Took delivery of my 950S GP White yesterday. Did a 435km day, very impressed with fit and finish over the Tiger 900 RP I had. Will look forward to when I can unleash the full RPM after run in.
 
So far so good, it's such a comfortable bike to ride, which is what I wanted, a long distance comfy fun twisties bike.

    Seems great thus far. Although there's this weird grabbing noise when I come to a slow stop and more so when turning like into a carpark spot or when turning the bars.

    I'm thinking brakes bedding in but does seem unusual.

    Will get the dealer to have look on Tuesday.

    Yes loving it, absolutely fabulous bike, can't fault it really. Really enjoying the torque, especially 3rd gear roll on around 4000rpm just launches.

    Had a bit of drama with the dealer fitting the crash bars without the spacers, all sorted now but not without some very small rub marks on the the side fairings which will be replaced by dealer.

    Have had a lot of compliments on the bike, everyone is taken by the colour, probably because they haven't seen another on the road which makes it stand out.

    Just need to get away for a week or 2 of touring to really get into it.

    Thatís good to know. Thanks for the feedback. I am considering a change from the Beemer and really enjoyed the test ride I did on the MTS.

    I changed from a Tiger 900 Rally Pro and have to say the build quality of the Ducati is a level above the Triumph. Tiger was good , however the 950 is just better.

    Your decision of course, but beware the Ducati is very addictive,  the induction sound is so good and has caught me out a few times winding it on and before you know it, your way over the limit...LOL
