Hey guys! New to the Ducati scene, only been owning Yamaha bikes. Ducati got me into bikes, I was walking in Seattle, dead stop traffic, I hear this mean roar screaming through all the traffic and I saw a Monster flying by, from then on I knew I had to get into bikes.
Im in the market for a V4, got one sold right from under me a day ago, looking for a good base model currently to pull the trigger on. I found a few, one the dealership is willing to let it go for 21,900.
I have to ask the obvious questions, as Im still quite new to most things Ducati.
How do you like your V4?
What type of power are you modded guys pushin to the wheel?
Any gripes or small niggling things about the V4 that you dont like?
What are some good tail tidy kits?
What oil are you guys running? Ive always run 300v in 10w40 (weight depending on temperature)
What tires are you guys running? Sticking with the Pirellis?
What are some key things to look out for?
How long should it take to break the bike in propper?
If you could go back to the day you bought your V4, would you still buy it?
Cant wait to get mine, test rode a V4s twice and a base model once, fell in love after I pulled out of the lot, should get mine sometime this week. Looking forward to all of your input, thanks!
Attached is my current ride, 05 R1.
