Hey all,

First time Ducati owner, picked up the SuperSport S in late may and have clocked around 3k miles on it so far. Absolutely fantastic bike. Previous bikes owned/ridden was a couple of CBR 600rrs (one street and one track), Super duke 990 (only ever used it on track), and just got rid of a 2009 FZ6R that I circled the country with last season.

I'd gush about how the ergos are the perfect mix of sporty and comfortable but I'm sure you all know. The bike in general is just an absolute blast to ride although the red rims are pretty much impossible to keep clean.

Welcome mate . Re the red wheels if you take time to clean and then wax them they are easier to clean each time I added about 4 layers of wax now I just a microfibre cloth each time and there clean nothing sticks to the polished wax surface.

Rhino, do you have a favorite wax you can suggest?

I use the Tec wax for the whole bike (yes on the white mat finish) it uses nano technology it's excellent at keeping the dirt off and protects. The wax is the best you can get and is expensive but it bladdy works well and you use so little of it I've had that tub for years and used it on 3 motorcycles 1 BMW and my truck and it's still half full. Highly recommend

I've been using a can of Speed Wax on all of the painted surfaces and the windshield and those red rims. If the surface is clean you can just spray it on and wipe it clean. I usually buff it a few hours later. I was so impressed I did all my helmets and even my car!

Welcome to the forum. I have been using the "HondaBrite" cleaner on the wheels with good success. Its pretty cheap and while its not officially considered a wax , it does have some wax-like properties. Most bike shops carry it and its pretty cheap.

Where do you ride? I did about 120mi this weekend in Harriman and Bear Mt.

I just use a Swiffer and dust them down after each ride. Whole bike gets washed when the chain needs cleaning.
