X-metal was the first one to come out in 2004, which was then replaced with Carbon in 2005.

no, none of the new Juliets except the WBC Ichiro have serial numbers. I am pretty sure of this, but talk to Dr.J to be 100% sure, or glitter pants as he is sometimes referred to.

Any Juliets produced now has no serial numbers. I think the last one was the WBC Ichiro in 2006.

Edit- you beat me to the answer Josh!

Thank you gentlemen,

it was indeed the Ichiro that made me believe special editions still had serial numbers.

Last time I was there, my Vault had an original X-Metal Ducati Juliet next to the Carbon Juliets. I can't remember the price, but it was well beyond my boundaries.

and here they are for sale

a friend of mine has both the x metal and carbon variants with serial numbers. He got lucky and stumbled on to the x metal...Funny thing, he can't wear any of his collection except the 4 RX pairs he has HAHA

Truthfully, I don't know nearly as much about the X-Metals as some of you give me credit for. Sure, I own a few, but I'm more knowledgeable when it comes to "getting" them than I am when it comes the nitty gritty.

Okay, now I'm confused again: so the Carbon one did at one point have a serial? Presumable those produced before 2004?But when did the Ducati version change from X metal to Carbon?
The serials list on the OR lists only the X metal version (DUCATI######).

When the first Carbon ducati frames came out they did have a serial, it was just a frame color change. At some point after that all main stream juliets stopping having the serial numbers on the frames so there were no more serials on the ducati's either.
I have a carbon & and x-metal with a ducatiXXXX serial, to me it really makes them more desirable as a ducati piece because unlike other styles which have red icons and usually some inner frame insignia the only thing that made the juliet a ducati was the rubber and the lens one the serial was removed (meaning any carbon frame could be modded to be an exact ducati replica).

The X-metal Ducati was only in 2003. After a year, they switched to Carbon and continue.

If you have a chance of acquiring one of these serial numbered versions, dont hesitate, that is, if you are into x metals. The serial numbers make these pairs distinct.
