I own a 2016 S Red! And the first complaint is that i have to wait 2 weeks to arrive!!!!!
Just a recommendation for your new bike, check the manual for the running in instructions. There are very specific requirements. I have learned over the years that the sales people sometimes lack the required knowledge. When we purchased the two 2015 Multis, we were told by the salesman that we need to keep the revs below 7500 rpm for the first 1000 KM. The first thing I did when we got home with the bikes was to check if there are specific manufacturer requirements in the manual. And indeed there was. Here is what Ducati recommends for the 2015 1200S:
Maximum rotation speed
Rotation speed for running-in period and during standard use (rpm):
1) up to 1,000 km;
2) from 1,000 to 2,500 km.
Up to 1,000 km
During the first 1000 km, keep an eye on the rev counter. It should never exceed: 5,500÷6,000 rpm. During the first hours of riding, it is advisable to run the engine at varying load and rpm, though still within recommended limit. To this end, roads with plenty of bends and even slightly hilly areas are ideal for a most efficient running-in of engine, brakes and suspensions. For the first 100 km use the brakes gently. Avoid sudden or prolonged braking. This will allow the friction material on the brake pads to bed in against the brake discs.
For all mechanical parts of the motorcycle to adapt to one another and above all not to adversely affect the life of basic engine parts, it is advisable to avoid harsh accelerations and not to run the engine at high rpm for too long, especially uphill. Furthermore, the drive chain should be inspected frequently. Lubricate as required.
From 1,000 to 2,500 km
At this point, you can squeeze some more power out of your engine. However never exceed 7,000 rpm.
Important: During the whole running-in period, the maintenance and service rules recommended in the Warranty Card should be observed carefully. Failure to follow these instructions releases Ducati Motor Holding S.p.A. from any liability whatsoever for any engine damage or shorter engine life.
Strict observance of running-in recommendations will ensure longer engine life and reduce the likelihood of overhauls and tune-ups.
