Should I get a 08 cbr1000 or 08 ducati 848

So in my previous thread I mentioned that my bike may be totaled due to some contractor that splattered solvent all over it. Been looking into getting a pure sport bike to replace my Aprilia Tuono. I think I either want an 08 cbr 1000 or a Ducati 848. Let's get some thoughtful opinions in here but leave out the initial purchase price as a factor. Oh and leave out the looks of the Ducati. I know it looks good but so did my ex-girlfriends and a lot of good that did me.

The CBR is rock solid in turns. The only negative is that the stock version is too quiet. All you hear is wind noise when you're cruising. Doesn't howl like the 600.
Same seat height as the 600. Only about 1.5 inches longer in the wheel base and 29 lbs heavier

For the money, I believe the S1000RR would be the best choice. Although, BMW still has not won a race with the bike. That could chance in the next year or so. You will also be able to claim that you can remove a table-cloth from a large dining-table -- without losing anything on the table.

The only reason I would shy away from the s1000rr is that is a first generation.
and really first year, so its a chance to run into problems, that don't have solutions.

Good luck on your purchase!

WTF?! I tried fixing a typo in the previous post and this post occurred.

If you're looking for straight up bang for the buck, you can't compare the two.
CBR wins hands down.
It's like comparing a multi function Seiko to a Rolex.
Now, if you just ride for the enjoyment of riding and can appreciate the passion the Italians put into their machines, go for the Duc.
I've owned a cbr1k and now a 848. I can't say anything bad about either one, although the sound and feel of a uncorked italian twin is something that one must experience on the track to appreciate. All depends on what you plan on doing with it. Everyone is different.

Gotta love the 848 styling & they are fun to ride too, but you are leaned a bit forward more than some bikes. I also have a soft spot for bikes.They are all i've ever owned besides the 848. The major diff is gonna be the power. If you want all out power, then get the honda. The duc feels pretty good in its powerband but the honda is prob a good deal faster in a straight line.


I guess im in after all the beamer nut swangers..

2 very different bikes.

I <3 the 848 but also the 1000rr.

Either way you can't go wrong.

(wasn't that helpful?)
