V2 Ordered My V2

  1. Ordered my V2 this afternoon. Chopping in my 1198 se corse. I was impressed with the demo bike I rode in between the hail and sleet today and really wasn’t expecting to like it as much as I did.

  2. What’s happening with your 1198?
     
  3. Part ex’ing it.
     
  4. Give us your thoughts on the V2 then? I'm interested to see what you like about it?
     
  5. It’s skinny, bit like a 999. Smooth power delivery but the speed increases fast when you want it to. I think it’s a better bike for the road as I could rev it hard through the turns without feeling like I was running out of road or ability. The electronics are great with seamless gear changes compared to other bikes I’ve ridden. It’s not too much of a stretch to the bars either. The suspension is firm on bumpy A & B roads but that can be sorted and to be expected on what is a race bike with lights. It feels all over more refined than other Ducati’s I’ve owned. I didn’t think I’d like it and always thought I’d never stray away from the trellis frame. The styling is spot on and I think it still looks like a Ducati from every angle. I will be saving up for the full system and some carbon bling as well as getting the suspension sorted plus getting the throttle sorted as it had a lot of slop and I prefer a quicker action. Oh, and some rearsets.
