New Year New Look!!

Over the winter I decided that I did not want a plain Ducati V4, and I did not want to go sticker replica of anything, so I decided that I would try something a bit different and Plastidipped the bike.. I still need to do the front fender and possibly re-wrap the fuel tank,(first time wrapping anything I don't think it is horrible, but definitely could be refined quite a bit.
1) It is fairly cheap
2) It is removable
3) they had a color that I was pretty fond of, way different than my usual translucent blue
4) Its just for fun and something to do

I finally got the bike back together and on the road this past weekend, we have only had a few decent days of riding here in northern Indiana, so i have not missed much..

Note the fuel cap area, too short on the coverage and wrinkled, I guess i though the fender and battery cover would cover more, ooops

Not a bad look.

I especially like how it still retains the Duc's premium styling although I think a bit of gloss could help.

Hopefully we see more customized V4's with how easy it is to get vinyl and/or plasti dip done professionally.

I hear you on the gloss, I have a very big item to go on that is gloss, and I am thinking of getting some ducati stickers made along with some other graphics done in a gloss finish, just something to set it off, plus to hide where the ducati emblems outlines show through the plasti dip and vinyl..

I put on a decal set from Vulturbike, it's hard but definitely worth it









And the collection :

So many ways to go about it as well, but not represented that well within the riding community. Come time to do it myself, I will look to the exotic car communities out there for inspiration.

Nice colour. Reminds me of Iron Man with the metallic silver and magnesium - and I mean that in a complimentary way. It really suits the bike's aggressive demeanor. The matching golf bag is a nice touch. I assume you sling that over your back while riding to the course.

Personally , I like the matte finish ! It looks amazing if you ask me . One of the main reasons I didnít want this Panigale 4vs was the red color. Iíve owned a bunch of Ducati bikes and none of them up until now have been red ..... most all of them have been black . Last one being 2014 Ducati 1199s Panigale stealth . They just look way more mean in my opinion and way less flashy . Harder to differentiate for the police as well.... all a big plus in my book . Wraps are a nice way to be able to get the best of both worlds ....
