Picked up my new 1198S today!! Updated with Pics!

I have to say I was a bit excited going to get it. I can't believe how freakin' nice this machine is. It's truly a piece of art. The power delivery is amazing. I can't wait until I can actually get on it (600 mile break in period). I hope to be able to ride with more Ducati riders now that I have my bike.

Actually I wanted the red frame with the black bike. I really like the 1098 from last year like that. I guess I have to live with it though....lol

Congrats! Nice color! You'll love it.

I'm taking mine in for the 600 mi service this week.

I'm still glad I got the bronze frame.

I picked up the same bike as well......let the mods begin. The first kicker is the stock exhaust....3K to get rid of unwanted heat. Then it's off to learn the traction control.....do ya set it on Haga.....or fabritzio, only you can decide. I've nutted myself 3 times so far.....good luck on the DTC settings, and remember, when taking off from a light,even the #1 setting will shut down the power if you yank the front wheel anything under 30 kmh.

I picked it up from Euro Cycles.
Sat_Duc,
I was at Eurocycles on Saturday too (was checking out a Street Triple). We probably just missed each other.

I live less than 10 minutes away.

Good luck with the Triple.

I'm gonna be up there tomorrow I think. Need to pick up a couple things.

Great lookin bike! I think the bronze frame makes it look more exotic...especially
on a black bike. I've got the red/bronze, and I've grown to like the color. After having a 1098S, and a 1098 w/red frames, it took a little while to get used to it.

Now get out there, and get the shine off those tires!
