Not too many ducs have the dry clutch these days. I'd lay money that in the next three years it disappears from the product range completely.

I think it is pretty sweet, Cycle World tested it on a track and concluded it is a worthy addition to the famed Ducati stable.

I was thinking the same thing. It's a little ZX-6R from a side angle and a little 929ish front the front.

Is this a good or bad thing? I'd imagine the engineers are doing what's best. I guess if you're a purist it would bug you, but things are always changing. I hated when BMW put a v8 in the M3.

Good thing in my book. Many years ago, first time I pulled up next to a Duc, I thought something was terribly wrong with his engine/tranny. I understand the racing heritage and all, and darn that thing makes some rackety noise.

If they keep going the way they are, I might actually want to buy one some day.

Would love to hear from a guy who owns four... People always say "duc's need a lot of maintenance" I assume they need the same maintenance at the same intervals, with the only difference being cost?

The newer ones aren't bad, it's the older ones that cost a lot.


Ducati went to a wet clutch because it's lighter, and requires less force to pull the lever in.
