Ducati's been using PDF service manuals for years. So there isn't such a thing as a hard copy manual unless you pay to have someone print and bind it for you. I usually just print out the pages I need and use the PDF as a reference if I'm totally stuck on something, which generally never happens. The only things you REALLY need for a re-build are the torque settings and assembly specs, which are only about 50 pages, easy to print at home. I have a 749R service manual printed that someone gave me, I've never once used it.
