Hi All,

My name is Artur and I bought 2018 XDS with only 9200 km from a dealer in Quebec City several days ago.
Rode it home to Toronto at night, temperature was down to 0 C in some places, thought I am gonna freeze out 🥶

Bike already has a Termi exhaust, passenger backrest and LED front turns.

Bike is very fun to ride, comfortable and very good in turns.
Has great range, can make 300 km before light turns on.
So far I am pretty happy with it.

This is my first Ducati, before it I had cb919 and Fjr1300.
Something that I don't really like It vibrates a lot especially under heavy acceleration and not that smooth on low RPM in comparison to I4 bikes that I had.
Also gearbox shifting is not very precise has some false neutrals. Quality is not that great in some places also.

Thinking to instal small windshield, some luggage options.
Also looking to install hands-free fuel tank cap, and started a thread.

Btw, I am new to Canada and would be down for a ride with local folks.
Especially if you can show some twisty roads🙃

Welcome aboard !!

I was also shocked by the vibration. Missed shifts are also a problem I did not expect to have. But I still love the power combined with the great riding position. It's a great bike overall.

This windshield is wonderful. Amazing wind protection given its small size and attractiveness:
