I'm just saying, these bikes cost as much as they do because of what they do and what went into designing and building them. Believe it or not, ducati actually lost money on every one of these they sold.
You can't compare it to some blinged out custom to this.
With a good rider, this thing would embarrass anything and everything on two wheels. On a road track of course.
its all good.
however you cant tell me that who ever buys a desmo isnt doing it partially out of the head turn factor. im not saying they are not amazing bikes at all. they are awesome. i actually drooled over those desmos at eximport for like 30 minutes. but a modern 600 is more than enough on the streets anyway.

and take a closer look at that "blinged out custom". full ohlins suspension, superchared, intercooled, vtwin kicking around 200 hp on a ti frame weighing in around 440 lbs. im not under the illusion that it is a race bike or anything. but i bet it performs a little better than one of those grotesque, stretched, pieces of chromed out that they build on the discovery channel.
