The Ducati Diffrence

What is the diffrence between the S and the R in the Ducati modles other than $7 - 8k ?
It looks like the same bike other than the Íhlins race suspension?
Am I missing something?

The R model has more cowbell. More engine, full on ohlins setup, some model years have CF bodywork, etc.

The S models are also monoposto, have the number plates, dry clutch, etc, though.

Oh, I think the R's also have a little plate that tells you what bike # you have.

For the current model year you can go to ducati.com and use the compare feature for more details.

Lynwood
Ducati 749S. Red, of course.

I love it.

It's a 2003. I wouldn't have it if I hadn't found a once in a lifetime deal on it though.

Hey,
On the subject of Ducati.
What bike would you prefer... the 999 or the 749R?

uh, 999R. Shouldn't even be a debate. 140 rwhp on a v-twin that's the same weight as the new inline 4s...
