Just out of curiosity, is this a 2022 or 2023 model?

I was told they fixed the fork protection on all the 2023 models (not just the black one), as shown in this pic here:

All are 2023's in North America. Only the black ones have those for protection. The white fender is of a different mold without provisions for the fork protectors. You can drill two holes in the right spots and mount them but no easy way to mark the hole locations.

I bought a set of the fork protectors, $10/ea, and plan on putting them on, just have not had time yet.

There might be a few 2022's in Europe but by the time ducati got around to shipping the orders to the states it was 2023 model year, and it's not time for 2024's yet.

Can you share some pics please when you've put them on? I own a 2022 model :)

Did you get the fork protectors from Ducati?

Yes, bought from local dealer.

2023 bikes produced in 2023 have the fork protectors. I have one due in anytime.
Attached are some photos of a 2023 Silk white model with a March 2023 production date. It has the black fork protectors from the factory, and a no zip tie side panel :)
