Smile Road Ducati - 748 v 749

Hi there I'm pottering round the idea of a road Ducati. Always like the 748 but the 749 is another option. Which is the better bike for the road?

For me, it has to be the 748.

For you the 749 it's quite a bit roomier the 748 is very cramped & you are quite a tall chap + the streta engine is much smoother.

Having said that I think the748 is a better looking bike IMO.

Look in the bikes for sale and you will see my beaut 749 for sale, far more 'comfy' than a 748
