I love my 2012 1199S, I've owned it for a few months now, but there were many shortcomings. After spending a lot of money on upgrades my bike is finally close to how I like it.

Fueling is terrible. Full Termi exhaust and Up-map have been a big improvement.

Gearing is way too high. 14T front sprocket solved that.

Footpegs were very slippery. I believe they cured this on newer models. I bought Woodcraft Rearsets.

Too much play in the throttle. Throttle Spacers were a huge improvement. As were new grips.

Seat is too firm and not grippy enough. Haven't solved this yet, but I will probably order a custom seat soon. I heard newer models now have better seats though.

Dont do it. Save your money and continue to save and not buy something you may want in life.

saving is important so you can pass it onto someone when you die.

Just kidding.

Buy it, ride it, and enjoy it.

get tired of it? sell it, buy something else and enjoy life.

and save money to for your future retirement.

What you mean with gearing is too high?

I have done:
- footpegs
- seat
- And planing to do the Termi soon

Love the bike

The bike was delivered two days ago. I had it delivered to a workshop owned by a friend of mine to have the whole bike treated with Opticoat paint protection. So with 5km on the clock, we disrobed her.

This is what has been done so far:
  • Akropovic Full Titanium exhaust. (loud, but sounds good. and so pretty)
  • Motobox Slimline LED Tail Light and Fender Eliminator Kit (not cheap, but looks they way it should have in the first place and works properly, turn signals are hard to see)
  • Ducati Performance Brake and Clutch Reservoirs. (looks better than plastic)
  • Ducati Performance Comfort Seat. (bum protector)
  • Ducati Performance Billet aluminium clutch casing cover. (looks good and protects the clutch)
  • Ducati Performance Radiator Grill. (looks good and protects the radiator)
  • Evotech Performance Oil Cooler Grill. (looks good and protects the oil cooler)
  • Panigale Throttle Spacers. (makes it smoother)
  • Underseat Heat management. (makes it cooler, yes it is possible to be too hot)

Planned changes:
  • Tuneboy, for the cruise (cuz I want to tour)
  • Shift-tech Subframe covers (cuz hot thighs)
  • Mods to the Motobox integrated taillight to sort out the crappy turn signals.

I've done 600kms on the weekend, lol the first service will be due soon at this rate.

Its an incredible thing.

Thanks for all of the kind words and encouragement guys.
