Question on future bike.

Okay I plan on upgrading to a 1k sometime next year. I have three choices I have narrowed down to. R1, ZX10R, and Ducati 848( I know it's not 1k but have always loved the look). So what do y'all recommend and why? Thanks

I prefer the r1 personally 2009-2014 love the sound of that motor, if you like the ducati why not the 1098? I feel like if you want a 1000 and you get the 848 you will wish you got the bigger one. I can't say how they ride I've never had one, maintenance on the new ducati's seem to be pricy so that may be an issue for you also I don't know.

I just have always liked the look of the 848. Maintenance isn't a big issue at all.

So I've owned a 2010 R1, two 1098s, and a 1098 Streetfighter. And I have a decent amount of experience on a 2007 R1 and a 2008 ZX10R.

What I'll say is, you MUST ride a 1098/1198/848 before you commit to buying one. It's a totally different animal. It takes a good amount of setup and some replacement parts before it turns in and handles like the japanese bikes (more relaxed steering angle is partly to blame). It's very stable mid-corner, but it takes much more deliberate action to turn in or change direction. It'll feel much different if you're used to japanese bikes.

That said, nothing can beat the awesome motor, brakes, and character of the 1098.
