Put the video playback on youtube and make it 1080p

You have to see the humor of the puffs of smoke coming out when it passed the camera and gets a bit of rpm's.Imagine that.
Thanks from Stw

I should imagine that an engine with 2 ring pistons will be inclined to use a bit of oil.

I wonder if there will be complaints regarding the ongoing oil consumption?

I like the front brake fluid tank at the about 1.42 mark. Looks polished silver with a black top. I do not think it is standard, does anyone know who makes it ?

And by the way if someone want so to give me one that smokes...I will gladly take it.

You're assujming that the majority of them will actually be ridden rather than become garage queens.

The fluid reservoirs aren't standard 1199 fare. I checked a SL out the last time I was at my dealer. They look more like the ones on the Monster 1200 S. Still made by Ducati, just with a glossy finish.

So, for those of you counting, #33 went to Dallas along with 2 others, #34 went to Ducati Omaha with a couple more, and #37 (+2) is in Oregon somewhere... Probably near Portland. Someone posted #1 and it seemed to be the UK?

And yes, I am fascinated by numbered editions. I also have a 2014 370Z NISMO, #241.

By the way, my wife and I were in the area and decided to stop by AMS in Dallas the premier exclusive Ducati dealer in Texas, for the Vegas themed Diavel release and they were locking up at 6pm.

We thought we would check out the new bike and show some support for our local dealer since I am in the market for a Panigale... No dice! Ran into Jeff Nash as he was about to drive off... "No mate, decided not to." It looks like DNA needs to coordinate with their dealer network a little better.

Any performance big bore is going to smoke a bit at first startup with zero miles. I documented the uncrating of my 'R and she smoked like a cheap whore on startup as well. I ran her aggressively during break-in and needed to add less than a liter of oil prior to the 1000km service. I haven't needed to add oil since. See below for the smoke...

You didn't happen to see if the other two were numbers 38 & 39 did you?

It appears that the first distribution might be 3 bikes to each location.

31, 32, 33 Dallas, 34, 35, 36, Omaha, 37, 38, 39, Portland??? That is, if they are delivered sequentially and the latter are expecting 9 total of the 200.
