OZ Arrivals

Ok I will start an Australia arrival thread....

Walked into Frasers Newcastle today, and saw the first V4 S in its crate. It is sold to a lucky guy ( on the forum?)

I canít seem to get the picture to upload though ....

Dealer said they have about 10 coming and all sold.

This would have been my bike, as I put the first deposit down but I changed to a Speciale. Should know this week when that arrives but I am guessing about 2 more months. Bugger.

Yea I got to sit on a V4 earlier this week in Sydney. Apparently mine should hopefully be in the next shipment which is coming next weekend. So fingers crossed it all goes according to plan

I went to Fraser's Sydney City yesterday, they have got the first shipment and have couple of V4 and 1/2 V4S. All are pre booked and just awaiting finance approvals of their owners, no demo bikes yet.
First V4 was delivered yesterday.

My V4S should be there in the next shipment which they are expecting at the end of the month, hoping if it could land before Easter break then I will get enough ride time during the break.

Yea hopefully they come before Easter break. Been very jealous seeing other people collect theirs.
Options im getting is:
Comfort seat
Rad guard (apparently Ducati performance doesn't have anything as of yet but they will try and get some)
Multimedia system (not yet confirmed when they are coming in)

Any other Aussies out there who have ordered the Speciale have any news on delivery dates?

I thought the V4 looked great, don’t know what all the haters are on about. Looks like a progression of the Panigale and all at the dealers were very complimentary.

Only thing is is that rear licence plate holder has to go!!!!

Was in Sydney this week and saw a couple at Frasers Sydney...

Now this really pi55es me off.. the ugly Oz compliance plate which is being pop-riveted onto the frame.. Completely ruins the side profile!

Does this affect the structural strength of that frame ?

Not sure.. but it sure as hell is fugly!

Agree, horrible and just plain stupid!

Does anyone know someone at Frasers who can get them to put this someplace else?

That is fugly.

Do they not check with the importer or the manufacturer where to put these plates.

I believe, there would have been enough space on the swing arm to place this plate.

The swing arm is not part of the "frame"
