Yea you do that champ. Let me know when you bike arrives. I'll come out, and show you which end is the front and if we have time left in the day, maybe with a little help, you could figure out how to start it.

I Ride: Every Ducati I can get my hands on
It is easy to say this bike can be built for less money, but could that have been done before Ducati built it. I highly doubt it considering Ducati had the front forks custom made and did 48000 Km of testing on it to get it to where it is now...a ballistic weapon that handles like a 250.

Endo I appreciate all your input, but there is no way you could have designed and got it to the standard it is for under the asking price.

Each bike is hand built and Luigi here might have something to say about your comments..

If you were only there for the conversation. When I finished bike 1 I had it at the Long Beach show. The marketing director for DMA went over it extensively and exclaimed that while the 1299sl was a premiere bike, that I had taken it to a refined level and in essence, had been riding a 1299sl for 2 years so I hate to rain on the parade but I and a few others beat Ducati to the punch quite some time ago. I had the first set of 1299 CF bodywork from CDT. The bike actually still has the prototype set. I did the motor mods and more of them including many Corse pieces not on the 1299SL. I did top shelf Brembo, WSBK Ohlins pieces, ceramic rotors bla bla in 2015 so Luigi can hang on to his gimmicky plaque and "exclusive" garbage. I built much of bike 1 and bike 2 with the help of many on this board as well as OPP, CP NCR. We had a lighter bike with more power and higher end parts 2 years before the 1299SL and we did it for less money. I would hold off on the V4 until you see what's coming next.

Bingo we have a winner. It's about time someone figured it out. Those who do know me here and know what is going on behind the scenes are laughing their asses off. The pump is primed. Thanks in advance Duc749r. Man that was easy.

Sadly thats what matters to people is the plaque, not dollar for dollar value.

I can only think of the veyron that was built at a loss just to be the fastest street-legal production car in the world.

Let me get this right. The marketing Director for DNA told you that you took your bike to a refined level before Ducati could do it and beat them to the punch ? You REALLY want us to believe that the DNA marketing director came over to your bike and told you that you were at a level Ducati wished they could be at. Really ?

You realize what a complete imbecile you sound like, right ? I gotta say it. Everyone who is reading this is thinking what a pretentious as$clown you are.

NOLA.

P.S. You didnt build $hit. You assembled a bunch of parts other people built. Wow. Go boy.

Endo has no reasons to lie and I take his word for it if that is what happened and he does build custom parts that he shares with members BTW.
Thanks from able duc

He can be the coolest guy in the world and share pots of gold...I am calling bull$hit that the marketing director came to him and told him that. Thats so far fetched and stroking his own ego its laughable.

Come on youngR you really think that happened ? Like a yes or no.

I have no reason to think not to.

If you told me the same thing, I would believe you too. I think you just don't like him very much. Lol.
