Hello From Japan

Good to be apart of the family! I also have a Hypermotard 821.

Welcome. Do you see many Ducatis in Japan?
Just curious, I know you make a lot more bikes there than they do in Italy.

Yes, there are quite a few people riding Ducatis here. They have a pretty decent size group on Facebook. Most are old Japanese guys though as young people here cant afford a Ducati. Japan does bike licenses by engine size. 51-250cc / 251-400cc/ 401cc+ . So you have to pass a test for each one. But most just do the middle license and then buy a Honda/Yam 250cc for their first bike. One, because they are easy to ride, and two, 250cc and under dont have to do a bi-yearly inspection that cost around $300-$600.

Thanks for the info, I have heard about the graduated licensing thing.
Our politicians are not smart enough to do something like that here.
Ride safe.
