Get it checked out. Get it fixed.

Then depending on your financials, either sell it now or wait a little it then sell it. I dropped and scratched new cars and bikes after I bought them before. I was lucky to sell the bike and the scratches on the car rubbed away with some scratch-off.

It's only material, and there are a lot of worst things that could have happened to your bike and yourself. Unless you are going to place it in a glass case, it will wear. Regardless of what you do, it will age and will be replaced by a subsequent model.

What kind of responses are you looking for to make you feel better?

Good luck.

I am looking for honest opinions whatever they might be. Thanks for sharing.

You say you do not trust the mechanics even from Ducati. Well you need to sell that bike asap because it takes a lot of work to keep these bikes together. Read all the post on here about all the problems and all the recalls. If you don't trust the mechanics you are in for a lot of heartache.

Seismic,

In reference to your confidence: Practice the kickstand deployment at least 10 times. It's very easy for them to flip back up if not pushed ALL the way down; they're designed to do that. It's also a very light kickstand with not much feel to it. Definitely feels different than my Harley kickstands. I always look at it as I deploy the kickstands and make sure they are down. And make sure you don't park downhill! Next time keep your leg out of it; you're lucky you didn't hurt your leg which is worth a lot more than your bike, OK?

Nothing wrong with the bike equipment-wise; they're a lot more rugged than that. I dropped my 1199R from 15 mph on the street and once from a 60 mph lowside on the track. They held up quite well. Smaller pieces will break but not the major pieces.
Thanks from Seismic

That Honda spray polish really does wonders.
