I dont buy any first year production of anything for that reason alone..
But on the plus side theres a reason why the come with warranties, otherwise no one would want to buy them.

If a seal is/ was made to leak then the system would cater for fluid replacement at certain intervals......now boys have any of you done a coolant check top up on a Panigale?..
It's fukin unfriendly and I doubt it was designed to be checked on a regular basis.

So I'm fukin unhappy about my 1299 leaking I doubt I will invest almost R7000.00 on theV4 now reading about the leak.

That was going to be my next question.. About a check up for a top up and how hard is it...

The coolant expansion tank/s I think there is 2 anyway there is one on the Rt front fairing up the top of the guard buried so you need a 3" mechanic to get up there to check it and to top it up well half the Rt side fairings gotta come off.
And I thought the Repsol CBR1000RR I have expansion tanks in a rotten spot but the V4 quafes that easily....Ducati could have done a better job on this thing.

Aside from adjusting the drive chain practically all the servicing I can do on my 848 you have to get done in the shop with this V4 platform.
I love the bike but give Ducati 2/10 for a user friendly bike for working on yourself.

All you guys are forgetting one very key point to this whole mess (for the record my 959 weeped a tiny bit)... it's ITALIAN made!!! For Foks Sake they only know how to make things look pretty and can't build for serviceability. Take San Lorenzo for example (in Viareggio) - in 2007 they couldn't even get their new build to draft properly, I recall it being almost 2 feet off!! And it's all glued together!!! Completely different than a Lurssen or A&R, doesn't even compare.
