Any rumors about an updated bike? The hyper 1100 is also missing, but we've seen those spy pics already.
Thinking the same thing when Ducati released the new monster, all versions were dropped for a year except the limited edition tri-color.IMHO, they will dump it in 2013 and only offer the 848 model. It just makes sense with the recent updates to the website with the arctic white pani, etc.
I tend to agree. I don't think it makes sense from a production line standpoint to keep the one oddball power plant for only one bike (not their bestseller either) and I don't really see them doing an 1199 SF. This may have been the last of the big motor SFs.its more likely it will use the new Testastretta 11° DS engine rather than the 1199 engine...they use to do that...
At first they wanted to get rid of the 1098 engines, they built the SF with the superbike engine and they built the 1198 engine for the superbikes...
Now they are running out of 1098 engines, probably they will build the new SF on the multistrada engine with 3 different maps, dtc, abs etc...

I'm torn between ordering a white Pani vs keeping my 2010 SF. The three things I love about the SF are notably absent in the Pani (rattly dry clutch, trellis frame, low end grunt/general hooliganism). .Goodbye to the dry clutch - your comforting rattle will be missed. Trading in a trademark for longer service intervals.... I think I will hang on to my 2009 sf for a while. (sorry, 2010)
It's painful to say it but that's what they did with the Pani and the RR.Considering the Tuono now uses the RSV4 mill, slightly detuned and the Tuono is considered my various mags as the new king of the nakeds, I suspect to see a more potent mill to compete with the Aprillia. I think they will want to use the pani tech. Why put in a motor that will not top the Ape?
