Everything about that statment is true, just not the exhaust system. And that is for the U.S, I called Ducati on North America and said what gives. I paid up front to make sure I get my self a TC and on your site it says its full racing exhaust now what :nutkick: . They assured me it was a full system for the North America region, but can't speak on the behalf onf UK nor EURO OR AUS as this is not her territory. A missleading add like that is strongly forbiden by the BBB and they can't do that. So I hung up called again, and some other person answeard and said the same darn thing. So yeah I guess we are getting a full system. Except the guy the second time said he is not sure of the world wide number as in the US is getting nearly 200 units.iang said:This was direct from the UK Ducati national sales manager, this is his comments on a couple of questions that I asked,
"Just a follow up on the 1098 Tricolour. The bike does come with the silencer kit and dedicated performance ecu and NOT the full system. the rational is that the price differential in the US between 1098S and 1098 Tri is $5000, which is greater than the Euro3000, or £2000 that we see in Europe and UK.
The Clutch cover is the same as standard 1098S and 1098B. There is NO Traction Control.
Whilst the bike is not "numbered" as 749R / 999R are, it is only being built between January and June this year so they are an exclusive machine with an expected production number of 400 machines. I am bringing in no more than 125 bikes, most of which have customer names against them already"
"I see that you now have your name reserved for an "S" I can confirm that you are high up on the list that they gave me, and it is an S. It was changed by them from Base to S on the 22-12-06. The original order date was the 7-11-06. They also stated that you were hoping for March delivery, which should happen. I'm not able to tell you when in March though at the moment"
