their dry clutches are not as primitive as the cited link above nor the old duck ones -- those dry clutches r easier to pull than wet and cost more than a pani r..

It's no that I hate it, as I had a 1098SFS, 1098S, 1198S and a SC. So I know very well about the dry clutch, but it's just old technology.

Why don't we go back to the trellis frame while we're at it

Never changed my oil on my R1 when I changed out the plates. Lean it over slightly and off you go. Not sure if it's the same for the ducs with wet clutches.

It is not old...it is just different.

FYI - most (if not all) MotoGP bikes use a dry clutch. It has its purpose, but on street bikes it isn't the best option.

fuel injection was invented in 1925, desmodromic valving was first used around 1950, and carbon fibre has been around 60 years.
a dry clutch however is as old school as a wet clutch.
the reason Ducati went to it had more to do with customer perception than functionality .
noise and the unsightly clutch dust probably were the real reasons ducati ditched the tambourine on the side of the bike.

I really loved the dry clutch ,

the latte drinking hipster sissys are the real reason we don't have dry clutches on the panigale
Thanks from Gecko
