Japanese Vs European

Which do you favor?

I'll go first - Try as I might - I cannot appreciate the Ducati clutch...

Sorry... but it just sounds like it's on the verge of shattering to me...

Japanese +1...

Performance wise, they're about on par with each other (Asian vs. European)...




however, it's expensive as to fix broken on Euro bikes.


Japan FTW!

I used to want a Ducati soooo bad. I have never ridden one but what has steered me away is the reliability issues and expensive upkeep. Valve adjustments are needed every 6000 miles for one thing. They look so beautiful but they are not really that fast...compared to a japanese bike. Ducati 996 vs. Suzuki TL1000r (both have 996cc v-twin engines) the TL will absolutely destroy the ducati.

The Ducati's dry clutch sounds awesome to me.

Great debate and will go for eternity - I pick European but to be honost the poll is too vague coz a Brittish Triumph is as different as an Italian Ducati is as different as a Japanese Suzuki! If you catch my drift? But to be fair all bikes are more similar to each other than European bikes and that I do not like, I like the individuality of my Triumph - after 18 months of ownership I STILL have never rolled upon the same model. That exclusiveness is nice, you can't get that with Japs and thankfully Triumph comes at around the same in cost/parts and labor so why not go for it?!
