Not saying its the case with any of the bikes in this thread, but some are ridden very
unsympathetically and are regularly bounced off the limiter etc during the thrapings on track.

Regardless off how sturdy the design and build is, the engines aint designed to be treat
like that without a heavier maintenance budget.

My personal experience from all of my 30+ bikes over the years (enduro, supermotos, road and track bikes) is that I have never an engine let go or needed to go through a major rebuild prematurely, yet friends around me running similar bikes and pace would have a failure every season. I'm sure I will get bitten eventually, but it must be a little to do with TLC for the machinery.
Thanks from Veteran and Riki

Bottom line it's a race engine. Not built to go 100K miles or km's without a rebuild.

Two ring pistons are meant for the track not high milage commutes............. There's a reason why Ducati won't give you an extended warranty on this bike.

In Ducati's defence they have never tried to market this thing as anything but an ultimate track experience. If you were expecting different then you have the wrong machine.

Absolutely they market it as such...but if ridden as marketed (on the track)...your warranty is voided (speaking from experience).

Interesting. Its not surprising you said that.

If that is what they are going with, how do they know you were tracking? No where in their websites says such. Do you mean Racing or just any track days?

There is a video from US CEO on interview of how Ducati should be used in Tracks. I saved it. lol.

Ducati (dealer and country distributor) are well aware I track my R. I have had normal
warranty treatment in all cases. My 15 bike was even exchanged for a 16 model after
a year of electrical gremlins. Apart from grenading a motor, I can't see what they would
knock back.

90% of the time, your relationship with your dealership is more important than any
small print.

In the pic they sent in with the warranty request the bike in was in track fairings. The dealer showed me DNA’s response...”The bike has been modified for track use and therefore we are denying the claim.” I have a great relationship with the dealer...bought several bikes from them. They wanted 23k to rebuild the engine. We built it better...for less.

This was covered in the past. There is verbiage in the warranty that says in effect that track use voids the warranty.

Don’t need to re-hash it. If your claims are covered...great.

I Ride: 15 Pani R ( I weep a little sometimes )
For the record, Ducati does market it as a durable street machine, with engineering to achieve service intervals like the rest of the Pani's. They advertise this online and on their brochures for the R. Absolutely, the R is designed and built to withstand normal use like any other Ducati. As for extended warranty, I have one, just not the EverRed. but its the same extended warranty and at comparable warranty cost as my other machines. I have good vibes with my R, it has had less issues than my '13 Pani S and is much more refined. I ride mine street, rather conservatively and it works like a charm. Low speed smoothness is not lacking on the R. I putt around parking lots and do U-turns like any other superbike or streetbike. I must be lucky as I haven't experienced any smoothness problems, the quickshift is the best I have experienced. It handles like a razor. JMO, YMMV.
