1st or second?

Second thoughts? nah

My first thought was to get the RR - oh how we can dream....

Second choice was the Motard!!!

Yeah, those pipes are sweet...

and i'm thinking that the 200hp claim is valid from what I have read, but we'll see

If i got one i'd probably spend the first week just listening to it.

Had to use my step ladder to change a light bulb cos i don't get on with my real ladder.

Once you've ridden an R7 you'll never want anything else.


Is this the moment when i admit to having one "still in the crate" back in Holland


as for the duc. Stunning bike and stunning concept but which rises quicker? the revs or the workshop bills

revs rising

According to the hype, I reckon the revs.....

Like the MotoGP machine the Ducati Desmosedici RR is built to an exquisite level of quality; there’s simply nothing you can buy that comes close. Unlike the race bike the Desmosedici RR actually comes with a three-year warrantee and three-years free servicing, which is an astonishing feat from Ducati.



an uncrated R7?? how much would that be worth?

So what is a rusty 9 year old Yamaha worth That should get you going!!! and just in case... How many ponies did they have, I'm guessing 130-135hp???

was one of the first 300 homo R7's . No idea what it's worth but it's one of my all time fav bikes.

It was either that or a train set for my retirement days. Think the train set might be quicker
