Smoother engine... mine is fine. Better lights... aftermarket. Better seat... can prolly just buy the 2013 version and put it on mine.
Not sure the "skyhook" is anything more than Audi cracking the profitability whip on Ducati ditching high fixed cost of Ohlins and moving to a tech'd up suspension that is less costly to them.
I see Audi influence in this bike and I don't like that. New suspension seems like a cagers mentality.
I've opted to buy a new 2012 rather than wait for the new model. I am getting a great trade in deal but also I do love a nice pair of gold ohlins
