Hello all,

New to this forum. Sold my 848 last year and finally got a 959. Anxious to get this bike on the track. Look forward to learning more about this bike and chatting with you all.

Cool, I'm looking to get out to both of them this year at some point... :wink2:
Where do you plan on servicing the 959?
My go to spot is Moto Forza for major services and do the little things myself. I was able to reset my own service light on the 848 with ducatidiag. Hoping to find another program to work with the 959.

BTW you will like both tracks. Buttonwillow is pretty fun too but a tad bit too far of a drive for me.

Yep. I commute 100+ miles a day for work so I switch between my truck and car every other day. No way would I ride my bike to work with all the crazy drivers on their cell phones lol.

You will definitely prefer this bike over the 848. I had an 848 track bike for several years and was never that pleased with its handling, never had a lot of front end confidence. I think the 749 handled much better than the 848, but the 749 had no power. Anyway, the Panigales' are Ducatis best yet, IMO. Enjoy!!

I sure hope so. I didn't test drive the bike before buying and have yet to start the new bike. I thought I was the only one who didn't have confidence in the front end of the 848. Even after changing the triple tree offset, I never really got comfortable with the 848. Look forward to this bike!
