nope, the VIN number tells you where it's built. as far as i know Ducati only build the scrambler and maybe one of the smaller monsters in Aisa

I actually don't see it being a problem as it's only assembly . So wether it's assembled in Italy or assembled in Thailand who really cares ?

It is the same with bike! Man the fuck up and ride hard! If you don't feel you can win on the bike your riding buying another isn't going to help. What will the excuse be when you lose on an R1M?

I watch people of means switch bikes like socks and then always cry how they should have kept the Pani. Especially cause they say it looks awesome going by them...I tell them I wouldn't know cause I'm the one riding it ��
Hi Thamer, I am not sure what you mean in your post. If this is aimed at me just because I went in to have a look at what I think is a nice looking bike (The R1M I mean) I think you may have misunderstood the intent of my post.

My whole post was about this salesman telling me that Ducati Panigales are now built in Thailand.

I do not race (although I do enjoy going to track days when I can) and if I did I would ride a Ducati, as I am a Ducati fan. Would I race a 1199 ? Maybe not as I may not be able to afford to fix it it when I crash. I have heard so often from guys who race that if you cannot afford to crash it then don't race it.

If I had some spare cash would I buy an R1M ? Only if I had lots and lots of spare cash as there are other bikes I would prioritise ahead of an R1M. I am currently looking at second hand K1300S or maybe the new R1200RS for doing longer trips, fit some luggage and carry a pillion. Pani does not work for me as a passenger bike.

Anyway, that was the point of the story, it was about the salesman. It was not about me buying an R1M to race because I am not fast enough on my Pani.

I am too old and scared to ride anytihing real fast.

And by the way I have fought in my war in Afghanistan, I spent Christmas there in 2008 in the snow. So I guess I understand what Patton is talking about. 34 years of service and 3 deployments and I am still serving.

Oh and I am not a man of means by any stretch of the imagination. My 2012 Panigale and an old second hand 2006 FE450 Husaberg are my only toys. My car is a 1999 Toyota Camry held together by string.
Thanks from BigBoost and Macattack

Wilkson. I am not making an inference that a bike made in Thailand is bad. That is not the point of my story. My point is that the salesman insists on absolute authority that the Panigale is built in Thailand. As far as I am aware it is built in Italy at the main factory. My neighbour a Harley Davidson owner recectly did the Ducati factory tour and saw the 1199 production line.

Ducati 899 Panigale now Thai-assembled - RM89,888!

They certainly have done the 899 as well, but not sure on the 1199.

Either way, not saying he is right per se.

The Thai assembled 899's are only for the SE Asian markets to get around the crazy import taxes they pay. 899's for everywhere else in the world are still assembled in Italy

He likely heard about the Scrambler and assumes all Duc's are from Thailand.

Technically speaking. Does Ducati make Panigales? Or just ASSEMBLE Panigales? I wonder how many parts Ducati actually makes?
