My '12 Diavel came with a slipper clutch standard, but no steering damper. Although with 28 degrees rake it doesn't need a steering damper, the bike is pretty solid.
My previous Ducati, a 2001 748S, came with a non-Ohlins adjustable (if I recall correctly, pretty sure it was adjustable) steering damper.
The R and SP/SPS models always get the best bits from Ducati...
scollins, congrats on getting your knee down the first time! Mine was so exciting, I still remember like it was yesterday! Glad you had a good track day.
