and great mpg compared to the blade...

She handles brilliant as well, so quick to turn in and soaks up the bumps fantastically.

Another bonus is that the previous owner has spent a mint on the bike, with every available extra, including heated grips!!

All in all, well chuffed.

Man, that sounds so good. I can't wait to get a CW on mine.

Glad you are enjoying it Si.

Have you checked the TC level in the settings; I have never noticed mine come on?

Glad you are enjoying - bought mine to give me different oprions as have an Aprilia RSV4 factory. The only thing I would suggest is if you can get forged rims (marchesini off a 1098) you will really like how flickable it can be.

That seems wrong. Either you are riding like a total noob, and I suspect not, or there is something awry. Or you're riding on a pool of oil on top of ice.

Have you thought about resetting the tyre calibration (page 178 in the manual, although this forum has people explain how they did it)?

She's not an Italian supermodel; they're high maintenance.
She's the cute Italian girl from school you wish you kept in contact with...

Nowhere near as quick as the blade ( didn't expect it be) , but had the traction control kicking in all the time and smoother than the 1199 I took out. Ergos are fabulous, Iíll be taking it on 3,500 mile round trip to Italy this year from the UK... so thatíll give a better idea. Feels lighter than 200kg, and less front biased that Iím used too... it feels sedate until I clicked 120mph on the speedo.... lovely. Wouldnít go into neutral from standstill, but did rolling on..thatís my only caveat. Looks like previous owner has added all the optional Ducati catalogue, carbon everything and Evotech rad guard and levers.... the only thing Iíll add is a carbon belly fairing from Ilmberger...

Can anyone tell me if itís got the larger touring screen??
Sweet looking bike. You will love how easy it is to ride and it will pull the front wheel of the ground under acceleration. It is a super fun bike.
