I immediately rode it over to Shell and filled it up with 91. It's been starting up fine since... I don't know lol
Starting to wonder how much of this is Ducati's fault and how much is just your bike being fussy lol. At least you've found a short term solution.

good tip for other struggling owners to come across, not always do dealers and Ducati reps know what to do, experience tells all.

Hi, Have you resolved the starting issue? I have <400kms first week no problem at all starting, second week - just a pain to start cold - starts after about 2 mins of cranking, when it fires it sounds like its flooded and then picks up and clears - will then start from warm no issue.
Suppose its time to head in to Ducati and see whats the issue, but because it will be warm when I get there it will not reproduce the problem and start first time!
One thing i noticed the fuel overflow time exiting the underneath is kinda crimped closed? vapour lock perhaps?
