Since I'm probably going to be looking for a replacement for my R1, I was kinda thinking about something different.............a Benelli!!!
What do you think?

Your replacing the R1:/:...damage on that thing seemed to be minimal despite the speed of the get off....nothing a few zip ties couldn't fix

I say go for it Clyde-O....looks cool and looks to be a LITTLE bit more ergonomically friendly

I like the Moto Morini better!

FWIW, check out the Ducati website.

www.ducati.com

The pics of the new 696 are a good indication of the changes we'll probably see late in '08 on the bigger mosters.
Then again, the new 696 sure looks sexy, maybe I can finally convince you to try something smaller!

I don't know about smaller, but I'm keeping an open mind. This is a 1130cc triple, 148 hp/85 torque........and it's different.

That would be cool as , have the custom chopper, the Zx10 and the duc.

No choppers, and the Duc is FOR SALE, so I'm down to only one bike

It does look like the riding position would be difficult for a short person such as myself but you are long and lanky... perfect for you.

I think it looks a lot like your SV........just bigger, heavier, and with a little more power.
