Just come back from factory visit yesterday

Just returned from a trip to the factory so got to see and hear the 1098, a real stunner, the pictures don't do it justice (no really!) and the sound on the standard cans is fantastic, so what the Termi's will sound like it will be great to hear. Ducati stated they listened to the people re the sound, the look and the single sided swing arm so they're back.

This is the second week of production and there's lots and lots already, all S of course.

So for those of you waiting on delivery - Enjoy! - I'm more than a little envious, it won't happen for me but hey that's just life.

Oh by the way found the GP7 under a bubble wrap sheet too, it quickly disapeared.......clearly been left in the wrong place at the wrong time!

Cheers

Nice one! Going to the factory is almost like owning one though!!

Did you 'nick' any coffee cups etc?

How was the GP bike looking for '07? A winner in waiting?

Riders Bridgwater say they have taken orders for 6, not sure if that is good or bad. Any one got any info on sales of the 749 / 999 when it was launched?

Daytona said they have had orders for around 20,mainly from repeat customers/Ducati owners already,the majority of who worked in the City.

What i also found out that surprised me was how many Desmosedici's had been ordered,and the rumour of a second run of them!
