All a bit pointless really, like the average Ducati owner can set a bike up for himself, at most he`ll just make it worse.

Best leave that to the race teams eh!!!

Yeah....adjustable rearsets simply have no place on a production bike. Adjustable ergonomics are also completely unnecessary as everybody is the same size & shape. Both very bad ideas for the "average Ducati owner". I think Ducati should have gone further & fixed the positions of all the levers too

VDM......what (who?) is the "average Ducati owner" ???
