The 888 Strada is also known as the Biposto. I want the chance to take people out on it, rather than have it as a bike for 1, which I acknowledge it will obviously be most of the time.
It is a nostalgia thing for me. I had a 900ss before my kids came along and based on the fact that the 888 was the bike that proved Ducati was a serious race machine again by winning the WSB, I always said I would own one some day. However, family plans came round and I am now the proud father of 2 teenagers, rather than a Ducati 888.
They do come up, but they are few and far between.
