I dont think it would be big enough of a difference to be a deciding factor. Probably a little more on the maint. and a little less on the ins. for the duc.

There is a great difference between thinking and knowing, even if your thinking is supposedly 100% accurate.

Had several ducati's... Get the 848, and then get smoked by all the 1K bikes
If you already have an R1, getting an 848 would be a step down for you other than paying a lot for the Ducati name and "prestige". Just my opinion....

Just giving my opinion, based on my experience with bikes. Ducati's maint hass supposedly gone down quite a bit, and 848 cc's is less than 1000 cc's.

Disclaimer, this information's accuracy is based on a sliding scale correlating to the amount you paid for it......

bikes are the cheapest to maintain hands down but if you want something that is all around different then get the duck . I road a few and a few Italian and the duck is the funniest bike I've ridden

Why Do You Capitalize Every Word?

On a more serious note:
What will the bike be used for?

Major maintenance interval including valve adjustment on the Duc is every 7500 miles, 15k for belt replacement.
The R1 is almost 3 times longer than that for the major service.

Bang for the buck its hard to beat japanese. The 848 looks great but its a big drop off from an R1. I considered an 848 a couple yrs ago but its 1/4 mile time was slower than my 636. I know 1/4 mile time isnt everything but come on its an 848. Stick with the R1.
