I'm looking to purchase the red 2015 899 Panigale. But, what I want to do is make it stealth black like the picture. It was posted on a forum and the guy said he got it wrapped, not sure how much that costs, the quality, and where to even get it done.

*pictures were resized so kinda they're kind of messed up

Sorry, but in my very, extremely humble opinion, having owned two Ducati's, the only color should be their gorgeous RED or maybe their beautiful yellow, like my last one.

I have no idea what the infatuation with this flat-suede type 'paint' is. It looks like primer to me.:wink:

Painted that color, it look just like any other JAP sports bike.

I would be ashamed to ride it to a Ducati Rally myself.

Just be aware of the downside. A bike that fast shouldn't be invisible. Also, repainting a new $15,000 bike will immediately drop it's resale value. So if you're going to do it plan on owning it a long time or taking a hit on resale.

That said, if it's what you want and you can afford it, there's a great custom shop in Raleigh called Moto Motivo run by Johann Keyser. Here's a link: http://www.motomotivo.com/

BTW, I had an '07 S2R 1000 in "arrest me" red. :p

The wrap is supposed to preserve the original paint and is removable. I'm not sure of the cost, but I believe it's about the same as a quality paint job.

Lmaoo not sure if any of you knew this but the Panigale 1199 came in dark stealth, just like that picture. A lot of jealous haters lol.

Yeah, you can't really steer a discussion on this forum. You'll get people's opinions on any topic of their choosing, regardless of what you ask for.

Meh... if I were to get a black Ducati, it would either be a Diavel or a 1200 Monster. The full fairing Ducs should stay that beautiful Arrest Me Officer Red color

If you want the best results a pro job would be the ticket, though either painted or wrapped I bet it will be expensive!

It's obvious how to do it John, just get a few cans of Rust-oleum spray paint and go at it:biggrin:

Forums are for opinions and discussions Rob.

This isn't speech or rhetoric/ logic class is it?

Every time a politician lies, a Harley Davidson dies.
(explains much lol)
Apropos, because I'm in Hawaii right now, and my brother in law has a Sportster and a Triumph Legend, and we were supposed to go riding together, but the Harley won't start, so he has to rent a bike.

So you won't ride one bike because it's style is not absolutely fabulous, and he's too tenderfooted to figure out why his own bike won't start. Bummer.

Well, I guess you could always go shopping, get a pedi, or work on your tans.

:biggrin:
