Ordered one ????
Ordered an "S" back in November,
Delivery expected 2 weeks into April this year,
Delivery delayed, should be end of April,
Delivery again delayed due to snow/inclement weather in Italy,
from Ducati, Italy,
"bikes ordered for April delivery will now be despatched (from the factory) end of April" dealer says - allow 10 days for transport from Italy to us,which would be 10th of May then ? WRONG
19th May - still no fuc***g bike - and no sign of it either !
Totally pi55ed off, another week and I'm off to order an Aprilia RSV4
From the info I have been given, there have been quite a few cancellations - some due to the fact that potential buyers can't sell/not getting the money they are asking for their old bikes, and, I think the delay in bikes arriving is just fuc***g people off ?

After watching a racing one last week, think std exhaust better as the sound was not Ducati with the racing termi, didn't even sound like a twin, the ne foggy rode sounded much better

My base model was due April, but i got it this weekend.

The S version seemed to be on schedule from what I could make out from Parkinsons.

Might be worth a phone around to see if there were any available elsewhere sooner, or if they have all sold till August?

Latest "news"
Dealer has ordered a total of 9 bikes (various models) from Ducati UK,
Checked this morning and the dealer is showing NO bikes allocated for delivery from Ducati UK ????
Figure that one out !
It's now become a big fu**ing JOKE - ****ed off is an understatement !
