Pretty damned cool. A bike that has balls AND character. Worth every penny.

"the sharp-edged and plasticky controls feel cheap..."

I know the feeling.

I dig the looks of this thing though. Truly looks like a crashed superbike with bars, which is the point. Tough to do well.

The '09 has won big for Ducati, so I expect nothing less from the new generation.

I got the quivers when I went into the local Duc dealer and saw one sitting in the middle of the showroom. I had to run out with my eyes closed.

As a previous MV owner and a current GT rider...seriously, I know this hit your hot button. But, how about the all-around button...did it hit that? As a person who has lived with an "exotic" or two, do you think this would be an all-rounder? Or, no way?

If it's a NO for you, then the rest of us know the answer...

I don't know what the ergos of the SF would be like for me. However, I've done several 250 mile days on my Brutale and GT. The GT has a much cushier seat and is easier to rack up decent mileage.

I don't think I'd plan a cross-country trip on either one but for general goofing around they're great. I haven't had a bit of trouble with either one of them.

The SF is an all-rounder like the Brutale is an all-rounder. The SF is able to tool around town, and a sport-touring day trip is very doable. However, there are plenty of bikes that do both better. Still, the SF is unquestionably appealing.

Replace stock EPA legal mufflers to unleash the true V-Twin rumble, remap if needed, mission accomplished.

What a cool bike.
