Been lurking a little while, as I've been getting closer to making a move on an 899 Panigale. Always had a soft-spot for the 'baby' Panigale and Ducati has been on my list to own at some point. Well, the stars have aligned and I bought one today and might have it by the weekend. I'm coming from a 2014 RSV4 Factory, my second RSV4, so not new to Italian, but this is my first Ducati. It's a 2014 model with 1,900 miles and one of the things I really like about it is that it's pretty much stock, even down to the number plate hanger, apart from a rear seat cowl and a few R&G bobbins. Also, means I get to own a Ducati twin, after having inline 4, V4 and crossplane bikes. After owning several great bikes over the years with the usual mods we all tend to do, the idea of a stock/relatively stock 899 really appealed to me at this point. I may look into changing the slip-on in the future, but quite like how it sounds already, and would like to get the revised oil/radiator guard for peace of mind.
