Don't be an idiot, why would you swap a relatively rare Ducati for a dime a dozen Honda clone?

With a 749R, you could always tell yourself that, if you were good enough, you could be riding it in Supersport. If only you had the time and bit more money.....

Now, with an 848, it's not eligible is it

If I could clear my debts right now (and have enough to keep living) it would be back to no 248 749r for me too....

The 749R is one of my all-time favourite bikes. In fact YOUR 749R is one of my all-time favourite bikes, so it had better stay where it is or I'll be having words with you.
