I might just have to buy that obsolete V-Twin. If Duc doesn't grab market share with this bike, I'll be very surprised.

Impossible. The GMP says V-Twins suck and Ducati does too. How can you go against that logic?

It ain't legal
 
The last hurrah for the racing V-Twin is nice looking and has impressive numbers but it ain't legal yet in any racing series. I'll wait for a yellow V-4 boys..

It depends on whether kpaul's daughter's boyfriend likes it.

Uhhh... because you'll be racing it?



Definitely a DSRT statement...

Yes, and two-thirds of that are available at a tick above idle. What a nice engine for real-world street riding.

And your Honda Fit is racing in what class?

With some help from a Power Commander, you could probably eradicate the little EPA-induced dip in torque too...yummy.

How much market share?
 
When Ducati's total production can't exceed 38,000 bikes a year without getting a new factory?
