    finally back in paradise...
    Despite the lack of anymore leaks of info or spyshots, I'm happy to see this future model coming back to the forum's attention again...

    As someone in an earlier post somewhere pointed out:

    A 1098 on stilts, bring it on... :eek1

    An extremely exciting upcoming new Ducati !

    I know that they went to 7500 miles; what models have 12,000 miles ?

    Oops! I cannot confirm the 12,000 mile adjust. I think you are correct at 7500 miles. Sorry about that.

    I see these bike were 12,000KM (7500 miles) , but are you sure they are now up to 12,000 miles between valve adjustments?

    No, I am not sure at all. In fact, I believe the correct number is 7500 miles. I was told 12000 in a hallway conversation, and I think one of the conversers (probably me) got Km and miles confused.

    Where is the exhaust?

    There is no room under the seat and the pipe behind the first o in motor looks like the rear header heading down to a collector.

    I guess Photoshop artists never put details in the way of a nice picture.

    Yo K1, i think the exhaust is that thing on the bottom of the engine going back under the pegs, looks like the exhaust doubles as the bash plate

    If this is an answer to a G/S then the exhaust is right behind the 21 inch front wheel that I'm having trouble finding. And in front of the possum scrapper that I do see because it has not yet fallen off.

    A serious competitor for the 1050 Tiger.

    Not a serious competitor for the KTM 990ADV.

    I have been thinking that even though KTM has named a model SMT, maybe that should be the official classification for these tall streetbikes with a 17" front wheel?

    Is the swingam mounted in the frame as well as the engine cases?

    I see some of the Ducati's look to include a swingarm mounting / tie in to the frame?
