I suppose it's to be expected as there's no new information and nothing new from Ducati.
I'm eagerly looking forward to seeing some road tests in the near future. Production is due to start next month or so my dealer assures me.

But if they do what most vehicle manufacturers do, they run a batch of production machines down the line to ensure everything's in place for volume production to start. Checking parts locations, assembly fixturing and tooling, work orders and so on.

These often end up as press bikes and dealer training. I understand Ducati run all bikes down the same line in small batches. Which is what Triumph do.

I'll be able to see for myself in just under a month.

I've been checking non-stop and can't see anything new at all. Patience and day-dreaming is all we're subjected to for now unfortunately. :(

They prolly don't want to take any wind out of the sails of the new MS.

I reckon Ducati have made a big mistake sticking a 19"? inch front wheel on the ministrada. They should have put a 17" front wheel on, and then pitched it as virtually the same as a SS, but just with a compete upright riding position for those who want that. I don't know a single person who has an adventure bike (and they are popular among my riding groups) that take it off-road.

The main comment about having a 19" front wheel you hear from this group are just complaints about the very limited tire options.

Sold my Monster 1100 EVO this week and used that money as a deposit on a red SS s. The anticipation is part of the fun of it.

Ministrada? Its only smaller in engine capacity, everything else, including a high seat is still there. So wouldn't have done for me I'm afraid.
