st3

got a st3 loan bike from Ducati Bristol whilst the 749 is being fixed.
It is a very comfy bike and my hands wernt cold on the way home, the scary thing was i could see 1/2 of what was behind me.
Fair play to ducati bristol for the lend

As been said many times ... ST (whatever flavour) is a much under-rated bike. I must see if I can wangle a test ride on the ST3 next year.

Does this mean they have heated grips as stock?
Or that the fairing deflects more of the wind-blast than a 749's?
Like HW, Iwouldn't mind a go on one. Although when I rode an ST4 I thought it seemed a bit of a barge for a slip of a boy like me


You should consider louigimoto for your servicing if you're in Bristol BTW.

no it doesnt have heated grips, but my hands were freezing when i got to the shop on my 749, yet they were ok when i arrived home on the st3, maybe its due to the riding position.
