Bike expected this week, super excited! Showroom offered 20,000INR aprox $300 worth of accessories.
Sales are bad they say due to high bike prices.
Anyways, I will surely be allowed to do a full Unboxing of it! As its the first 2021 model to be sold in my City.

Thank you all! Registrations in process now! Out of all Ducati's this one looked the best actually!
Happy with the decision!
Thanks to all Youtubers to help me out in the decision! Yammi Noob, Sagar Shelkar, Bruno one of the select few!

Congrats on the booking! So far I have only put some tank pads (Stickers like), A Crash guard (Planning to take it off when riding in cities.). Nothing apart from these. Planning to get a Magnetic Tank bag, a Mud guard.
Anything more I try to add I feel I am simply spoiling the Italian Style. Bike simply looks stunning without anything on!
I think after a year or so I would really do most of the modifications.

Thats nice. Yes the stock bike looks stunning, can't wait to get my hands on it. I do want to get the basic protection though. Any recommendations to get these from (third party ones)?

Ducati showroom people helped me with that as well, suggested which ones I could go with.
I have put the crash guard, but after looking at it, I saw that the handle bar is more wider then the crash guard, so that is not so much useful in cities. When going off road surely you will need Barkbusters, Crash Guards.
Before I got the bike, even I was more like what I would put on the bike to safe guard bike and myself. Then at showroom they told me the insurance will cover everything 100% first year so I could just enjoy the stock bike and learn to ride it very carefully.
I bought bike cover from outside, I think it's Tarmac cover, soft cotton inside and water resistant. New Helmets from Bell, Scrambler Jacket and Ducati Gloves, Orazo shoes. There are many shops in Pune which sell these stuff, so maybe visit nearest superbike accessories store in your city.
1 last thing, I have to put a decent mud guard, and AirTag for theft, spoils the rear jacket and full back seat in rain.

Thank you! Very helpful.

Ducati told me to get the mount for the top box. It prevents the back of the jacket and the seat from getting dirty in rain... and it helps for luggage mounting (of course!).

Ok that will surely work. But for me that is a bit overkill on style part. I bought a Magnetic tank bag which looks sweet. And put a small patch of Fibre between the number plate and mudguard to avoid getting the water inside. And that is removable very easily. Biking Superstore did it for me here. Where are you from?

Am from Bangalore. Bike delivery expected by mid of next week.

Being a cyclist earlier, I used to put really thin, plastic fenders with zip ties, to ride in the rain. I think these should fill in the gap between the rear fender and the numberplate holder, thus preventing the water and rain to splash upwards. These are really thin plastic sheet ones, that you can also cut with a pair of scissors to suit the shape and size. Will try this out when I get the bike, if successful, will post the pictures.

So the seat feels really hard after riding for an hour or 2. Still not enough cushion.
I went on my first mountain climb, check it out.
