Ducati 1199s Panigale

I recently posted the thread below asking about different bikes as I was considering what to get at the time. Needless to say, my research (and budget) grew a little since then.

http://www.detailingworld.co.uk/foru...d.php?t=369404

So, yesterday, I put a deposit down on a red 2012 Ducati 1199s Panigale. I know some on here know bikes but for those that don't, this was originally just over £20k new and is a 195hp piece of italian gorgeousness. It also comes with a slipper clutch, ABS, multi mode traction control, power modes, electronically adjustable ohlins suspension, steering damper, forged marchesini wheels and quickshifter (I may have missed a few bits!).

This one is pretty much standard and has just over 3k miles on it. Full service history and new Pirelli Supercorsa tyres. Hopefully, I'll be picking it up on 12th March - I just need to arrange a trailer or van for collection as i'd rather not have to contend with London traffic while riding for the first time on 4 years!

Purchases so far are a mammoth ground anchor and chain, oxford disc lock, abba stand and some new handlebar grips. First things to do when it arrives is give it a damn good detail and make it look as it should.

Anyway, here are a few pictures from the advert and in the showroom:

Stunning dude, I used to have a 748R some years ago (hopefully Ducati electrics have come on since then ) Moved over to jap machines afterwards and since been banned by the wife after one little accident, don't figure. You really can't beat Italian bikes for style.
Congrats on the purchase, you won't be dissapointed

Beautiful bike mate lovely purchase

Had a test ride on one last year and was debating it for ages, but for the sake of not being in the doghouse for the rest of my life I had to pass for the time being

The reviews and the like seem to suggest build quality is up to par so fingers crossed it will be. The electronics package is stunning though so it needs to work! The only concern I have is with the clocks. These have already been replaced under warranty and while they're a newer version, I really don't want them to go again!

I was close to going for a 2012 onward s1000rr but the only reason I would have over the panigale is the straight-line pace. Something that's irrelevant in real life!

I've been out the loop for a while, could you explain?

I chuckled at this as the salesman said 'it's easier to seek forgiveness than permission' when he accepted my final offer without 'ok'ing' it first. Maybe applied here haha. How was the test drive for you?

Now I with you! As you'll see, I've already got the chain above which I'll be using in conjunction with a mammoth ground anchor in the garage. I'll be honest, MCN had it in a couple of issues ago and it was thatcham approved etc so I went for it!
