All people I met tell me the same thing: "Your bikle is very nice, but it deserves a new paint" and I can only understand "this will take a lot of €€€ to be done!"
So, as I have a spare front hugger, I tried to wrap it with a carbon look film. What do you think about?

Might it be the good chance to have a complete carbon look wrapping to the bodywork?

Nicola, well done.
I thought about using carbon foil when it first came out but after seeing it there`s none looking like real carbon unless you stand far enough away. This summer I thought about covering one spare front fender in real carbon as that would be fairly easy but then figured it might not look right with the rest of the bike. Imo at least the lower anthracite part of the fairings should be in carbon, too.
Covering the whole bike in foil ? I don`t know. I surely wouldn`t if the bike had the original paint and all decals. They would be covered and the bike might look strange.

Awesome! The entire bike with a Italian flag Corbin saddle would be insane........Double bonus points if you use a chrome tail bar...bright yellow for the Ducati graphics....

Yes, Miller, I have to make up my mind about graphics too!...
