... but not in the days where any major OEM has 6 sigma quality processes and you have quality engineers every step of the way...

So explain why parts of my Pani have fallen off with that logic?

Haha, that's my whole point, I wrote earlier that this is unacceptable and a sign of incompetant engineering.

I researched the history of a house I bought back in '87, it started construction on 12/6/33, the day after prohibition ended!! Surpised it was still even standing!

I agree, paying this kind of money for a bike you should get the good one any time you part from your hard earned money. I would be pissed off if I had the same experience (forgot the name of the member with several melted display etc. etc. problems).

However, I prefer to have the opinions from the people who have had these problems personally and not just making general comments about the bike without having owned one. Mind you, these are easy to spot.

On the more serious note, is there a difference in the US delivered bikes (shipped more in bits due to shipping) and the European delivered bikes ( just put the mirrors on)?

People that aren't, should not complain. Simple. Oh, IMO!!
i disagree with you here. i know 6 people that have ducs. i speak to them almost daily 5 pani riders and 1 1198 s rider. they arent just forum guys but guys i am friends with and every single pani rider i speak to had to loctite every single bolt. My friend that has the 1198s had the same problems as well. So i dont think its a small percentage. i guess 6 out of 6 or 100% is small.

With all my complaints and talk about the hp4 I still love the 1199. Just look at it when it is freshly cleaned. looks fast standing still (even though its a slower superbike that was sarcasim by the way) it demands attention. It never disappoints me till i get home and then i have to call the stealership or text one of my boys and complain.

Don't know if the US ones are different, but not like Ducati is a new company and hasn't been importing bikes to the US for decades now... The japanese and german bikes get shipped here too... so it's still no excuse. Should be figured out by now
