Absolutely. This is exactly what Ducati are trying to do - freshen their range at the same time as cost-cutting. They are in deep trouble, and this is a sensible move for them to make.

Would you rather have:



Porsche Boxter



or



Honda S2000



or



Nissan 350z



If you want the Porsche, then you understand why people want Ducatis because both the Honda and Nissan are faster and maintenance free.

Tax deferrable bonds. Due to the tax credit on personal mortgages, tax deferrable bonds return a bigger yield than the financing cost on my mortgage. You get taxed on savings accounts i.e. if you max out your mortgage and put it into your savings youÂ’ll be making a loss.



Max out your mortgage and buy I bonds and you will make a couple of points. Money for nothing ... (or use of a Harley for nothing)

I would say that my Honda RC51 does have soul. Or at least enough to go smoking past the 998's that I encountered on the track days that I participated in when using it for that purpose. Now I use it on the street. My no-souled ZX10 now simply vaporizes the various 999's it encounters. Though I admit the ZX10 did leave $10-20K unvaporized in my checking account compared to the fabulous Ducati superbike variation.

He also likes to compare the 2005 version of one bike to the 2001 version of another. He's slipperier than a greased eel. You have to watch him.
