Some examples of bikes that have gone up outside of the 5-8 years - just look at the sport classic line (particularly the Paul Smart). The Supermono in the mid 90's also went up pretty immediately as well. .

But by and large this is correct and who knows if the SL will retain anywhere near its value. .
I expect it wont retain its value. I mean it could but I suspect its not really that big of a deal for the target market of this model. With any of these bikes its about wanting to own one not what its going to be worth. I keep my Suzuki RG500 Gamma and Paul Smart because I love them not because they are worth more today. Same for all the motorcycles I own.

My kid can figure out what they are worth when I am dead.

Jarel tells me that 1199SL's are now in the USA and shipping to dealers next week. Woot Woot.

The dealer I bought my bike from has sold 2 of these bikes I'm gonna go down and see one in person,he also showed me a video of one of his techs at a training class,this guy walks up to the bike grabs it by the clip ons and lifts the front end off the ground like it was nothing,my comment was must have anti wheelie software he told me you you can select how high you want it to wheelie and it limits it to that height...wow

Yeah, I have the product guide (PDF) that goes with the SL from my dealer, which talks about DWC among other things (albeit briefly), but it's too large to attach here.

EDIT - Quite a few requests for this, I've uploaded it here: 2014 Ducati 1199 Superleggera Product Overview
Thanks from 1199 dreamer

On the fly adjustments are the key here!

There's a big unveiling party or whatever you call it @ Ducati Bellevue on 5/9. Figure it's worth a peek on my part.

I see she comes with a lithium ion battery.. I'd like to see if I could order one to swap out mine without disturbing Ducati by using an aftermarket product...

We'll be having our "unveiling" party about 10 seconds after the first one comes out of the crate next week!!! Ha ha!

FYI, this first shipment in the U.S. is not all of them, there will be another shipment coming later. Ducati said they were filling the orders in the order in which the deposits were received. The TPL Racing bike was our first deposit processed out of 4 total, and the first 2 are coming in this shipment.
