Do you have to use a special cleaner on this paint finish to keep it looking like new?

From what I have gathered, just a mild dish detergent like Lemon Joy. No Dawn, Waxes or Detailers etc . I think we are going to have Matte Ceramic applied which should afford lasting protection.

That's a great idea, if it actually protects the paint from scratches. I've see some matte black tanks that show every little scratch, which would drive me nuts! There are some products available to keep matte paint clean, (example: Adam's Matte Detailer) but they won't protect it from scratches. That orange is really awesome looking paint, never seen anything like it!

Thanks, looks really good in the 馃尀 I ride with some peeps that have the Ducati Matte Ceramic and recommended. I didn't know Ceramic existed for Matte. lol
This is probably not the case, but if you put the matte ceramic on regular gloss paint, would it provide a matte finish to the gloss?

I don't know. 馃ぃ
I just bought a matte silver S3 and wondered the same thing. You don't want a shine so why put that on it. Good info.
