Good point. What's all the hype about. Troy won the Championship! Not Ben. He probably don't care but I'm sure he asked the question.

Default Re: Unique, aggressive new graphics. Dare I say, Bold?

Is this another ploy by Ducati to extract money from poor American wannabes by taking a 996 painting it like Bostroms (evil kenival sp?) modern art helmet and charging 20K for it?? I can just imagine some dork saying to himself "if I get this bike my life will finally have some meaning" but he'll be so afraid to wad the thing I will lever leave his car port!! Corporate greed at its worse!

I would have said the same thing, until I rode a Ducati. They ARE special.

I love Ducatis but I gotta agree buying this bike is akin to wearing a John Elway or Michael Jordan jersey; ie some peoples pathetic idea of getting a life. Can you imagine riding the thing though, everyone will think "look at this wanker who thinks he's Ben Bostrum". Get a Ben Bostrum poster, idolize the guy if necessary, but get your own life and realize pretending to be someone you're not will make you look like a loser. Still, I bet they'll probably sell as well as Michael Jordan jerseys...

Default Well maybe, almost, but...

It's a 998, not a 996. I'd bet that it has the testastretta motor. I think the 996R's (with 998 motor) went for about that much.
