Woo Hoo, it is at the wharf in Sydney and expected to be at my dealer here in Vic on Monday. Couple of days to uncrate and assemble it, should be riding it next Friday.
Had a look at the regular 1200 at the dealers today. Not happy about the rear wheel hugger mudguard thingy, not on any photos, and the dealer suspects it is an ADR requirement. Suspect it will be easy to unbolt.......Also the rear indicators look a little odd.....hard to tell if they have been changed as well.
Went down to Ducati city yesterday and checked out the 1200S. That rear hugger is disgusting, fortunately you have the option of a shorter version either over the rear tyre (like the Diavel) or mounted similar to the 1100EVO. I've had one on order since late last year but cancelled delivery until the next shipment. Their are certain things that are not that appealing (radiator looks massive from the front, rear sets and pegs are a little daggy) but one things for sure..it is a beast. Would love to see it with gold wheels though!
Let me know how things go for you once you get it.
