Sorry - Back to even. I'm a fan the satin finish.

The first time I compared my glossy DP CF with the satin CF on the RSV4 Factory, I was hooked. The DP glossy carbon always looked cheap next to it.

I prefer the "matte" or "satin" looking carbon, looks more professional? Imo...
Looks like the glossy wet look is falling behind lol.

There's a lot of bling to red paint on my S as it is. The gloss look has been done so many times before that the offset of the satin finish is refreshing in a minimalist way. The advantages of the CF w/o the " hey, look at all of my carbon" gloss appeal.

I think that the key in either way is to have continuity of your choice; all gloss or all satin, but do not mix.

You are correct Larry! I just posted this link on all my other Ducati websites to bring in the entire population from around the world! I am sure this will cause controversy and strife, however it needed to be done! LMAO

I prefer "satin" finish. It's a little more "glossy" than "matte".

But it's a close call and I loved my gloss carbon SF ;-)

To add my 2 cents opinion, i think gloss also works better on your tri and satin suits more the full red S

Wow that's a tough one... I leaned to the stealth of the matte/satin. Close call for me
