then what are you getting for the extra 13k? I think ducati is asking to much now for their bikes.

Here is the current info I have on what is coming with the V4 Speciale:

· “Speciale” livery bodywork
· Individually numbered and laser-etched top triple clamp
· Carbon fiber front fender
· Carbon fiber rear hugger
· Seat upholstered in Alcantara
· Sport grips (similar to SL2)
· Adjustable Ducati Performance billet rearsets
· Carbon fiber heel guards
· Carbon fiber swingarm cover
· Adjustable racing folding levers – billet aluminum
· Quick-release Fuel tank cap – billet aluminum
· Brake lever guard – billet aluminum
· Full Ducati Performance exhaust system by Akrapovic
· Mirror hole / license plate covers for track use - billet aluminum
· Racing windshield
· DDA+ with GPS module
· Panigale V4 fitted bike cover

So just to put this to bed once and for all, I happen to have the new Ducati Performance catalog now which has prices for all of the DP accessories that are included with the Speciale, it adds up to $10,923 of DP accessories. This does not include the special paint scheme or the numbered triple clamp or the fact that it's a limited edition model. So essentially for $2,077 more than a comparably-upgraded V4S you're getting the special paint scheme and the numbered triple clamp and limited edition exclusivity.

So at least NOW when you are going to post up as a critic, you have real numbers to cite!

You missed my point entirely. I did not say you could recreate a Speciale. I said you could get close to it in terms of performance and accessories according to your own budget. As for the 13K difference, I think Jarel has said all that needs to be said on this.

Nope. Maybe if the S was a naked bike without something in place of those blingy parts but it already has some cheaper less blingy parts in the same place as the tricolore bike does. Therefore, no additional labor costs involved.

Looks like You didnt understand my comment. At least my point.

Discussion was IF someone to BUY Base or S and Add/Buy those parts to make it into Speciale. It will cost parts + labor (whether you pay someone or your time)

I was wondering how much that new exhaust would be. $6k is insane. But I see how complicated it is so I’m not surprised. And people were crying about $3300 for a 1299 akra system which is still pretty pricy.
