I Ride: 1299s
New to this forum and the Ducati family but have a newb question!

How’s it going guys, just picked up a 1299s and so far loving it. Coming from a zx-14. I do have a question though... there are a lot of times expecially in the city (NYC) where I have to turn super slow but tight corners. I usually would do this in 2nd gear on all my other bikes.. but when I do it with the duc it feels like it’s gokmg to stall out so I’m having to just look like a newb Cornering in 1st gear using the clutch. Is this normal? Or just a part of owning a Ducati?

Yep, normal.

Wet clutch mate, won't do any harm riding it a bit.

Welcome aboard.

You could also drop the front sprocket to a 14T and see if that helps with the bikes low speed manners
