A Red Icon

It was, to be honest, a difficult choice.  I like all the versions of the 800.  I ended up choosing the Red Icon because :

  • It was the cheapest and I have a lot of stuff I want to customise on the bike so it makes sense to not spend too much up front
  • I love the Ducati red.  Beautiful iconic color (pun intended) that does remind me that this bike is a Ducati.
  • I didn’t want wire wheels (although they’re better off-road).  The cast wheels run tubeless tires which are both safer and easier to repair in case of puncture.

Next post I will start detailing the accessories that I fitted.
