Johan,

Nice pair of Ducs! Congratulations! Now, how about a few more words to those of us who are still waiting for the call from the dealer? I will take "fantastic" as a good first impression, but what did you notice on your ride? Please give us the good, the bad and the ugly. :)

first thought during the first ride :x i am in love
this is a very light steering bike, it goes where you look at
i think i could be hours in the seat off this bike, sits very comfortable
i was afraid the ohlins would be to hard for the "bad"streets in Belgium, but its sporty without beiing to hard.
quick shifter is also very nice, very smooth when you make more revs, (+4500) first to second i do manually
shifting down is also nice and makes a sporty sound.
i will put the akrapovic exhaust on later

Congrats and thanks for the comments! Mind if I ask how tall you are? How well balanced do you find the bike? I'm barely 5'6" - and my Monster 696 was the perfect size for me, and I know this seat height is ever so slightly higher - just wondering how its going to feel once I get on it - which I cannot wait for!!

When you turn the headlights on low beam, do both lights come on or only one?
Great question, Mike. According to page 314 of the owners manual, one bulb is an H1 low beam on the throttle side of the bike and the other an H7 high beam on the clutch side. So unlike the Panigale, I think on low beam only one headlight is illuminated. How very Honda-like of Ducati.

Thanks. Disappointed to learn that.

I think the owners manual is incorrect, I always thought it was a strange combination. Truth is I think they are both H7 so as far as I'm aware its one bulb for dip and both bulbs on for high beam.

Perhaps an owner (one of those few lucky people to have their bikes, **** it) can confirm.
