Another really cool bike that I can't fit on. Maybe a gym session or two is in order? Not fitting on it is not a problem with this bike, as I hear that V-Twins are dead anyway, so I guess I can't be too upset.

I'm tellin' ya, these middleweight bikes are the shiznitz. The GSXR750, the Trumpet675 and now this. More power than most mortals can handle and none of that weak sister 600 Supersport excuse for torque. Who cares about literbikes? Handcuffs await you on these gems.

Pretty! Though I think the 600's have more power than I'll ever need on the street

Can I get a Duke 424 ?

Nice write up and awesome video. Pretty bike but at that price it would be hard to pass up the GSXR-750 , Daytona, or Buell 1125. That bike list would make for a pretty good shoot-out though. Looking to trade in my R6 on something bigger this year. Right now the Suzuki is at top of the list. Still the Ducati has the looks, especially in red. Daytona isn't bad looking though but I didn't like the ergos. Surprisingly the Suzuki felt better. Buell could be the wild card but it's not really a replica racer but that may be a good thing.. Love the V-Twin sound in the video. Great job guys thanks.

That's a beauty alright, the underseat exhaust looks so right on a Ducati, really neat looking bike. I suppose if I was still a skinny 20 year old I'd be first in line for one. Now I guess I can enjoy them when they fly past me while I'm toolin' around on my Dyna

Maybe if your crappy, overpriced Harley had more than 60hp, you wouldn't have the problem of everyone flying past you!
