Ducati 1198 PW June 28th, 2009 10:46 AM

Greetings from a new member :)

Hello everyone on the forum!

I have recently purchased a 1198 pearl white from Ducati Korea.

Yes, I live in Korea which is in the far east side. I have owned a couple other bikes starting from Kawasaki Zx-6r 02, Ducati S4R 05, Yamaha R6 07, and here I am with the 1198

I am more than happy with the bike so far except the uncomfortable seat which I will be changing with the ducati performance neoprene seats. So far I have added some "must have" parts; clutch slave cylnder?, pressure plate, springs, cover and hid.

Unfortunately, unlike those of you in the US, I had to pay about $27500 for the base model 1198. Tax here is crazy on imported goods. However, I am very happy that I am the very first owner of the very first 1198 pearl white that arrived in Korea. :naughty:

I am looking forward to learn a lot from this forum and wish you all for accident free rides :)

RE: Girl in Pink

Note to Korea, you've been exporting the wrong stuff. I'll take two.

Congrats on the bike too, looks great.

Thanks for all the warm welcome fellas :)

Funny story is that we went to the dealer for just an oil change on his 696. Sales manager kept insisting to take a demo ride on the 848 since they didnt have any 1198 yet. The owner of the dealership started bragging about how great the 1198 is and :blah:

Ended up signing the paper even before I saw the bike and so did my friend who owned 696 :laughing:
