looks good. btw, why on earth do they paste on those decals?! Best answer would be that they look better than the final paint schemes on the plastics? Anyway, super gimicky and they dont even vaguely conceal the form of the bodywork. dumb question I guess since these "spy" shots that magically appear in the motopress sites are just early advertising.

Probably because noone would know it’s a top secret new model if they didn’t put that shit on them.

What’s with the stupid looking rear signals?

Hmm! Personally I think its a step backwards. But then, I am a huge fan of the 821/939 Hyper. So in my world it would be bloody hard to succeed:wink2:

I am not a fan of the exhaust, taillight and subframe on this model.

My first impression is did Ducati screw this bike up even before I have a chance to get one?
Not a fan of the lower slung rear end with the bulky dual exhaust and yes the rear signal light looks, well, stupid or misplaced.
Rest looks ok if not uninspiring.

I like the exhaust. Aftermarket cans will look much nicer. The subframe definitely need to be either red or black.

Those rear signals must be broken but it looks like both sides are broken exactly the same.

The cans might grow on me but I like the hiked up Termi motocross style pipe better. The trellis sub frame is better. Wonder if they shaved more weight off it more power?

2018s might be left hanging around for a deal next year!

Seems as though the underseat exhaust are mainly to support the need for Euro V Bullsh*t. Larger cat on the bottom and two cans up top to meet more stringent emissions and sound regulations. Trellis may just be there to test new exhaust system although I truly hope they go back to that style frame. Some places mentioned the use of the new Mutli 950 motor for the DVT stuff but I don't know much about that motor. Hope it looks cool, hope its awesome, if the power is up there, would make a nice hyperstrada.

looks like a good option for people who enjoy the 1100 styling. I think the rear end will look much better after the factory plate holder and signals are relocated.
