And prepare yourself for the electronic failures, glitches, and niggles along the way as well. Your monthly payments only cover the loan, there will be additional expenses as the odometer counts up. It's the complexity of those machines that gets in the way.

Beyond that, great bike! Cheers!

Ignore Tim and Rex. You won't need to fix anything. You might want to change a few things to fit your needs but for most of us these bikes are trouble free.

Im taking a different approach on this bike (I hope LOL). Ive had numerous track bikes and was an avid track rider, dumped tons of money in to them and time.
On this bike ill most likely get the 42T sprox, tires, taller windscreen, gps/phone mount, radiator guards, panniers and maybe an Oberon Slave master cylinder. I truly think the bike looks good as is and pretty much has everything I would want. I dont mind having to pay for the main service intervals, but I do hope the bike behaves good.
What worries me is that 6-7 years ago I had a Hyper and on this same forum not many people complained about the reliability of Ducati in general. But now I see the same guys that didnt complain, complaining, lol. So that kinda tells me either Ducati owners have had it and finally admit that ducs have issues, or bikes have gotten worse. Time will tell. All I know is that I baby my bikes and am pretty mechanically inclined, so that should help.

I've already warned him about my bias ... he probably figured out I'm to be ignored.

I don't get on well with the robot races.
