The Big Man isn’t here to defend what was once his baby from the Mamba’s comments, but it wasn’t all plain sailing for the Ducati under the general Fast Bikes’ tenureship. The biggest problem was a set of head bearings that cried foul well before time. Ducati claimed it had done too many wheelies, with a fair few stone crashing back down to earth all too often. But we know that not to be the case. Every manufacturer can have a part that fails, you’ve just got to hold your hands up and set the story right. But let’s move on. It’s been a cracking bike to have in the fleet, and it’s going to make one lucky customer very happy!
