Anyone have one on order? What's your thoughts on the VVT, 19,000 mile valve adjustment intervals?
There are some great deals for new 13 and 14's sitting in showrooms but I'm thinking of ordering a 2015 if it's possible for some negotiation.

I like the look and 1st ride report of the 2015 Multi - but found a great deal on a leftover '13
Wouldn't necessarily buy a 1st year model because of new problems, the 2nd Gen Multi's are pretty well sorted.
But I do love that Pearl white with red frame rool

Anyone had a valve adjustment done at a dealer on a Multi? What did it cost? Hopefully the VVT doesn't make that 19k service cost 1500 dollars.

The VVT is really just really fancy cam sprockets. It won't change the service at all, the belt slides on/off in the exact same fashion and the desmo action/cams are still the same. I read it somewhere, i just can't seem to find it now, Ducati addressed that specific question when talking about the DVT. I'll keep looking for it.

Any major service is going to be expensive though. I got quoted $1200 for my 15K and plus or minus $200, that seems to be the going rate. Shop time around here at the franchised dealers is pushing $100/hr.

My Triumph Tiger 1050 hit $900 for the 24k service, seems like 1k for major intervals for most of these. Triumph was also 100hr.

I would've liked a third color choice for 2015..... the silver/greys used in years past were great options and seemed to work well on the bike itself.

Latest I heard was "sometime in April"
Same for the Scrambler and 1299 Panigale.

I bet this thread will self activate once they arrive. This has been a long gestation.

I put a deposit down yesterday. I get the first S in Iceberg White from my local dealership. Ordered a Touring Package as well.

Can't wait for a test ride. I don't want to be tempted but I really want to ride it too.

Just shut up and take my money...
