Did they stop packaging the off-road kit? It used to come with the crash bars, bash plate, water pump guard, hand guards, radiator guard and handlebar bag, but now I don't see it on the site any more-- the only packages listed are the Touring, Sport, Rally and Urban and none come with protection.

If you go through the Ducati Configuration page, it is still available as an add on. FYI, the problem I had with the kit was the handguards were delaying the off-road package. So, I got frustrated and cancelled my order and purchased the parts individually. The touring package hasn't even been delivered to customers because the centerstand is still on back order and delayed until February.

Ah, thanks. The configuration page wasn't working properly because of a privacy blocker on my pc and the packages weren't showing up, but on the main page all the packages show up except the off-road kit. I'm glad it's still an option, but sorry to hear about all the delays. I'm likely in a better spot than most because I can't ride until the roads melt, probably another 4 (+/-) months or so.

The ORP is still not available in NY. Heated grips, crash bars and center stand on back order "indefinitely". Kinda lame that they talked up the ORP in the sales process but didn't say it wasn't fully available. Can't use it for what it's made for without that stuff. I didn't intend on buying a really tall sport touring bike.

When I bought my DDX on Dec 27, my dealer said the ORP was going to be AT LEAST 8 weeks out. I got online and started searching for one and found one, in stock, at another dealership. I called them and verified they had it in stock. I then told my dealer I wanted to cancel my order and that I'd order directly from this other dealer. My dealer called the other one and did a "dealer trade"(?) and had it shipped for me. Picked it up five days later. I thought that was pretty great service from both dealers.

Nicely done! My last contact with the dealer a couple days ago was still "no estimated ship date". But it's going to be a few more months of winter so no effect on me yet. My plan is to do the 600mi break-in with the stock bike as soon as the roads are salt-free, and then when I bring it in for the first service/reset, leave it there to have the accessories installed. I'm waiting for the ORP, heated grips, center stand, and I have a deposit on the Termi race exhaust but I'm still a little wary of going through with that just yet.
