Only one key fob included? (just got a new 2018 Enduro Pro)

I just picked up a 2018 Enduro Pro but havent had a chance to ride it. Hoping later today after work or definitely weekend.
I only was given one key fob with the bike and asked the salesman if there was another - the bag he gave me had the manuals, key tumblers, a red key but no fob. Do these just come with one? thanks

My 2016 Multi came with just one, as I guess all Ducati's do. It concerned me not to have a spare, so I ordered one. Seems to me that two should be provided at purchase.

From what you wrote, you have received two keys: one Fob and one red key which which is electronic and will start the bike when placed near the antenna.

One fob, one red nearfield key... that's it.

What Ducati owner would ever let anyone else ride their bike... that's just crazy talk. So... you only need one fob (and the red key in case the battery goes dead in the fob)

Ducati will happily sell you a 2nd powered keyfob, for around $400.00 including labor for pairing it to the bike.

Semi on-topic. I found the key blade on the fob to be weak at its attachment point. I snapped it off the first week I had the bike. After getting that fixed, I decided I didnít want to use the fob for my day to day opening of the gas tank or the luggage.

I got a couple non-chipped keys made using the code on the red key tag. Dude at keys4urride.com can make them and mail them to you for not much money. So now Iím less likely to bust an expensive to replace fob, and if I do something dumb like leave a key in one of the pannier locks, no one can start the bike with it. Just something to think about.

Or when you break the key off the fob you can do a cheaper solution like this: https://ducatipartsunlimited.com/pro...hands-free-fob. Takes a bit of work on your end as well to fit the key but it's a lot better than a whole new fob. I have considered a non-chipped key for luggage as well.

I have a non-chipped key strictly for gas and panniers as a back-up.

Good link, thanks. I think you can beat that price at a good locksmith shop. They place I get my keys cut has those blades 'cause it's actually an Audi fob, or at least the same key components as an Audi. Or from some brand in the Volkwagen family, maybe not Audi. It's been a couple years since the guy showed me the parts.

You cannot pair a second key fob. I purchased one, had my AD try to pair it and in the end, after a week of trying, they told me it could not be done.
