I don't think that there will be any chances for the R model in 2018.
50 miles is nothing, what kind of deal are they offering you ?
Will it include the 'full' 2 year warranty ?
Have you test ridden the bike yet ?
Took the 2016 Demo for a test ride. My only complaint was that with the sun shining I could not see the digital screen, at all. If I wanted to squint to get my RPM reading, I would have to divert my attention from the road longer than what would be considered safe. Is this how they all are? Furthermore, I thought this was a full color display? All I saw was a bunch of faded, unrecognizable data. Most importantly, with this screen issue be corrected in 2018, or is this something people just accept and live with?
Prices are as follows:
2016 1200R Demo w/50 miles: $16,500. This bike only comes with 7 months remaining on the 2 year warranty.
New 2017 1200R: $17,931. Full 2 year warranty.
Are you sure the 2018 R's are getting styled to look 'normal', like the Base & S models? I actually prefer the striping on the current R's. I'm new to Ducati, so I apologize for not being well versed on the features. How important is cornering ABS & anti-wheelie? Think the 2018's will get a new screen, one you can actually see?
Given the above pricing, what would you suggest doing?
