I am interested in 1198R which is a year away!!
i'm also finally happy with my 999r now i've had it put together properly, I don't want to change for another year or so and the 999 2nd hand prices will have calmed down a bit by then! Gonna be some cheap bikes around over the next few months!

Great time to buy an 'r' if you ask me

Id settle for the engine, electrics and injectors. Then graft it into my 748 frame. He he.

Mind you, it would more than likely end up costing more than a new 1098 anyhow. Doh!

I still think that the design of the 1098 is pretty much a mix of things front light of the desmo, intakes of the 916, exhausts of the 916, rear lights like the MV and Aprilias.

Still it works quite nice as a package. Looks compact, simple around the engine, beefy around the exhausts, all good things and I would consider buying one. I just think that they should have gone with a proper beefy double sided swingarm.

I'll may consider one when the hype will be over and they will release a proper R version. In the meantime, I need to finish that SPS project and get myself a T8 SP4.

Still well done Ducati, because a 999 was never going to be on my shopping list.

"I can't think of many other people who have bought successive generations of Ducati over many, many years, I guess if you were as old as Monty you would have had every Model (motorcyclewise )"

Oi, Ray, I represent that remark.........

I have been thinking how I will try to find a crash damaged one and shoehorn the motor into the ST4S-now that would be one sick motorcycle-Yeehaa.

Well after a break from Ducati's with a GSXR750 K6 ( anyone want to but one? ) i've put a deposit on a 1098S with Riders in Bristol, now have the long wait until April and months of thumbing through the accessories catalogue
