New "Demo" XDIAVEL S

Melillimoto in Ocala (Sebastian) hooked me up with their 2016 demo with only 200 miles on it. With the money i saved I went ahead and had them add Termi's and plate relocation kit. I'll pick her up next week!!!.

Question, all the mods you have done what have you liked/disliked and why?

Gorgeous bike and very stunning in black! I'm curious, however, given your past Duc history as to what drove you to this model.

Main factor is age, needed a more relaxed riding style.

I hear you. I was looking at same last weekend, but (and I didn't take notes) whatever the Diavel version with the more centered foot controls and a bit more of a forward lean. Also looking at the Guzzi Audace.

Minus 3 months on warranty but no worries Melillimoto will take care of it.

Not bad, you can always get the extended warranty if you choose.
I'm picking up my Monster 1200 R friday, can't wait.

#1, for the sake of the onlookers, is to black out the medical forceps on the cambelt covers. That makes a huge difference in appearance, making it look much more smooth and mean, and not so cluttered and busy.

I have the Termi's on mine as well. They are really loud with the dB killers removed, but they still sound good with them in. I also added the "Super Comfort" seat, which looks almost identical to the stock seat, but it's a little wider and with memory foam padding, it's quite a bit more comfortable. I added the "windshield", too, just to try to reduce the glare from the instrument panel a bit.
