I might be the only one here with this sort of thinking but once I take delivery those red wheels are being wrapped to black. There's just something about having black wheels on a white Ducati that I like. Always like that look with sporty cars and on bikes that will surely work well, ESPECIALLY on a ducati of this caliber.

You very well could be the only one here who's thinking of wrapping those red wheels black. :D

I actually prefer red wheels on a white body, makes the white pop out even more.

Wheel color is one thing, but I'm a little surprised Ducati didn't opt for forged aluminum wheels on the S model like they have on other model lines. It must have been a price point issue.

You can get black wheels on a Honda Rebel (they're standard!) but not red.. Just sayin'. Joking aside, the panda look works for some vehicles, I'm sticking with red.

I though the R bikes got the forged wheels. S bikes usually stop at the upgraded suspension.

I agree with Snyped and would prefer the black wheels on the white bike. My preference is the red bike but if there was only a white available at the time those red wheels wouldnt be there for too long. Wih the red wheels it looks like a lego bike to me.

Bane.

At the moment I have a Multi 1200 DVT from 2015 and maybe I will buy a SS as a second bike but first i would like to see the bike with golden wheels. Could somebody photoshop a red SS with golden Marchesini Wheels and a short numberplate holder? I'm not an artist with PS, so I can use any help.

I made a few (very bad) photoshops with a rear Marchesini wheel but I like the way it looks! The last one is with a wheel of a Monster 1100. I would like to know if it would fit on the SS. What is your opinion. Not the ps but the bike :wink2:>:) Maybe some of you are more experts with PS.
