Im keeping an eye on this thread. Not because im into buying one, but the bike is really a beauty. Ill not fill in with what "I" want, but just saying that bike will be one to chase someday.

I envy you the V2 powerplant, but im right on it...just need some time.


MS1200 nice bike.

Regards
Mikael

Well I put a down payment on a 2011 Red MTS 1200 S Touring today. Will pick her up Friday. Dealer made me an offer I could not refuse.

Congratulations - !

Best price I've been quoted so far is $ 18,850.00 + tax for a new S Touring (Red) with the 600 mile service thrown in.

Seems like the days of paying MSRP are well over !

VERY VERY similar deal here. I was really surprised when he told me.


The other dealer I was working with wanted $21750...... Full MSRP ++++++

That IS a seriously good price! Congrats.

I'm guessing that with the economy in the crapper, the market is starting to become pretty saturated for such a specialized model of bike.

Denver area dealers are making below MSRP deals too - but not that low.

Enjoy!

Both dealers I was working with had 10' non S versions on the floor and would not work on the pricing as much as the 11' Touring versions. I ended up getting the 11' Touring for just $1500 more than a 10' plain abs version (after you add in the panniers and sidestand that I would have bought).


It was a no brainer for me. An updated 2011 Red S Touring version with everything on it I will ever need.

I am so stoked!!


Like I posted earlier though, the other dealer was over $3k higher on an identical (but White in color) bike.....

Again CONGRATULATIONS - AWESOME BIKE & DEAL !!

Personally, I'd take a spin by the stealer dealer and let them know that they lost your business. It might serve as a wake up call for them...

I dont want to rub it in their face. The high priced dealer is actually an EXTREMELY nice mom and pop dealer. You could not find a nicer more welcoming shop to work with. I was truly hoping to do business with them even though they are a bit farther away from me.


I emailed the salesman back and let him know that they were "rediculously overpriced in comparison". I am sure he will come back and say that they will price match it but I will not do that to the other dealer.

It is a shame but 3G's is a lot of cabbage. That is a full Termignoni, a few extra parts, etc....

Service Bulletin: Rear Brakes

Havent seen this on the thread. FYI to anyone who thinks the rear brakes are crap:

Since buying the bike I felt that my rear brakes weren't grabbing to my liking. I actually had them looked at and was told 'they were within spec.'

So...they seem to be getting worse. I have been purposely hitting them hard to see how they slow me down, if I can trigger the ABS and/or rear tire lockup.

I 'bury' the brake lever with my foot but the brakes d'ont really slow me down, ABS doesnt trigger, etc. I am also concerned about the amount of fork compression I am getting when I think I am getting rear braking and tap the front brake.

Anyway...called the dealer about it again, described the problems above and he said that it sounded like a brake bleeding problem and that he had recently received a Ducati Service bulletin regarding the rear brakes and issues with bleeding them. Apparently the upside down position of the brakes on the newer Single-Sided-Swingarm Ducatis make them difficult to bleed correctly.

Taking it in tomorrow to get this fixed... and then more insane laughter will be heard as I ride down the road not believing how much fun this bike is :).

Michael

ps. will try to get a pic of the clasps on the 2011 panniers. Would love for them to fix the leaking problem as I live in the Pacific Northwet and have a computer in the pannier fairly often.

Mfaoro, the 2010 demo bike I rode had way to much rear brake travel. I told the dealer that they should adjust them cause someone unfamiliar with the bike could get in a lot of trouble on a test ride!

My 2011 that I brought home last night has more travel than I am used to but once you go down a few inches it has a very solid brake feel.

Just FYI to others out there. There is definitely something going on with some models brakes.

Had my rear brake "fixed"

And it still does not work very well. My 1098s was much better than this bike

I have adjusted most of the play out of my rear brake. Will bleed next, you must remove the rear caliper and turn upside down to bleed. My rear brake works okay, but I think it can be better, hardly ever use it tho unless slow speed turning.

Update: Have since bled the brake. Must remove caliper and push through wheel to right side of bike and twist around so bleed valve is on top. Had lots of bubbles, took about 3 full reservoirs to flush it to no bubbles. Rear brake works now, much better.
