he's right it's a 1000cc in a sheep's (600cc) clothing. not to menshion all parts are readily avalible. also you have several shops to chose from when doing service work.

mean while the 848 is just to much work in my opinion. them parts are coming over here on a boat if you need anything major. plus not to many service shops that "i would trust" to work on one of the fine piece's of machinery.

if money is no option go with the 848 but smart money wise & power wise the cbr1000rr is my vote.

im not ragging or dissing on the duc, infact i wish i could afford to have both bikes sitting in my garage right now but thats just my $.02

CBR or Ducati 848. I would get a an RSV4 over the Bemer but in that situation purchase price would play a factor. It would have to be a bike that I could trade straight up for. Those are too expensive. The looks and exoticness (is that a word?) aren't really a factor because Ducatis, although sexy as , aren't that exotic to me considering I've never even seen another Aprilia Tuono on the road...ever. And I see Ducatis as much as I see some of the Kawasakis.

If I had the option I would have tried for a 1098 or 1198. It was hard going from an 06 gsxr 1000 (too much power, but similar to a 1000rr) to an 848 (just enough power) Its a pretty big diff. I was looking for a 750/600 for more track time though. So I kinda got the best of both. Trq of a liter bike with hp like a 750

08 CBR1kRR only because they still have awesome deals out there - $8500-$9k OTD I was ready to buy one but retracted because I am not sure it's a wise idea to jump from a 650r to a 1k as a n00b. They feel great to sit on and are very light for what it is. I hardly ever see an 08+ CBR1KRR on the streets.

Just watch out for oil burn lol. It seems to be limited to a few bikes/owners but when it happens, it sucks.

Outside of your choices, have you considered an RSV4 or R? 09+ ZX6R? All seem like a real stellar bike.

It's the whole thing. CBR is an instrument. A great instrument or tool. Lacks in soul, although it freaking rips.

Ducs are much different. On a different level. If you aren't racing, you will enjoy the Duc more and odds are you will be faster in the twisties on the street.

Since I got my Duc alot of my views have changed. I have had faster bikes but its not speed I was ever concerend about. The Duc rides and looks like a peice of art even when its just sitting still.

i would strongly disagree..... at the track or back road twisties, the cbr1000rr is a much faster bike period, even the 1198 cant compete with the I4s. The only duc that can really compete with the japanese liter bikes is the 1098R!

I was kind of looking for thoughtful responses about the way the bikes ride, throttle response, braking, initial turn-in and stability, etc., etc.

It's sort of a Duc. Hil Coutry Ride, I'll take the Bim, let's see what happens.

Come play with Staton.

I believe you need to fix your signature. "Haters are not only those who complain about everything but also those who can afford a Ducati" I guess I will get the Honda because I don't want to be a hater. LOL. Dumbass.

This was meant in fun, not a bad way. Going towards the questions about handling etc. When I had my 900SS/SP (either of them). The Duc was always a fun bike to ride. The sound, the feel, etc. On a track, it would have been killed. On the street (the Hill Country), it was always fun and fast enough to stay with the the lead group, or lead.

And I always had a smile on my face.

There is no need to get defensive, my comment was my opinion, you get what you want, my opinion was based on: "the Honda more reliable bike and maintenance will be more affordable". It is really too hard to compare both bikes if you have not own both. I have taken all bikes makes and models out for a ride, and can tell you now days all the new bikes are awesome, so whatever bike you choose will be the right one, just because is your bike period. Sorry if I offended you or your post, but you as for people opinion, I was not attacking you (Dumbass right back at you)

PD thanks I corrected my signature!

I just got rid of my 08 600RR and picked up an 08 848 this week. The 600 seemed like it had more usuable power but man the Duc is music to my ears, hearing the 2 cylinders drum coming out of a corner. By far the Duc handles much better better than the CBR, almost like it was on rails. Took me a month or so to get used to the Honda took me a few hours on the Duc and I felt like I was ready for anything. Havent rode the 1000RR but im positive its a much more capable bike but i would get the Duc.
