    The trio

    Its not often I have all three out of the shed as given how we park our bikes in the top to tail its a marathon effort to get just one out with trying to get the disc locks off without tripping the tumbler alarms....
    Anyway these are my 3 Dukes all have their good and not so good the only thing I can really fault with them is the range per tank but hey they are the Ferrari of M/cycles!
    Anyway I think for sheer fun the 848 has it (Xerox) its mildly bombed with a Q/S, Termi's and a PWR CMDR III it is only 168 kilos dry and no creature aids.
    I have had the 1199 Tricolore for a while now and its a handful Termi's and ECU up flashed it 175 kilo's dry for @200+BHP. (2012 model with only 1,500 klm's on it)
    It has no wheelie control so give it a fist full in 1 2 3 4 under hard acceleration and the front goes skyward.

    And the V4 (2018 Gen 1 with Dovi's 04 number) well its just an animal the few times I have red lined it in 2 3 4 its grimacing power I mean you have to death grip to stay on the thing.

    The Ducatis all handle and whilst expensive to own I would not go past them for handling my Repsol 1000RR handles but nothing like those 3 do.
    And my 1100XX Super Black Bird well I call it the mobile lounge room long legged 300 klm's before reserve, super comfortable but no slouch in a straight line either.

    So to Ovidio bloke the Italianicon Ducatis are in a league of their own and I am gone hook line and sinker with them......

    The V4 some additions

    The V4 has had a few bits added for creature comfort namely a comfort seat if you own or have ridden a Duke then you'll know they are an item that is well appreciated by ones butt after a few hundred kilometers.

    And a set of Rizoma rear sets by Ducati fully adjustable as I am a bit taller than the average person these were a must. I would not trust the Chinese knock off's at $140/Au as the last thing you would want if pressing on them going hard into a corner and they snapped off.
    So whilst pretty expensive they are well worth it, sadly its to darn hot to ride at present but the limited K's I have done with these 2 items fitted is a +ve..
