Not that I'm not happy with my 675R cos' I am and I've already had it for 18 months, but it will drop in value as soon as the 2013s land, they are just much more value and will be better. Unless you're dead set on the current (old) style.
I just don't intent on selling mine. I bought mine because when I first saw a leaked photo on it I was sold. I went to the dealer the next day and put a down payment on it.

I like that they have tried this new look. They well only improve on it in years to come.

My bike is my gem, I don't care if someone had a new model that performs better. I still wake up, look into the garage and smile everytime I see my bike. Honestly I will never need the better engine. My skill level isn't at that point to notice.

The projectors would have been great if the changed them to retrofit.

Get on your bike and ride. All the other shit just fades away.

I still get those 'oh shit' moments.... The day I don't, is the day I stop riding.

You sir are a Ducatisti in the making... Who can honestly talk shit about ducati?
They have some of the best bikes out there period, maybe a bit pricier but damn they have some selction that NO ONE can compete against... Man i would love a panigale Tri-colore.. or an S with some white paint added on.
After the panigale, the diavel would just be to damn awesome..

Most of you people are not capable of being your GD self, to damn worried about being politcally correct.

Never said I didnt like that bike, I just would not own the 848. It looks good, but that is about it. The 1199 is a sweet bike and if I needed a liter bike I would definitely look into one after looking at the RSV4 of course.

I am looking forward to their future production line, since Audi now owns them and I bet we see some awesome bikes come from them, just look at the 1199 for example.

Ducatis are cool, I just dont want one, there are other bikes I would rather buy before most Ducatis in the same area.

Where the hell are you seeing a gsxr? I see more Honda than anything on the bike, but it still is not close to that. Just because they are going with the low mount exhaust which is what everyone is doing now, does not make it a gsxr look alike.

I liked the dry clutch, it let me know when a wanker with a smug smile was about to roll up.
