You just gotta get calibrated.

Compare to that Panigale 1299S: ride that thing for half an hour in stop&go traffic and your back will ache, your wrists will hurt, and the clutch will be smoldering ruins. Try and turn it around in a parking lot and you will look foolish. The Monster, on the other hand, is a delight to split lanes with and the ergos won't hurt you.

You want to carry a family of five and a chicken thru downtown Phnom Penh? Get a scooter. But if you want to do some urban hooliganism it's a good choice.

Don't laugh, Monsters are really practical bikes. Good ergonomics, fantastic handling. You won't deliver pizzas with them but for a solo urban adventure they're a blast.


What about the solo urbane adventurist? Asking for a discerning friend...

Well spotted, sir! The Anniversario is pretty rare. The exhaust is an Akropovic, an aftermarket maker popular in Yurp but pretty rare stateside—available in the factory racing kit I gather. Which is a change from recent practice; Ducati used to favor Termignoni exhausts for its kits.

And it is indeed a desmosedici—desmodromic valves, sixteen of 'em, on top of four cylinders.

Sadly these things are so spendy that very few of them ever turn a wheel on street or track. Ducati could probably sell limited-edition bikes without engine internals and most collectors would never know.

 
Unfortunately true of most of the special editions. There is a guy in town who has a Desmosedici RR  but he rides the heck out of it. It has rock chips, scratches and smashed bugs all over (bugs only on the front). Also brake dust and chain grease on the wheels. Pretty impressive for a bike that was North of $70K. He's an interesting guy who also has an Italian boat, he is from Romania - and everything you would expect give those data points.  The sound that V4 machine makes is wonderful, I'd even say better than the Honda V4s.

Interesting, that's a different exhaust setup and a different paint scheme. 

The one I posted does have a lower on it though, here'a different view:



The whole gallery over at BAT has many wallpaper worthy shots: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/2017-ducati-ducati-1299-anniversario/

This one didn't sell at 24K$, which sort of surprises me. I've seen the non-anniversario Panigale 1299s in the low/mid teens. It's not a Desmosedici after all...

Yeah = dress up in leather, don a helmet, put some art between your legs, giggle with glee while doing incredibly dangerous things. Sound more like weekend activities.

Some incredibly restrained maniac has only put 65 miles on this work of art.   I would quadruple that on the way home, but 25% of that would be just on the back wheel.  

Missing the fairing lower. Probably made out of carbon fiber hand-spun by little old ladies in Bologna, weighs less than a silk hanky, and costs as much as every motorcycle I own, plus the garage.
