its a good price but if you don't mind going used you can get a 99-00 750- 900ss for just a little more. Personally Id rather have a slightly used one with two brakes in the front.

There are some things nobody needs in this world, and a bright red, hunchback, warp-speed 900cc café racer is one of them -- but I want one anyway, and on some days I actually believe I need one. That is why they are dangerous.

IMO I would spend a little more to get a little more. I have a '99 900SSFF and I love it. When you enter into the world of Ducati, prepare yourself for a "different" riding experience. Would this be your first Duc?

Much as I love Ducatis and in particular the Supersport/Sport line... I'd never recommend one as a first bike. If you haven't ridden before, I suggest a smaller bike 400-500cc and a 'Standard' style. New riders generally drop their bike during the learning process, so I'd also suggest getting a 'used' one to start - that way it won't traumatize you so much when you ding the tank and scratch up the paintwork..

You want lightness and maneouverability for your first bike - Ducatis excel at speed in turns under the control of more advanced riders.

Cheers, Bill (BamBam)

Yeah, what he said. I too would not recommend a Ducati as a first bike. This is something you do not want to drop. Everything Ducati is expensive.
