Sure I've seen 12,000km (7500miles) between service on the official launch blurb.

There's no specific info available yet, but as with all the 2007 model range, service costs are approx. 1/2 of what they were on a comparable 999.
The timings are 12 months or 7500 miles, but much more has been moved onto a mileage consideration rather than doing all the work on time alone.


.....but better in YELLOW, or Bloo and now even RED

Changes in quality from the factory, improvements in parts and application of common sense appear to be the most obvious.
The details are filtering through so should start to make sense soon. Not sure if it's going to be retrospective though.
The crux of it all is that if the mileages aren't covered, then there's parts of the schedule that don't require doing. If the mileage is racked up, then i don't think there will be much difference, which makes sense.

The CAN type wiring system has also been employed on the new bike (much was made of this when the 999 was launched) which greatly reduces the amount and complexity of the wiring. Re-siting the electrical components to the left hand side of the bike, also improved access to the cambelts which too reduces time and effort for servicing tasks. All these lessons have been employed and improved upon with the 1098 and comparitively it sports considerably less parts than the 916 and a few less than the 999, which all aids in reducing the work required to carry out formerly awkward and costly maintenance.

Only problem when any one thing goes wrong you tend to have to change the lot...

Not sure that is entirely correct as Ducati would have been facing a myriad of warranty claims for new looms and sensors if that was the case.
