I did torture myself & ride down to duc dealer & he started it up & WOW it sounds... well like a Ducati. Very impressed even with stock pipes!!!!!!!
Rode a 2010 MTS12 and then got on a 13 that wasn't yet ready to ride, so can't say anything about the 13 underway. But the seat is easily 2" longer and WAY more comfortable. Maybe just because of the change to the seat, but the angle on my knees felt noticeably a bit more open too.
