Congrats on the bike, and welcome.
Which color did you choose, and did you get a mono or biposto version?

Treat gently? I follow the break-in guidelines and have had great luck with my Italian bikes. Don't baby it, but mostly observe the rev limits and make sure you get your initial service done.

I haven't been able to get a workshop manual yet, but I'm in the US.

There's an ongoing debate about heat, but that seems to have "cooled down" (pun intended) a bit lately. Everyone seems to agree that they run hotter than is ideal and there has been much discusion on remedies. The jury is still out.

Once it's broken in, I think it'll run slightly cooler. Mine does, and it's at about 2500 miles now. I'm still trying to get mine a bit cooler than that, but I'm not sure I'll have any more data for a while. The weather has cooled down enough that I'm not seeing the problem anymore, unless I'm sitting in traffic.

welcome!

I am also very interested in the workshop manual, perhaps an online source somewhere?

There are some workshop manuals on this site. In media or articles, can't remember. I downloaded them for quick access. Not specific for your bike, but enough info to help with most DIY projects.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.
