Bingo, bro

 

Couldnt tell its a 999 from my side mirror when you were coming from behind. Sorry, I didnt wave to U... hehe.. Anyway, your termis sounds softer than I thought.

Hi Jeff,

 

Great to find you here bro. Maybe we can communicate here rather than via SMS. Hope you'd understand as it is diffcult to access my h/p while I am on duty.... the reason why I can't respond fast to your SMS queries. :sorry:

Hi Guys,

 

Some riders from the S'pore Ducati forum along with their fellow riders are organising a trip to Mersing / Kuantan this coming CNY weekend 25/01/04 (Sunday). We should set off in the morning and return by mid afternoon.

 

Anyone keen to join? It will be a great opportunity for Duke and other riders to meet.:thumb:

Seal

Hi seal,

Jus like U said,Definitely a hole in the pocket but the feeling thereafter when riding the bike makes it worth it.

I think its better and safer to have a certified and good mech to do the bike than have any Tom,###### or Harry.Eugene is one good one U can trust.

:cheer:

Ducati is not the top notch of bikes but is certainly the Dreams of most Bikers(At least for me):cheeky:

Owning one have sure make my dreams can true.

 

 

As for the brake pads,I think its wise of u to stick to using back the pads.I hear tat EBC is nt bad but I have try it before.I had used Carbon Lorraines and find it makan the disc and the the braking power nt tat gd.(On my other bikes)

 

 

As for the ride on CNY weekend 25/01/04,cant make as it is CNY.Its time for family gatherings and reunions.

 

 

 

 

Cheers

mika14,will indeed keep U update.

Past rides are already history....

Current ride: FW VFR 800 ABS

heh heh. nice looking bike u got there. what mufflers were those anyway, couldnt tell.

 

yea, wasnt loud coz i had to keep it soft ;) coz we saw two tp bikes, remember?

 

its geared very tall and i was going at 3k rpm, and it was abt 90km/h.

 

anyway, i have to say again, your st4 looks excellent and well maintained

Hehe.. Thanks for the compliments, bro. Must be the street lighting that helps.

 

Oh Yah, the TPs.....

 

Anyway, I think most ducatis are geared very high, maybe U can change the sprocket.

 

Heard a 999 at the workshop today. Doesnt sound as nice as one with termis.

Hi James,

 

Just wanted to share.... brought my ST4 for it's 20,000 km interval servicing....set me back by $1.2k plus. Definitely a hole in the pocket but the feeling thereafter when riding the bike makes it worth it. :thumb:

 

Just one comment though, I had my brake pads changed to Brembo OEM as I find them absolutely fabulous. But they are sort of on the steep side. If you know of any other alternative pads that can give as equal a performance.. you may want to change to those. Hear Carbon Lorraines are good. As I did not want to gamble, I stuck by the Brembos. Just a suggestion.

 

One last thing... I read this quote from a Ducati Owner's website:

 

"Very often the decision to own a duke is not based on hard measurables like service costs".

 

:confused: Guess we just have to think about riding and not the cost *sigh* But the thought of riding another bike besides my Duke.... Nah... I'll just bear the cost. :thumb:

 

Regards,

Seal

Yo bro, I agree with U, riding the duke makes all occasional hiccups and servicing charges worth it.

 

I am using Carbon Lorraines now. Not bad, way cheaper than Brembo.

 

As usual, I wont be going for the trip. Would be either busy working or visiting.

Shoei,

Thanks. :cheeky:

 

 

 

Hi,mika14.

It will depend on how much U love the bike.

A FP 916 will cost ard 10-14K depending on condition & accs.

A 916SPs will cost ard 18-20K depending on condition & accs.

A FT 996 will cost ard 20-23K depending on condition & accs.

A 996SPs will cost ard 23-26K depending on condition & accs.

A 998 will cost ard 23-28K depending on condition & accs.

A 998SPS heard tat only 2 in s'pore,dun kw if its true. :confused:

Maintainance is slightly higher during the servicing interval,but I find it normal for oil changes and minor servicing.

As ducati dun have chiong parts,so LL gt to use original parts.(Jap Bikes if uses orginal parts also not cheap)

How I wish tat ah boy have spares for dukes too :cheeky:

 

 

 

 

Cheers.

Hi James,

 

Glad u r enjoying your bike.

 

 

Was looking for a 998 but seriously no one wants to sell. If u know anyone selling at the price dont mind can get back to me. Neither could i find anyone who wanted to sell a 996SPS at that time except for mary =p but no money u see

 

 

Anyway think u typo, cos there is'nt such a thing as a 998SPS only the normal ver, S ver, and R ver. U would be right to say that there are 2 998Rs in singapore though .

ive not ridden a 748 so i myself dont really know. its more for the track nut where more throttle can be used when exiting corners as the power is less. dont have so much worries abt high siding it on full throttle.

the bike is not much lighter than its bigger brother tho.

Current rides: Ducati 999 and X9 500 SL

in my opinion most Ducati 916/996/998 owners are mostly expats anyway...

seldom see Ducati 916/996/998 in heartland HDB carparks anyway...

Hi mika14,

I am working in the navy as a tech.Actually,there is nt much to maintain the bike,jus 3mths change oil and filter as I dun used it often.

I staying at clementi but my 996 is parked at my gf plc as her plc is a muti-storey carpark.(away fr the rain and sun)U can always call me out for a cup of kopi to see the bike,my friend.:cheeky:

 

 

As for the diff,996 is using the 3-spoke rims as 916,998 is using muti-spokes type.

There's no exterior differences between all 3 bikes.

      Ducati Singapore (Wearnes) Official Price List
      Please update if you have the latest month's price list as the prices will fluctuate with the COE prices and also availability of new models.
      P.S. We can all dream of owning a Ducati one day can't we? 🤣
      Ducati Panigale Superleggera is priced at S$298,000 OTR.

    • By SBF
      This is more like it. After we gave Ducati a razzing over its insistence that a paint scheme and some small spec changes constituted a new model, it has wowed us with an all-new 2021 Monster. It’s 40 pounds lighter, it’s more powerful, and its bones are substantially different than the 2020 bike.

      Ducati’s legendary naked bike showed up in 1993, a Massimo Tamburini-designed beauty with a steel trellis frame and Ducati’s infamous L-twin on full display. It was a hit, but even with a blue-chip name behind the drawing board, it was a parts-bin special. That, friends, ain’t the case here.

      The 937cc Testastretta L-twin pushes out 111 ponies to push the new Monster’s insanely lithe 366-pound dry weight. Backing that up is 68.7 pound-feet torque at 6,500 rpm. As is de rigueur with Ducati, it sucks its air and gas through desmodromic valves. Peak power hits at 9,250 rpm, which should mean the Monster’s power curve is nice and friendly.

      The power is sent through a new gearbox that has an up-and-down quickshifter as standard.
      To lose all that heft, Ducati went for broke, chucking the iconic trellis in favor of an aluminum “front frame” that apes the Panigale V4′s. The new cradle bolts straight to the engine from the headstock and is extremely compact. Out back, the subframe is now glass fiber-reinforced polymer (GFRP in Ducati marketing speak), which Bologna says saves 4.2 pounds. The wheels shed another 3.75 pounds, and the swingarm has been slimmed by 3.5.

      Coupled with the weight loss, the new Monster is narrow, and has a stock seat height of 32.3 inches. If you’re more compact, Ducati will sell you a seat to lower the bike to 31.5 inches, and if you’re of truly Napoleonic proportions, you can throw in a lowering spring to get the seat down to just 30.5 inches off the deck.
      The 2021 Ducati Monster gets all of Borgo Panigale’s standard technological fare, including cornering ABS, traction control, wheelie control, and launch control. All of those interventions can be configured to your liking, or specified in one of the bike’s three riding modes. The riding modes (Sport, Urban, and Touring) are controlled via a switch on the bars and a 4.3-inch TFT dash keeps the rider updated.

      Last but not least, for 2021 Ducati is unveiling decal sets to help buyers separate their Monster from the crowd. The Monster will be available in Ducati Red and Dark Stealth with black wheels or Aviator Grey with red wheels in ’21, though price varies by color. If you want a small windshield and a pillion cover, you’ll need to upgrade to the Monster Plus, which is available in the same three hues.

      The 2021 Ducati Monster will hit dealers in April, available in 3 colours - the standard Ducati Red, Dark Stealth and Aviator Grey. There will also be a Monster Plus which comes with upgraded Ohlins and other goodies. We will confirm the pricing once we hear back from Ducati Singapore.
