Ducati M695, 06-08
The smaller power strokes, lower gearing and importantly, price make it one of the best Ducati choices if "in town" driving is a primary use. There were lots of then sold in San Francisco -
The M695 has enough power and smoothness to be happy on the backroads, too.
Ducati tuning available.
Nemesis ECU Tuning
While the peak hp improvement numbers are what
people "look at", the biggest difference in EC997 dyno tuning (over
simplistic Dynojet dyno tuning) is that with the EC997's low inertia
and the realtime HP readout, we can adjust the fueling at part
throttle cruise, fuel and ignition to what the engine actually
"wants", rather than tuning to a so-called "AFR" that it's "supposed
With the proven philosophy of "tuning to Best Power and Engine Smoothness" and experience with over 30 different FI tuning programs, we can make just about every bike run better than "AFR" tuning and can definitely make better custom maps than simply dropping in a "pre-mapped" DP ECU.
With Tuneboy Software and Nemesis or Microtec
ECU's, you can buy that non-Ducati exhaust system and eliminate the
need for the DP ECU.

Love the bike.
Since we've done ~30 different shift improvement kits, we decided to make a kit to bring the duc shift mechanism into the 21th century and up to Factory Pro standards.
The famous Factorini Provente Shift Kit is now available for the Ducati Twins.
Factorini Provente designed and manufactured Microbearing Detent Arm and Factorini Provente designed Detent Spring will firm up the shift feel and virtually eliminates missed shifts - both upshifting and downshifting and neutral is easier to find.Trackday and race bikes
Eliminates the need for that old, annoying "ducati trick" of removing the "really kinda necessary" neutral detent that was done to quicken up the shifting on trackday and race bikes - all too often...... (did I mention that when I put a bike in neutral on the dyno, that I really prefer it to STAY in neutral and not "wander into 1st gear by itself? :-)
Misses fewer shifts.
Provente Microbearing Detent Arm and Factorini Provente Detent
Installation: Less than 2 hours to install with impact wrench and large socket set.
Can I install it myself? Yes - If you can remove the clutch assembly, you can do this.

Just rode bike awesome shifting, smooth, smooth smooth
Lightweight Shift Shaft Centering Spring
For when you decide that you want lighter feeling shift lever action for better feel.
A more normal, lighter foot shift pressure is less unsettling.
Decreases lever effort required to make a shift.
Makes foot shift pressure more like other sportbikes.
Since you are not having to push so hard to move the lever, it's easier to find neutral.
Like your rearsets? But, no matter how you lube, shim, adjust the arcs, angles and lengths, it's still annoyingly stiff to shift?

GO THROUGH ALL GEARS - UP AND DOWN! You will have to turn the clutch shaft to allow the dogs and slots to line up and complete the shift.
9. The shift action should be slightly firmer and much quicker.
10. If it doesn't feel right, IT ISN'T!! and it won't fix itself after you ride it. RECHECK YOUR WORK.

|The extension of the laboratory
for engines of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology was completed
in about 1935. Its architect was Rudolf Otto Salvisberg (1882-1940).
He had a successful career in Berlin but returned to Switzerland after
the advent of the Nazis. His architectural style was somewhat similar
to that of Erich Mendelsohn. The staircase of the laboratory is in normal
use but well preserved.
