Corse #003 Sighted

I went to Ducati Miami to check on the Corse they had on Cycle Trader, and I must say I was quite dissapointed .
IN MY OPINION (sorry sgcullen )

Cons

-[The paint is weak compared to that of the regular 1000, the regular 1000 has more depth, the corse one is lighter, and looks red-orangeish {not that much}

-[ The seat, which is shown on pictures as being a beautiful 2 tone color looked... well... Cheap The color didn't look anywhere near that of the paint, (the only way it looks like the same color is on pictures) It was more of like the red that Ducati, and Ferrari use on their race machines so they look red and visible on camera. It looked rather poor

-[ Costs more than a R, while it is based on an S, and doesn't even have marchesinis

Pros

-[ I got to see an MV ... again

-[ Another special edition I have witnessed

-[ It's limited

-[ I got a 998 Evoluzione kit brochure from the guy with the R in the pictures I posted earlier

-[ Going to DUCATIMIAMI is always a good thing (except when you fall in love with a tamburini they had sitting in the showroon for 1 year, and coming shortly after my last visit, and having to find out that my baby has been sold

Just wanted to let you guys know

Yeah, they do, and I am unfortunately no closer to having it than I was 1 year ago

Interesting comments, I thought that the limited editions got that little more love and attention.
I saw my first Corse at the Sydney bike show, can't remember the finish, however I do agree on the orange/red...or whatever colour its supposed to be (no offence to owners!) I would have gone for the Mamba over the Corse....

This photo is by sgcullen (sorry for using your amazingly detailed photos against you ) If you look closely, you can see the actual color of the seat. It looks like this

Does anyone know if the seat that Alex has on his replicas is the one from MV-SP, or is it his own?

Since his paint is stock MV red, it might be interesting to see up close, after seeing a real corse.
