Default Ducati Panigale Owner Experience?

Hey everyone,

Currently looking at a 1199 for my next road bike. Im wondering if anyone can give me their experience of owning one long term? Good and the bad etc. Im aware of all the heat issues and not so comfy seat but they are non issues to me.

Any help appreciated!

Also was looking at this bike on donedeal, does anyone here know it or anything about it?

Thanks

Motorbike: Ducati 899 Panigale
Default Re: Ducati Panigale Owner Experience?

I have the 899. Not sure on the major difference between it and the bigger ones if it's just engine. They run hot and are seriously loud when standing still because of the way the exhaust faces down.

The throttle is jerky but you can get a kit to fit spacers in to fix it. I love it will be buying another one to replace it when the time comes.

Default Re: Ducati Panigale Owner Experience?

I should add I service it myself, I have had one issue with a map sensor going. I brought it to Ducati Dublin and got them to scan it for 30 quid tell me what was wrong and I replaced it for 100 quid, they wanted around 400.

If you aren't going to service it yourself then your gonna need a large wallet. If you are, they need to be scanned if there's any issues and the only place in the country that has the kit to do that is Ducati Dublin, none of the independents have the kit to do it for bike newer than 2012, in saying that they did it for 30 quid so can't complain , decent skins

I commute on it every day but wouldn't be doing big mileage on it
