You need at the very least the $450 passenger grab rail kit to fit the $150 backrest. You could also get the $1300 pannier kit, which comes with the grab rails kit. Or you can get the whole kit and kapoodle for $2k. At least that's what I remember from a while back.

If I get the cruiser itch bad enough, the Diavel would be oinment I'd get.

What JJ and Pachuco says is right. Actually I take that back a number of people have given some good insight into the brand. For curb monkey factor, women seem to love the ducatis. But thats just and observation.

Well the used tricolore 1199 sold.

Lunsford is hooking it up with a 2013 all white 1199 Panigale with ABS.

Then their the issue of which one to buy, now if your experienced with bikes don't waste your time with the 899 garbage. you'll want to get rid of it asap and your money would have been wasted. especially on how fast the prices are dropping on the 1199.

Now the bad news, Ducati's are awesome bikes in my opinion and will do a of a lot more than I will ever ask of it, but it costs to maintain. If your going to be about between 150-900 services costs depending on which one it is, then you should stick with a Japanese bike.
I agree with pachuco I have a ducati streetfighter 1098 and it is the most pain in the when it comes to maintinence intensive bike. But man it is one of the most fun rides I have ever owned

2008 Ducati Desmosedici
1980 Vespa (my track bike)






100 times I heard about how much it will cost me to do the 7.5k mile service on my Desmo but the truth is, I have the bike since 2010 from new and it is not even 2k so by the time she reaches 7.5k it will be worth spending the money in service. In the meantime, it is just oil and filter every year.

So if you will be doing 10k miles per year on the bike, then think about service costs.

If it is just recreational, get what you like the most and move on.

If you are not interested in outright speed why spend the dosh for the Panigale? I have had waay more fun riding a Hypermotard than any super sport or race replica bike I've ever been on. Plus better passenger accommodations.
Just a different opinion, I like to see through my bikes.
