I have redlined it a few times through the gears, but yes. Definitely a big grab at 9k. There’s still no way I can make anywhere near claimed top end, spin my rear tire or lift the front (front came up a hair launching without launch dropping my clutch at 9k from standstill)I think you will see a lot more power between 6-10k rpm.
Driving to Vancouver Ducati in 3 weeks to talk to them. I really hope I’m just an idiot and it’s operator idiocy, but ive way too many bikes and been riding my whole life. And my goldwing punches harder than my cati. I’m very grateful to all the replies, and I am wondering if I’m just expecting super bike performance out of a bike that’s just not a super bike. I think my biggest issue was maybe being promised that this bike would out perform my 2011 Duca which it does not in any way shape or form
