Ok have to admit. ME LIKEY more now. But would never be able to justify the cost. The headlight setup and look does it for me on the appearance side. I did like the Single Sided Swingarm better. Probably because you do not see many of those around and it gives a much cleaner look to the backend. The exhaust still looks busy. Dont get me wron if it was in my Garage it would be the best bike around. :D Like thats ever gona happen. :(

That issue of Motorcyclist contains an excellent, in depth analysis of the design and engineering thought and efforts that went into this machine. Honest and interesting insights from Alan Cathcart. Ducati's engineers clearly attempted to address all the shortcomings of the 916 series in the redesign.

Those of you who immediately and totally rejected this machine on the sole basis of styling and were offended by the muffler, well, that's fine. I stand by all my comments on that original thread.

I'm impressed enough to put a deposit down on one of the first batch coming into MCC. My friends can't wait to try it for themselves and judge for themselves AFTER seeing it in person and riding it. Oh yeah, I did a little checking and Termignoni and most of the others will absolutely be offering aftermarket exhaust systems for this machine, as expected. End of problem.

Sandman!!! Buddy! Good on you! I'm really impressed with the new 999. I read a quote somewhere about who designed it, the "canned" Ducati response? The wind tunnel :laughing

I want to see the stock exhaust in person, but I kinda like it... Do you have any dates yet?
