I picked up the grill when I picked up the bike last week, but the dealer just sold me the grill without the ring that you need to mount it to the bike. To hopefully help avoid confusion, when you order the grill (part number 97380181A) you also need the trim ring (part number 97380381A) if you have the non-urban enduro model. There is also another kit that's currently in pre-order only (part number 97380391A), but it's more expensive, and to be honest I'm not sure how that would work with the existing trim ring on the Icon.

The kits don't come with any instructions, but it was extremely easy to figure out. The ring is mounted with a single allen bolt into a standard metric 7mm nylock nut underneath the headlight, so after you remove that bolt the ring comes right off. The new ring goes back on the same way, and it has a cutout for the speedo to make sure you line it up right. Reuse the same nut and bolt to secure the ring, then attach the grill with the 4 provided bolts and nuts (same as the mounting bolt/nut), and you're done.

Sorry for the poor picture - it was raining all day yesterday, so I didn't get a chance to take it outside. I rode about 100 miles on Saturday though which was great!

I like it!!
How much in total?
That's an interesting question because my dealer and I had a little disagreement over the price. I found the grill online at several places for $99 and the trim ring for $59, but the parts guy said his price was $113 and $119 respectively. I pulled out my phone and showed him I could buy it online for much, much lower, and he agreed to match it. He claimed the place I looked it up (pure-ducati.com) had made an error in pricing the ring too low, so he called them to tell them it was too low and they subsequently raised the price! Kinda annoying they'd have confusion over something like that, but I guess since it's a brand new line for them there are some kinks to work out. In my opinion, they should have also known to tell me to buy the ring along with the grill to mount it, but I'm sure they'll get their stuff dialed in more in the near future. Also FWIW, I think the quality for the pieces is acceptable at the $59+$99 price level, but there is no way I would have paid $113+$119 for it. It's simply not worth that kind of money and is borderline questionable at the lower price level (again just my opinion).

This is one of the coolest accessories in my opinion. I am definitely going to buy it. Its all for looks but its super easy to install and makes a big difference in the styling of the bike.

You did a great job with this. It looks good.

Thank you! I agree with you. I also ordered the factory skid plate, and the only other option I'm considering is exhaust and maybe frame sliders for it.

Meanwhile a universal 7" headlight grill similar (but admittedly not as classy looking) is about 5 dollars on ebay direct from China.

The prices on these parts and the whole piecemeal instead of kit form is REALLY turning me off on the marketing scheme to sell these bikes as customize-able.

I'm patiently waiting for all of the aftermarket stuff to show up because I can't pay 200 dollars for a headlamp grill :)

I about choked last year buying a Bosch reflector and lens for my BMW for 200 dollars. And they are actual mandatory parts you need, haha.

The price of the foot pegs that look like off road ones made me stop breathing for a second as well. I bought ones that looked just like them for my former Yamaha for 10.50 on ebay.

As much as I like the billet parts I have got so far they also do the billet headlight ring priced at £127 . Add to that you have to but the 4 extra brackets that look like they stick on for £105 plus having to buy the grill at around £70. That's a bit steep really for that look.

Funny I was looking for foot pegs last night and found some should fit for a triumph scrambler in many colours and adjustable and the 24mm wide part the same. Ducati ones £160 these ranged from £40-56 a pair.
Must look at the grills then too.
