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.

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

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