Default There goes the bank account

Damn Yosef! Your report on the MV Agusta Brutale inspired me to buy one and now this!



All three sport classics are gorgeous. I won't be buying a Paul Smart or a GT1000 simply because the riding position is torturous and there's no place to put a girl.



The GT1000 is coming out in the summer and I will be paying a visit to my local Ducati dealer.

I guess Ducati is an acquired taste that I have not acquired... They are certainly unique motorcycles and inspire great passion among Ducati aficionados.

Thanks again Yossi for a great article, you really pushed some buttons with this one. One of my most emotional bikes ever was a 1988 Ducati Paso 750, it was 1992-3 and as a poor student I didn't have money for anything else that year. I bought it as a comfortable replacement for a 1987 GSX-R750 I had and put 30000 km on it that year and the problems just wouldn't stop coming. It was also the best sounding bike I ever owned with the after market Termignoni silencers I put on it.

It was really all-japanese bikes for me ever since, but I really loved that bike.

Maybe now that I'm somewhat settled I could afford another bike with some "character".

Great artical, I checked those two out at the IMS in Seattle and immediatly fell in lust...



The GT model would be more my cuppa' tea though. I proved to myself with the Thruxton that I'm not a skinny kid in my teen's, turning everything I could get my hands on into a cafe` bike anymore. I still love the look and style of cafe` bikes, these flip my switch everytime. Maybe I could buy one and put it in the front room to look at.......



I don't find Ducati re-building designs from their past as predictable anymore than Triumph or Mini and VW. Niether of the cars are true reps, and BMC/ British Leyland doesn't even exist anymore. Predictable would be one of the Japanese companys building a "GB' styled bike. A 6 cylinder 250 Honda Hailwood rep with lights would be pretty cool though...Or a sohc 750 four rep.
