Dry humping may lead to skin chafing, would you prefer wet?

I Ride: 1199Panigale,V11 Sport Ballibio
After decades of wanting a Ducati Superbike I finally broke down and bought one, I was very disappointed to find the new Panigale had a WET CLUTCH! and no more trellis frame, I bought it anyway because it was a bucket list deal, love the bike, but it doesn't feel like I have a real Ducati. I read all the bullshit about less rotating mass, extra horsepower, blah,blah,blah. Bottom line is it's cheaper to build a wet clutch, just like the new frameless design is cheaper to build than a real tube chassis.
A wet clutch is inferior, it puts trash in the oil, it heats up the oil, it also comprimises the oil you can use in the engine, and is much harder to service.

So then why did you buy a panigale when there are plenty of used ducati bikes that fit your vision of perfection? Sound like a manhood extention to have to buy new if you don't really like it..

the much more exclusive 2015 monster 821 dark has a trellis frame - u shoulda not bought the pani and saved a little while longer and purchased the more expensive bike..

(on the bright side: w/ the $ u saved getting the pani over the monster, u r able to afford the dry clutch conversion now..)

I Ride: way too fast to worry about my cholesterol.
My solution... Have a Duc with a dry clutch and one without. Its OK to own more than one Ducati.

There is no way designing and building the frameless system was cheaper than slapping on the tired trellis frame they used for decades.

Plus, it is lighter making the Pani one of the lightest superbikes around.
