    These are the only ones that have been supplied from end of Feb onwards, so no need for that team wattage to get hands on. ;)

    A bit of patience and ensuring there’s an order in the system somewhere with your name on it however is a requirement.

    I was referring to the ergopower compatibility, not the caliper.

    The running change was introduced in February actually hence the hiccup in supply. They ran out of the old due to increased demand from the market and the new ones were facing a slight delay.

    I believe I have all possible PD straps in my possession and can confirm they all work great. I use the heavy duty one with the XH1 and my 50-140 or 8-16 lens. The smaller ones I use on the X100v.

    I did notice they start to fray a bit when used with a stabilizer that attaches to the strap with velcro. In this case, I’m pairing a third party stabilizer to the strap and the velcro catches the strap from time to time so more my own fault than anything else really.

    And loud AF probably? Blasphemy or not, I'd turn into a cafe racer 100%.

    Nice catch, congrats.

    Interesting way of selling something.

    The engine / exhaust gets smoking hot, it doesn't like city traffic much and imo it's definitely not passenger friendly. It can be a bit jerky on the throttle in both 1st and in 2nd gear at low rpm which can make for interesting hairpins.

    The saddle is thin, slippery and doesn't do a great job of protecting your arse from the exhaust heat. Might be nice in winter but not so much during the Italian summer time.

    Suspension is top notch and so is the front brake. I've hardly used the rear brake simply because the lever is just a tad short for me to reach haha. I really need to look for it. I'll guess I'll have to opt for a rear set to modify it to my liking.

    The sound is music to my ears (quite deafening actually even with earplugs) and I've grown to appreciate the sound of a wrench that's bouncing around in the engine bay at the traffic light, aka the dry clutch. You really need to pay attention when downshifting as the rear wheel locks up easily and your crown jewels will get smashed against the tank over and over again. The riding position can be considered "aggressive" and I like to compare it a bit with riding in the drops constantly on your road bike. Guess those hours on the turbo are finally paying off...

    I can literally bring a disc lock and a credit card, that's all that I can fit in its "cargo" bay. Fuel tank is a tad small to my liking and it's not very fuel economic either.

    But all of those things don't really matter to me as I bought the bike purely for myself and any negative is completely transformed into a positive as soon as I walk into the garage to fire it up, open up the throttle, let it rip and you get enjoy the sound of the Termi's.

    I really enjoyed the Aprilia but owning the RSV felt like owning an RSV... Owning the Ducati, to me, feels like owning something beautiful, timeless and special. I guess that's what it's all about.

    There’s been a running change in Feb ‘21 to the DB 12s ergo’s. If you currently have have a left or right ergo and are looking to complete this with the missing, make sure to get the corresponding codes. Article codes starting with EP19 are different from the ones starting with EP21.

    The calipers have been redesigned and have a different shape, same brake pads however and both use mineral oil.

    All the above regarding adapters applies to both the EP19 and the EP21 versions.
