first post!

how much will it cost?

arm and leg.. or first born.

I'd say around 45,000 USD.

although I'm probably low.

I wonder if the team sponsor decal kit includes Marlboro stickers and if I can get Philip Morris to help underwrite the cost.



Cool that they went with the twin pulse firing order for the V twin sound!

Interesting. The front looks like it was inspired by the head of the Alien.

HD used to time their dirt track bikes so that both cylinders fired on the same stroke and they called it a "twingle". So if Ducati has a 4 fire like a twin does that make it a "Fwin"?

Yikes! Who's gonna chance wrecking a 65K motorcycle? Maybe Ducati will presand the sides of the tires so that the owners won't have the embarassment of chicken stips.
