Man I love this new exhaust, whats next???



1200S model

Man these pipes are killer. They sound very 'motogp' and with the new tuner the bike is a lot more powerful. The new Rizmo pegs are keeping my feet where they should be. I've only changed a few things but man what a difference. I'm definitely loving these racier changes. My suspension was professionally setup for my weight already. I plan on putting a rad & oil cooler guard, and some Rizoma drag bars. Light weight rims would be nice, although its not going to happen unless they are wreck take offs.

Is there anything else you guys would recommend?

A bellypan to frame that beautiful exhaust.

Beautiful, d'nico. Please don't fuggly it with a bellypan. Some pan designs look good on some bikes. The 1200 is not one of them, and that design wouldn't look good on any bike. Just my opinion, YMMV.

And I disagree totally with your view. The 1200 oil cooler looks lost low and forward of the engine, exacerbated by the color band. The bellypan continues the lines Ducati started.

I bought a belly pan for my 696 and it looked nice. I agree though, this particular belly pan does not look great. It just doesn't flow well given the route of the header.

Of course you do, and we know why.

I'm not a fan of the belly pan on this model. I have been wanting to change the headlight out. I think an XDiavel headlight would look killer on this bike.

Turns out light weight rims may actually be a thing, 1098 and 1198 Marchesinis bolt right on to the 1200s. I found a few magnesium 1098 take offs that were $1000 for the pair.
