New V4S owner and first Ducati at that...

Just picked it up today... yes it's super hot under the seat but who really cares for what you can do with that thing. I'm actually scared :smile_big:

I have picked mine saturday. I have had a big issue with the fuel tank and as a consequence multiple parts were replaced. Is it normal that the tank and the frame gets really really hot?
Thank you

Also picked mine up on Saturday. So far no issues other than trying to keep my license I am starting to experiment with the bike settings. Very cool! Seat gets kind of hot when stopped. Amazing machine.

frame getting hot I can see; usually right under the thigh at the seat for me... but I hear it's not as bad as the 1299. Something to grin and bear w/ where the exhaust is. I haven't seen the tank get all that hot just yet.

Yes, sitting on top of a 200+ HP engine will do that.

What did you think was gonna happen?

It's a feature here in colder climates. I don't know what people are complaining about.
