Sweetness. Are most slipper clutches exposed like that top pic?

Yeah, most Ducatis use a dry clutch, and it makes it look really cool when they have the exposed cover on them.

Yep, it's a "dry" clutch, most Duc's run them.

There are two main advantages to a dry clutch
1. You can change the plates in under 10 minutes start to finish.
2. The particles from the clutch don't contaminate the gearbox / engine oil.

The big disadvantages are:
1. The Dry clutch tends to be wear more quickly (then make it a slipper and that increases the wear even more)
2. They tend to be more "grabby" than a wet clutch, but that's probably down more to the clutch material that anything else.
3. They are noisy, really, really noisy especially with an open cover.  But some Ducati owners really like the clutch "rattle". (It doesn't bother me personally on my 748 but I could live without it).


I think the biggest change (other than it's an all new bike) is that everyone that has seen & heard it at the Motegi test says it's a V4, not a V5 like the 990 was...

I like the straight out the lower faring exhaust. That sucker must be loud.

Do you think little "Pedrobot" dropped that new bike? I hope he didn't hurt himself even worse!

Do those new 800cc bikes look a lot shorter or is it just me?

I like the rear wheel hugger, and of course a lot of other things on there.
