that's what i read, but who knows? i read that yellow will be after black 'cause the black still has the same color frame, and for yellow they have to switch the assembly to grey frames. makes sense, but who knows? we're talking ducati. my understanding is that no yellows have been delivered in the USA yet, but maybe that's changed also.

im in the chicagoland area, my guy says something similar that the yellows will b last made and delivered. very difficult wait but i believe this bike with the black plastic (or carbon fibre)between the tank and the seat and the black marchessinis (also maybe cf) next to that yellow is going to b stunning.

I know one in MD also. It's called Battley Cycles. I went in one day last month and they said that they had one in yellow that is coming in and no one had claimed it.

If I were a betting man, I'd say that the frame color makes no difference in assembly order. The frames are manufactured and painted before delivery to the final assembly line, so whether the frame color is red or grey should make no difference. If Ducati is assembling Yellow 1098s today, they'll use the grey frames, otherwise they'll use the red ones.

Painting process

Doesn't it make more sense to spray all the red frames before switching over to yellow? That's the most efficient way to do it. (Not that Ducati is "efficient". That's why I hedged my original post w/ the observation that we're talking about Ducati, so anything is possible.) In the painting process, there's some downtime whenever a new color is brought on-line. Switching back and forth between red and grey would be time-consuming and inefficient. It would make more sense for Ducati to spray all the red frames before switching to grey. And that in turn means the grey frames arrive at the assemly plant last. Which means the yellow Ducs get built, (and arrive here), last. We'll see!
