That kid in the front row looks a little young to fork out $80k for a bike.

I just wonder how much Ducati will take this DNA into the new V4?? I would be nice.
Don't they have quite a bit in the new 1299R?

@SuperDuc29 the 1299R is going to be good for sure but it won't shift as quickly nor be nearly as light as either Superleggera.

Pic of me on Melandri's bike at Mugello

So here is a shot they got and sent to me. This was literally my second lap on the bike.

Unfortunately the forum isn't allowing larger and/or higher resolution images...
Thanks from Rogue, VAST and TurboLag

I was at Mugello too. The SL was amazing but the SBK was on a completly different level, also found it the easiest to ride.

Great write-up, thanks for sharing. I'm with you on the taller seat. I had the Ducati Performance seat on my 1199R and really like the design of that seat.

He's probably just there with someone, but you never know, kid might've developed a six figure app. It's not unheard of in the Austin area.

I'm in my 20's and people assume that I'm in the tech world or a trust fund baby when they see my toys. Little do they know, I spent most of my adult life in the Middle East so that I can have nice things.
Thanks from Phl, Thamer and The Avidmoto

Good for you! But would you go back there? By the way if you're in your twenties, you didn't have much of an adult life Sonny. You're going pretty dam good having these toys already!
