I'd much sooner go with the R6 unless you have a disposable income. The 848 is a way cool bike, but in the long run the R6 is going to be more versatile and user friendly as well as costing less to maintain/ upgrade/ repair.

Don't get me wrong, if I had the money, I'd buy a 848 in a heartbeat- beautiful sexy bikes! But based on some of my friends that have them, I'd get an R6.

I have heard stories about owning a Duc but I just cant get over the sexiness of the Italian Stallion.
I do agree with the versatility of the bikes and costing less to maintain/repair.

Appreciate your feedback!

Nope, he likes women.

Yamawhore, PM Scorpio on the board. He has an 848 he might be able to give you input on the bike.
I have an R6 track hoe and love it. The good thing with modern machines is that you can't go wrong.
