Hi all. Just bought my first Ducati after 12 years of riding one litre V twins. A 03 749s now sits in the space that was previously occupied by my 02 RSV Millie. I haven't ridden it properly yet ( roll on the weekend ) but I did nail it around the block when it was delivered. I must say I was totally underwhelmed. It felt very underpowered unless revved unmercifully and the front brakes were spongy and lacked feel. It would stop if you pulled the leaver back to the bar but I am used to braking with two fingers .
It did however feel well set up and it was sharp and lively in the handling department.
I am hoping that I haven't made a mistake
