i have its not that bad..i clean my bikes regularly anyways so not that big of a problem..i might opt out for a matte black one anyways and pd the rims red...but matte black looks like poop after a while :/

1098 its bad with 7500 valve intervals..848 wet clutch and intervals of 15k really not bad at all..pro italia said that 15k service runs about 600 bucks to check the valves..plus my buddy is becoming a cert tech so im sure ill save a lot of coin right there

I might pull the trigger on a Panigale this year, but I'm still a fan of the dry clutch... Too used to the noise I guess... :laugh

I've never really commuted on a Ducati for very long, and never had one as my primary bike, so I never really concerned myself with the mileage thing.

Streetfighters are pimp. Want one in all black and mirrors removed.

Thought about buying one last year, but knew I had to get a bigger windshield and fairings because of all the highway runs I do.

the panigale superleggera :hump panigale really is an awesome bike i test rode one when it first came out for shits and gigs...love the 200 rear tire look

and i know how you feel about the dry clutch..but when i rode the 1098 with a dry clutch my hand was hurting lol not being a bitch but cant see myself enjoying the bike riding daily with it...eventually i wanna pick up a 999r and have that as my living room showcase/weekend rider

Panigale S is hardly regular... :laugh

For the money, I'm not convinced the Superleggera is at the same level the D16RR was (same price)...

That said, I've been seriously contemplating getting rid of my 1098R to get a D16RR before they are impossible to find...
