As some of you know I recently got a 959 Corsa after coming off of a 939 SuperSport S and then previously 748 and other various Ducatis. Today I had a custom fitting for my levers, gearshift, foot pegs, bar mounted controls and my SUSPENSION. Once all that was done my motorcycle became so much more responsive to me and so much more comfortable to ride, it’s literally like two different motorcycles. The reason why I put that height and weight in the title is because after speaking to multiple Ducati mechanics over the years they always say one thing. Ducatis are great machines but to truly make them superior you have to make them fit you. I never listened and I always just did a few nips and tucks to make them feel more comfortable. But as I thought about it, at my size I can never go to the store and buy anything that fits me without having it tailored in some way. That being said I got the platinum package fitting today. And not only did it make the bike more comfortable it made me and the machine become so much more seamless that I took the twisties like I never took them before and I had a different level of confidence trying to tame the savage beast that we call the Panigale. So all of the thousands of dollars I’ve ever spent on mods to every Ducati that I’ve ever owned- this by far was the best $200 that I’ve ever spent to have a more enjoyable riding experience. So to all the smaller AND bigger frame guys, these motorcycles were made for a 5’10 170 lb person for all practical purposes so go get your bike fit for you and It will make all the difference in the world !!
