The word from DNA

For all you guys out here (in the US) who are waiting on a 1098S Black like me, this is the current word on delivery for them from Ducati North America:

Quote:
Hello Van,

Thanks for sharing our excitement about our new SuperBike!

The best information we have at this moment is that it will probably be available the end of Spring early Summer. When better information is available it will be posted on our www.ducatiusa.com website or through your dealership.

Best Regards,

Nelson

In a subsequent email he also cautioned, of course, that:

Quote:
There is always a risk of me getting burned by giving an answer to be helpful then having it changed by circumstances beyond our control and knowledge though.

Take care!

Nelson
So it looks like for me that, unless I catch a lucky break, I won't get my 1098 until I return in June

Was this just for the black? I ordered a 1098S in red and I was hoping March. I heard the 'S' models were being made first.

I asked him specifically about the black 1098S since that is what I ordered so, I am certian that he was responding only to that.

Also, I know the red S models will be out sooner because all the dealers that are participating in the opening weekend festivities on feb 9 and 10 will be receiveing a red S model.

Have you seen my balls then? Don't worry, I'm wearing so many layers out on the bike right now that my nuts are pretty toasty.

Hey, why do you think we buy Ducatis here with the underseat exhuasts? We need the heat down there!!!!
