We'll see, there are already dealers sold out on their allocation of Speciales and putting feelers out to see if any other dealers will have extras they are willing to give up..............

Beside the exhaust, triple clamp and paint. What are the other differences your extra $12,000 is buying you on this speciale?

For me. I will buy the V4R. I have already made my intention known with my dealer as soon as the first deposit can be placed, I will be there with my check in hand.

As much I would like to do the same, I'm too impatient to wait another year and I'm not a hardcore racer so I can't justify the R new. I'll wait till the price of the R goes down at least 10k.

You just wait until they release some bad ass Speciale type version of the V4R and let's see how much you poo poo spending $12k extra then.

If they do make a bike like that, I would probably throw that deposit at them so hard they will think Nolan Ryan wants the bike.

It’s in Ducati’s DNA for decades to come out with “special editions” and they seem to have no problem with willing buyers. You can’t break it down into an extras list of costs, if you do, you are missing the whole point.

This is no different.

I have one secured but I can say down here there is more buyers wanting the Speciale then they are bikes allocated to Australia.

I have no doubt the R will be special in a way only an R model Ducati can be, but it is a race bike first. The Speciale is the Ducati version of its flagship model for the first ever V4 road bike. Gotta love that! History in the making.

What do you guys think my chances are of snagging a Speciale towards the end of the year or early next year? Maybe used? I really want one but wont be ready to buy until I've closed on my home. Just started looking.
