Didn't think it would be heavier than the Panigale 1299's 367lb. And it comes with 2 year warranty! Nice!
Indeed, glad they gave us a good warranty time frame to work with since just about anything bad that can happen covered under warranty should happen within that time frame. Great maintenance timeframe as well!

Are these the specs of the US version? They seem to be looking at the pictorial and the under slung exhausts. And yet, they state it to be Euro 4 emissions?

If that is the case, why does Europe need the side mount pipes?

ducati hasn't been the best at clearing up the confusion...
Very true. Ducati is not being forthright with weights. Both Dry & Kerb weights are inconsistent and often plagued with errors.
Moto journalists are not helping either as they're simply regurgitating the manufacturers numbers without due diligence.
