Yep,10/40 fully synth is what you need.
At the last oil/filter change,I used Shell Advance Ultra 4,.....not because Ducati recommend it,.....it was on special offer at my local Hein Gericke.
Ive also used Motul 300V in the past.(Ha! The opposite to what I did in that earlier thread!)
I guess I put in whatever is on offer at the time.
