Wow... I do not use Facebook... jajajaj
thanks for the picks. I can see there is no space at all just the USB charger...
For what the images show you won´t be able to charge the phone while riding right? because there is no place to put it...
thanks Silverlux!!!

Actually you can charge your phone while riding. There is a slot for the cord to go. You will probably have to put something else in the box or the phone will rattle around.

Has anyone who has the bike tried it yet?

Yes, I've charged the phone while riding, charger seemed to work well charging phone fairly quickly.

I put the phone into a "stubby cooler". For non Aussies, A neoprene cover you put on your 350/375 ml beer bottle or can to keep it cool, I've left the stubby cooler in the under seat space for future use.

I do leather work, so I'll be making a custom tool roll with additional tools (tire gauge, hex keys, etc..) and hopefully it'll take up the space I need to have a soft place for my phone. I really wish Ducati would have included the SMS/Call notice icon on the speedo gauge.

Then again, I rarely need to charge my phone since I'm in the habit of charging it overnight at home.

While it's true the under-seat area is not large, it is good to have the seat at a low height :)

many thanks for sharing these pictures @silverluxe. I had been pondering over the provision of a cubby hole in the bike to store my mini toolkit and a bike tire inflator plus a couple of documents. looks like this should do the job. I hate to attach external tool bags or saddle bags on a bike for this purpose.

I believe I saw a strap on underside of seat to which tool kit can be attached?
Yes, mine came with a tool kit strapped to the underside of the seat. I've not delved inside it yet, but it doesn't look to be very large/extensive.

Mines got the tool kit strapped under the seat too and like Jet, I haven't bothered checking it yet, should do just to see what extras it needs added. I pulled apart a tubeless tyre repair kit and repacked it in a small bag so that completely fills the storage space under the seat.

If any of you don't mind, I'd like to see the seat pan showing the toolkit, and the toolkit itself, the contents, too. Demanding bunch of onlookers, ain't we? Thank you!

Thank You! That's better than I expected, I believe Doug's (my husband) Bonneville came with an allen wrench clipped behind the side panel. Thanks again.


Sarah

It might be different in the USA from here in England, but Andy thinks that the allen wrench is used to remove the seat and there's a full(er) toolkit underneath. He's not looked yet ...

Packrat under the seat: stowed all essentials

Here are some photos of the toolkit location and the toolkit contents.

I finally got all essentials packed under the seat.
1 Toolkit without the two fat pieces: Screwdriver handle and spark plug key
!!!! !!! Be very aware of the plus connector. No metal close to it! May short the battery and burn your bike!
2 Screwdriver handle
3 spark plug key
4,5 fat tire kit tools
6 Disk brake lock
7 chain lube
8 padded tire repair kit (strapped under seat)

:)

Wow, that's some impressive packing! You might check now and again that things are staying put and not causing wear on whatever they happen to touch. I've found a section of old inner tube makes a good tool sheath, keeps things from jangling and insulates, too.
