A buddy of mine got an FJR1300 last summer, he loves it so much I think he waxes it with his toothbrush.

The more you check those out the better they look, I've never ridden one but looking his over shows a real attention to detail, Beautiful well made bike's.

"course then there's the Nissan 350Z in platinum and black leather.

I'm lusting after a Sport 1000 but dont ya think they're missing the interest peak if they won't be in production until 2 yrs after their debut? 2 years is a long time in product life cycles these days.

True, I don't really see why they should cost that much -- basically they are the same as the current SS1000 models, with cheaper (or no) bodywork. Don't believe that wire-spoke wheels etc should add that much to the cost.



Maybe is is the recent devaluation of the Euro vs USD that is causing the price to increase?

I think it's supply and demand. Ducati is making these in limited numbers so they need to charge a bit more due to lesser volume and if the fanatics will pay it, why not?

Default Re: So What To Do With Pierre?

The Multistrada is an extraordinary design. Completely original with proportions and

details that are truly fresh and elegant with a touch of aggressiveness. The only

questionable item is the nose below the windscreen (which is masterfully sculpted), which is somewhat resultant as opposed to being more object oriented.

Ducati had a display at the New York show in January, with showroom condition 70s vintage 750 SS, 750 Sport and 750 GT standing in front of the new Sport Classics. Wow! The originals were gorgeous, but so were the new models. It's sure tempting to put in an order on the Smart replica this year, even if I wouldn't see it for over two years!
