Duc is a nut roaster for sure. After 10 minutes riding in 75F, I was over the WOW factor.

Exactly my opinion on Ducati as well. I can't imagine ever owning one. I was fortunate enough to get some seat time on the V4 Panwhatever and holy shit, what a beast. That motor-I just love a V4.

Yeah, that one would be fun to have access to regularly.

Have a wheelie nice day!

Winter sucks.

Go ahead! that thing pull wheelies in 6 gears. Don't listen to the old miserable saggy balls members on here that don't know any better than Kawasaki. Take the extended warranty & enjoy the 2 cyl beast!

No doubt there beautiful No doubt there light No doubt they got good power No doubt they have bling suspension & brakes. There expensive pieces of art, There difficult to make unique, unrealiable, etc, just spend half the money and roll out the showroom on a Z1000 keep your 10 for humiliating Ducati riders on the freeway.

Beautiful bikes, i kinda want one just to stare at it. I dont have any experience with Ducati but obviously italian bikes are known to be troublesome. My buddy just picked up a left over 1299 and on the 3rd ride the header cracked and completely sheared off at the weld. Not a huge problem, its covered but been at the dealer for 4 weeks now.
