Min 20 secs (according to manual) and you can ride, 1 min max, just ride below 8k until fully warm.

I live in an area with neighbours living all around and they haven't complained once.

A Pani will never be as loud as a typical Harley. Sportbikes just have a bad rap and will always be complained about. That's the life we choose...oh well.

I own both and my Duke is just as loud (my fatboy has a Freedom Outlaw 2-1). Harley's over here (Oz) get more attention from the boys in blue.

I think your response here is the right one. I don't own a Ducati, but I do have a Ninja 1000 with a full Akro system. My driveway is right next to my neighbors bedroom. If I go out early, which I sometimes do, I don't start the bike until I'm ready to drive off right away.

I live in a townhouse and turn my bike off as soon as I get near the front. I then push it around back and into my house. Easy enough until I go to bring it back out, I have to push it up a hill to get it back out onto the street. Good thing the Pani is light! It sucks but I can't imagine turning it on and it echoing through out the neighborhood. So far so good and I haven't had any complaints.

I think that 06:30 is too early to let your bike idle for even one minute. If I'm leaving that early, I start it and leave. I had a KTM RC8R with full race exhaust that I started one afternoon for the first time in my driveway. My next door neighbor came running out because she thought her house was falling down. When she found out it was my bike, she started laughing.

Saturday I had to run into work for little bit and it seemed like a great day to ride in with the sunny weather and no traffic. So at 6:30am I got my gear out, rolled the bike out and fired her up. Then finished my coffee, threw my jacket on turned around and there was a strange lady in my driveway...

She said that they work all week and my bike is too loud and to please start it and just leave. I said that I work too and am going there now. Sorry that I woke you, that was not my intention but I'm doing nothing wrong here. She walked away...

She lives across the street, two houses down. My bike was never rev'd and was idling less than 10 min.

Next time tell the strange lady that you will indeed take a picture of her on your panni

It is a little loud for a quiet neighborhood. I leave at 6:30 and I start her and idle out of the driveway and down the street for 30 secs

I ride everyday to work. Fire my Pani up at 6:15am every morning. I don't let it idle hardly at all. When I leave I try to roll through the neighborhood until I get to the main road then all bets are off. But you apologized and she'll get over it.
+1 I idle my bike out even short shifting to stay quiet. Once out on main roads I go soft revs till shes up to temp. I have a neighbor w/a new ford 1/2 ton he put some sort of redneck exhaust and a remote starter. I dislike it, I'm sure others feel the same about my bike. If its a normal time I will let her idle 2min at most.

I'd tell her to go f#ck herself...
