I Ride: 2015 Panigale R, 2018 XDiavel S
My New Stablemate

Went to test ride the V4S and decided I will wait for the R version next year but I came home with the 2018 XDiavel S. Rode her for the past few days/nights and I can't find any negatives about this bike. Well maybe one; the trunk doesn't even fit a wallet lol.

The bike is Comfortable for short and long rides, Power, Handling, braking outstanding. 2 up is comfy excellent, bells and whistle like cruise control and bluetooth excellent. I was really shocked how this bike handles and how quick to flick and turn in with a 240 rear tire it blew me away. OMG the max torque at 5000RPM is right where you need it, fueling is excellent and no issues with low speed in town, the bike does not starve for fuel at very low speeds. Kudos to Ducati for making one outstanding bike.

Been talkin about this for a year. Guess it was finally time to do it. We're overdue for a ride man. We'll have to link up some time in the summer after school ends and jr heads off to Russia for FIFA for a couple weeks.

Congrats dude.
