I bought a Duc
« on: February 05, 2017, 03:55:16 am »
A 2015 Multistrada 1200 S Tour with Termignoni Titanium exhaust followed me home yesterday.



My garage is starting to have enough bikes.

Have to get rid of the mower. ECU upgrade to go with the exhaust?
Thank God for good men willing to do extreme violence.

Ducati ships the ECU with a fuel map for the Termignoni exhaust. It is activated by the dealer with a code. This was done when the bike was originally sold. The guy traded it in for a new Enduro model. I didn't like the enduro model because it's too tall and heavier. So this was exactly what I wanted with exactly the options I would have wanted for about $10k less than new.

The only sad thing is the future of my C14 is in doubt.  :'(

Look man, you had a good thread going. Don't go killing it with the Connie getting canned.  I think it's too late. :o

It's looking more and more like the C14 might stay. Its got too many miles on it to get a decent price. I'll be able to keep a lot of commute miles off the Duc if I keep the Kawi. And it's still a great bike to ride!

Can't have too many miles, it's a badge of honor  :)

I pull my bug encrusted '94 C-10 in for fuel, I'll invariably get a "nice lookin bike". I'll say "it'd look better if I ever washed it". Then they take a gander at the mechanical odometer and remark "70,000 miles!?!, WOW!" The one time I said "the odo has rolled, it's actually 170k miles since I bought it new", I had to call 911.

Keep it, if you have space. It may make a decent write off if you decide to donate it to your favorite charity down the road.
