Bought my 959 three summers ago. Thought about upgrading to Ohlins shocks, but decided to wait till this fall to see what Ducati would roll out. Not enough of a difference to justify the $9,000 after tax trade in differential. Bought a 2019 959 corsa with 1,500 miles on it. Shocks with installation is $3,000, upcoming valve job would be at least $1,500.
Be a bit of a wait won't it for a special addition to come out? Not a lot of people other than us would shell out rather than going up to the big pony.I’m going to wait for an S or Corse to come out.
An "S" or Corse is of zero interest to me. The Öhlins it would come with wouldn't be what I wouldnt be he same as adding Öhlins to your bike. All you need it Carts for the forks, this is substantially cheaper then the entire fork, plus you can customize your springs which is crucial and heaven forbid they throw the electronic Öhlins on it hone you are shelling out bread to make it manual again. Same force rear, on a S version you get what you get on the spring... Corse is all about the paint job, and lets face it it does look good. But I dont ride on the street and picking out a livery for track plastics is way more fun then any Corse.Be a bit of a wait won't it for a special addition to come out?

I think we can spec our own bikes far beyond what the factory will do, limited edition factory specials they will never be but at least you can remove all your special bits and put them on the next. Aye Karl?
