That seems really low, even for all city riding. I guess if itís really congested and youíre never, ever riding it at higher speed it would work out . Iíve honestly never heard of anyone gearing a Ducati that low. I ride almost exclusively 2 lane backroads and through small towns with 3-4 stops, and 15/41 is perfect for me. For a while I tried 14/41 but decided to put the 15 back on so that if I wanted to ride faster roads it wasnít screaming in top gear. If youíre smoking clutches constantly Iím sure it would help, but fuel mileage will surely suck and it will be pretty noisy if you donít have stock exhaust.
