Put black wheels on my white ss

Put black wheels from eBay, off a new s, on my white s. I like a bit more subdued look than the red wheels on white. And a pwr socket. Living the new bike.

And after taking the picture noticed the two signs in the background 😂 chiropractor and hearing tests..... I find the SS comfy and pretty quiet but many aren't....

Looks good, replacing the orange wheels was a big step

Now to get rid of the red frame.......

I think the red frame is what makes it looks nice. The red wheels are nice too but I think cleaning them will be a pain. When I had the hi viz wheel on my FZ07, that was a lot of scrubbing and even after the sweat and hard work, it was still not satisfactory.

Of all the products out there for cleaning I still find a drop or two of paraffin on a cloth works best.

Boy, you're no fun at all! Be aware that the white/red combination was most assuredly the choice of Ducati designers.

We may not be any fun, but we know what looks best on a motorcycle. And red wheels on a white bike isn't it!

The red frame, I could take it or leave it. It does look a little out of place. Maybe if there was DUCATI in red, about 3 inches in height, would make their red frame "work". Somebody good at photoshop? Please? And/or, photoshop the red frame black, pretty please?

Now that's what the white bike should of looked like. I would personally add some proper matching wheel rim tape. Something classy to break up the dark color rims. Otherwise it looks good.
