Finally - two points of view, one from a journo friend and the other through Ducati directly states on the one hand impressive power but on the other UJM looks - will that tempt those that have bought their R1s and Gixxers back to the fold - time will tell but if it does look like a UJM best stick to our 99Xs then.
At the end of the day there's lots of speculation, probably best wait for the genuine tune from the organ grinder not the grunts from the monkeys and rumour-mongers. Whichever way up it won't better the 'Sedici
NO dealers have seen the new bike yet, I am in regular contact with the guys at a main Ducati store in the US and they have had no more info than the european dealers.
With photos flying round the world in seconds nowadays, do you think that if there was a 1098 in the USA being shown arround it would stay covered up???
Its just a case of "you heard it here first"
Whatever will be, will be.
But I am looking forward to the 1098 (as a dealer whos livelihood depends on it!)
I'm off to Milan to see it on the 12th. cant wait!!!! photos will be sent!
