It will, im sure Ducati will come through with something suitable for it. At least with a bike priced in the range the 899 is, there's more of a chance for stronger aftermarket support.haven't read anything on the 899 track performance yet.
It'll be interesting to see how the suspension compares.
Here is a first ride report done on the track at Imola. It was in the wet though but the writer praises the DTC and other electronics in those conditionsLive at the track even though I am 400 kms from it, early days was the Hyper, then a S4R and now it's the Streetfighter 848. Have been eyeballing the RC8 R, but I reckon the 899 might be the baby, anyone done a track day on it yet.
Thanks for sharing, I guess it makes the 899 more of a go anywhere bike in some ways. At least for those commuting with it within the city and suburbs it will be a great ride
great review. read the whole thing
thanks for the wicked find, the video can be seen embedded below:Another treat for you guys, I'm sure you have seen it but just in case...

This solidified the 899 as the perfect all-around in my mind. Track, street, commuter.
Watch that TC light when he gets on the gas out of the corners! Woo hoo!
