Ducati 999

Went down and looked at one yesterday........'05 in Yellow. it's a nice bike.......and felt real comfortable compared to my RC. Slender, light and did I say it looked sweet, should I sell the two I have and buy it and just have the Duc? Opinions?

I'd love to have one. I don't think I'd sell two to get one though. :dontknow:

Well I don't want payments............and I don't do track days, so it's kinda hard justifying 2 bikes when I'm the only one that rides at my house. And I'm ALWAYS solo so I don't really need to worry about passanger comfort. But at the same time.......I think I've got 2 great bikes already? But spending another $15K and having 3 bikes is really over doing it......right?

It's a tough choice for sure. 15k is a lot of money for a bike, and i'm guessing that is the lower-end 999 without all the trick unobtanium, and other goodies. The poser in me wouldn't let me buy that one. :laughing6

Yeah, 15k is the starter 999.........but for 7k more your getting Ohlins etc..etc. but only 3-5 HP. My biggest concern was I tend to ride alot (IMHO) and with valve adjustments every 6500 miles, I'd spend $700-$1000 on maintenance EVERY year, (valves, tires, oil changes).

Well, the Duc looks better standing still then 3 Suzukis at WOT!!!! And it's just as comfortable IMHO as the Gixxer. And when you look around at used ones..........seems like even 2-3 yrs old they hold their value.

Clyde,
FWIW, the 999 is an excellent motorcycle!
I'll be at the usual spot at 9:00 if you want to hook up.

If you're rollin in dough you don't mind spending on upkeep the duc is your bike. If you actually want to ride it more than its in the shop stick with the RC

Actually the majority of my Ducati customers usually put more miles on their bikes than most of my customers with Japanese bikes.
Ducati has come a long way in the last 10 years.

After having to part out an 05 749 with 12 miles on it becuse the tow yard lost the keys, I kind of got burned on Eurotrash. Gotta love coded keys where even the MFG can't get around their own locks. A GSXR 750 will smoke a duc on any day at any track anyway. Why spend the extra cash?
