Breaking in complete!
 
1st service done today. Opened full throttle in 4th gear got a shock from 8.000rpm to 10.000rpm, amazing torque perhaps it pushes like any other commercial vehicle on Earth. :o

I think mine was done 2 miles in ;)

Now go beat that thing like it owes you money.

I don't know how you had the patience to not get on it right away..?

That is like going out the first time with a beautiful Italian Supermodel that wants to get down with it and you just want to hold hands LOL The Panigale begs to be ridden hard..

I think I rode about 45 minutes at medium RPM level before I started gradually letting it step up on RPM at 1000 increments for a few seconds then let off and ride for a little bit then step it up again until I finally hit 10500 RPM Then I let it cool down overnight and did the same thing the next day and it was broken in. I think after a few heat cycles it more or less is broken in for the most part.. The metallurgy they have nowadays and the precise tolerances allow them to break in pretty quickly..
From what I have read the factory guys rev them up to the red line while still on the dyno before they certify them ready to go.

Everyone has their own theories..

They do that to all bikes before it gets packaged and shipped out. This is my first Ducati and I was told it has a blk box that record like what BMW do.
Have a 2012 zx10r and the first day I rode it out of the dealer. I hit all gears hitting around 11rpm
Was thinking of doing the same with the Duc but that blk box freaks me out.
what do you all think is the best to break in the Duc?

There is also a white box under the tank, that records your speed and sends it to the police department for every time you go over the speed limit. And a pussay magnet behind the dash that is self explanatory.

The legendary "black box". :D

I broke mine in according to the manual, just commuting to work on the freeway made it easy to keep the rpms lowish.

Just think of it as 600mi of foreplay, when I finally got to open it up after the first service it was that much more glorious. ;)
