forgot to say: I've seen the cd-roms on ebay and I'm not interested in those; rather a "real" book.

Unless something has changed recently, I believe the only thing ever produced is a shop manual that covers the engine. It's a bit out of date and not all that helpful. The Ducati manul -even with the odd english translation - is a dream in comparison. Still, my dealer has been trying to get one for me. It's been about six months and nothing is available. Some US dealers are using photocopies of the manual supplied by the US distributor. Some have nothing to work with at all. Well, that's the story my dealer gave me, anyway.

Rather, ...the shop manual for the enging "is not all that helpful".....UNLESS you are working on the engine, of course. Doh! dm

According to, the mannual only exist in Italiano (Authorized dealer gets a copy of this). An English version is in the work. 3-6 months is what I last heard.

Don't hold your breath. That was the same line of BS I got more than a year ago. Every dealer I've talked to say that they don't even have a manual. All the know they got in training.

IMHO, that's a piss poor way of doing business. Cagiva USA (aka FBF) isn't doing a whole lot of work considering they are the USA importer.
