I Ride: Duc 1199 Base w/ABS Tricolore
My New Standard Tricolore

First able, I love the look of the tricolore, but I could not afford the price tag.

Second able, I truly like the standard suspension. IMO it feels more planted (the front), when pushed hard.

So, we the help of some members, some creativity and trial and errors, I built my tricolore. I am planning to upgrade the wheels in the near future, but I kind of like the from fender in red (a bit more exotic)

Thoughts? (no haters please)

Beautiful! 2 reasons I bought the base, manual suspension (one less thing to go wrong, no funny tubes), and the red fender!

Loved the bike!. Thanks for the kind comments.

A future tricolore owner, got pissed (he doesn't even have the bike yet). I just like the paint scheme.

So, the dilemma is: S Wheels or Standard wheels?

It's kinda like putting a DINAN badge on a bone stock 325is, but it's your bike. Do with it what you will

Looks good

My only issue and I cannot tell from the photos is if you badge it something it is not eg calling a base an S etc

I see your point. Like I mentioned I like the paint schema.

I wanted a tricolore with the Marzocchi suspension. Since Ducati doesn't provide one, I am building it myself. So, it will be a tricolore with an "Upgraded" suspension (lol). All other components will be the same, including the wheels. No harm intended to tricolore owners.
