Overall Review

I love owning and riding my bike, it's still one of the best sounding bikes I've ridden or owned. It's a joy to ride and it's still one of the fastest bikes on the road. The Ohlins and Brembo bits are still way over my riding capability and the way it pulls out of corners will always leave a huge smile on your face. In my opinion everyone should try and own this bike just once!

Strengths

First Ducati to have the 1198cc engine in it, means you get over 25bhp over the standard Ducati 1098 and some very nice body work! Limited run means you don't find many of these bikes out on the road and they are so easy to ride fast.

Weaknesses

Cost of ownership is sometimes the downside, if you damage anything on this bike expect to pay big bucks for original replacement parts! the tail piece is over £8,500 alone to purchase from Ducati and servicing is typically between £500 to £1000!
