All the reviews of the ST3 I have read have been positive.

It will be interesting to see how the Euro intro of the GSX-R750 compare with its "home" release in japan

I think Ducati has turned Japanese in the ST3's styling while the new Yamaha R1 has turned Italian in styling. I like the new ST3, but it just doesn't do it for me. I saw a new R1 in the flesh the other day and was awestruck.



Any bets on how long it takes Yossef to trash the camcorder again? We should get a pool going. As always, I enjoy Yossef's reporting.

Sure looks like a Honda/Kawasaki blend. What's up with Ducati. All the price and no style. And the red saturation is off on your digital camera (surely the ST3 isn't tomato orange).

Great review as usual Yossef. It appears the ST3 is a nice bike to live with, but styling-wise looks like the '99 VFR I had a few years back.

I've enjoyed my ST4 so much that I was anticipating purchasing a new one following a re-style. Apparently the VFR (used one) is so legendary here that Ducati stole all the old upper fairings.



I'll be keeping my 2000 ST for now. For added wind protection I bought an Electra Glide.



On the bright side, at least they stopped short of stealing old Concours upper fairings.

I had the same problem. Sent several e-mails to the guys, no response. Finally re-subscribed, although I was only a few months into my renewal and my credit card had definitely been charged. Worked like a charm. Perhaps what the good fairy that sits in the sky is telling us is that the cost of subscribing is really $23.88....

SA asks, "How do you like the new fairing style for the Ducati ST's?"



Looks like a Honda from the front. That's the first thing I saw when I looked at the front image. It shocked me until I remembered they'd gone this way with the ST. It may be more functional but do people really by a Duc for functionality? What do I know though, I like the way the 999/749 look.
