Default All it takes

Sometime all it takes is to revsit something to appreciate it.A little tweeking can't hurt. Shear genius, the fat chick sidekick comment.I plan on using it in another venue.A midsize street bike is on my list of five. Aprilla has a nice offering there.

600 bucks for 10ft.lbs more? Hell yeah! 76 hp with a 2 valve motor vs Aprilla's 73 hp and the complexity of four valves?
Buying the Ducati 796 is a no-brainer.

Exclamation Ducati vs Aprilla

Only 600 bucks for 10 ft.lbs more torque? Hell yeah! 76 hp with a 2 valve motor vs Aprilla's 73 hp and the complexity of four valves? How resell value and dealer support?

Surprising the old school air cooled Duc has more power than the Shiver. Duc seems to find a way to meet sound and emissions regs, yet still produce good power. My guess it the Shiver has more in it with a Power Commander and some exhaust therapy.

Yeah, that engine must be in a mild state of tune to not match the air-cooled two-valve Duc.

Yeah, but one desmo valve equals, like, four normal valves for complexity.

Call me an old fart, but since when does a 750 qualify as a "middleweight"?

That was usually left for the 350cc bikes...

Feh. Dang whippersnapers....
