Now there's a SMART man

NOT only are they beautiful, They are powerful and have great handling so it's not all looks

Only problem I found is half of the owners never really ride them like they are suppose too

Why buy one then? Just to say you have one?

Need to ride fast, Need to ride Hard, Just need to ride PERIOD!!!

Other bikes owned 2000 748 and 2000 R6 of course they where all hooked up as well.

I have to admit I agree. I would give my left nut for a 998R

that is soo true. but i just happen to ran into a rider whose duc is all scratched up and dirty. i was shocked to see that it was a 998 testastretta!!!!!! even more suprising is that he got it 2 weeks ago and already 800 miles! said that he's been to the track twice! now theres sumbody who really appreciates his duck
now im curisous about some duc terms
what is a testastretta? or desmodromic? or desmoquattro? or desmodue? or that logo DUCATI CORSE? im askin coz i think my next ride will be the monster 600 ie

The answers to all your questions are on the Ducati website somewhere within the 'tech' section. How do I know? Because I'm new to this Ducati stuff and had the very same questions myself. I'd answer them for you, but I think the Ducati website would do a better job of explaining than I'm capable of.

Happy Reading!

Look for a 1992 to 2002 900SS with low mileage and a maintenance record at a reputable dealer. Many people buy them and add all of the goodies and them sell them because they are too fast or uncomfortable.

Once you try track, you never go back.

Ah, behold, the Curse that IS Ducati. I'm the same way. I wasn't too fond of them until I saw and heard one up close. From then on out, that is my "if I ever win the lottery" scenario.

However, eventually, I foresee myself on one. I lOVE the 748 R(?)...the grey with red rims. I don't know if their legal here (?), but I love the looks of it.

That's not the R that's the 2002 748 S model... And yes you can get one at your local dealer Even an R if you want but the R is only in Yellow for the 748.

Someday
