Have approx 160km on the new MTS... Awesome machine! She runs very hot. Is this normal?

It's true what they say... Ducati's have Soul...

I have four of the Red Machines although one was black and one white...
But they all seemed to run around the 215 -219 range unless under power.

Engine Ice in both or the Water cooled variety

Guess I should have checked the temp display... Duh!

In heavy city traffic my legs start to sizzle... Big engine, big heat I suppose...

It's a Ducati, you're supposed to sizzle.. at least in traffic, find some nice twisties and all is forgotten:D
And avoid all traffic by any means...

You're right... Well I'm retired now so at least I can pick-and-choose when and where I ride... Don't have to be stuck in gridlock on the highway in rush hour traffic five days a week.

I've been riding in Urban mode since picking her up... she's got some punch at 100hp. She must be a rocket in Sport mode! Going to leave it in Urban for the first 1000 clicks then I'll move up to Touring. Tons of torque! Cruise Control on the Highway is awesome! Needs a seat upgrade though... the factory seat gets hard after about an hour.
