Wondering how many of you have pre orders in? I went yesterday to try and get my name on one, but the dealer told me that all theirs are spoken for. Said its going to be tough getting near one for the first year, at least round these parts...

I'm not going to be ordering anything until I hear about how the bike is when early adopters get it. I don't want to be committed to something that ends up having a whole bunch or problems.

Same here. I like to wait it out, see how the first year of production goes, if all goes as well as I want it to then buying into the 2nd year model is what i'll do.
I'm in no rush to get a bike anyways, i'm happy with what I have but still keeping my options open.

Put a deposit down as soon as I saw the photos and specs from Intermot.

My local dealer had already put in their initial order for 40 units, and were told by Ducati that they would most certainly not be getting all of them.

Not worried about the "first production run" stuff. That motor is anything but new.

I placed an order the day after the debut. I ordered an Icon in red, and got into the first batch of orders that my dealer is placing. I wasn't in the market for a bike and wasn't very impressed from the spy shots, but once I saw it I had to have one.

I also don't care about the first production year thing. That's a well established motor and none of the other important parts are very complicated.

I ordered a Scrambler classic as soon as I heard they came out.I figured most people were going with the Icon due to price and more color options but I really wanted the spoked wheels. Also hope that the vintage seat they are showing is real leather. I ordered as soon as possible because I want the bike as soon as possible and figured there might be demand issues.

Agreed with the others first production thing is a foolish fear. Perhaps if we were talking about a new ground up panigale, perhaps...

The engine and gearbox are tried and true, the suspension is slightly suspect but thats not going to improve significantly from the factory. The only difference year two will make is the chance Ducati adds new paint options...

New paint option are what i'd like to see. I think that with a bike like this Ducati has the opportunity to do something much different with paint where it won't seem wrong.

I've not even bothered with deposit. Dealer says waiting list is already longer than their expected allocation. May hunt around dealers some, but I'm not chasing. If it happens it happens....

I put in my order on a yellow Icon last weekend. I own a small Ducati rental shop here in Denver and currently have a Monster 696 and Monster 796, so I think the Scrambler will be awesome to add to the fleet. I can't wait to break it in :D

went to the dealer ( only one in the country ) and he wants 2000 euros deposit down now, for a bike i won't get till Feb or March 2015, pure madness and he knows it. wish there were more dealers here

In the UK all you need is 200 pounds deposit, i know this as i checked on UK dealers web sites and i also phoned one in Manchester, but you had to put your name down now in the hope to get the first batch

So i will just have to wait and save, as i still want that classic

That sucks! There's 2 local dealers here, and one said I only needed to put down $200. I actually went with the dealer right by house to build a better relationship with them and they required $500, but even still it's not that much money. If they required 2,000 euros I'd ask them how much is that first (jk I actually deal with cross currency stuff in my finance job), and then tell them there's no way especially for a bike no one has ridden yet and I haven't seen!

I placed my order for a 'Classic' (with £250 refundable deposit) last Friday, just before the UK dealers had been asked to submit their first confirmed orders by Ducati (or so I was told)…so I hope mine will be in the first batch for the UK, whenever that will be….
