:agreed: Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. As I keep staring at the pic's I see the great attention to detail mechanically. It's stunning! :drool: They definately put in some time engineering the bike. But the bike doesn't have a real look for me. I sit here in my home office looking at my 6 foot picture of a 916 that I've had forever and it still evoke's emotion to me that new bike just doesn't (even though that new RR would kill the 916 at the track or the street). True it's got a "moto gp" look to it but it doesn't have any defining line's or sex appeal like the old ducatti's were known for. They have alway's been tempermental or pricey to maintain but the exotic line's and rarity alway's made them stand out from other bike's. Sometime's style overcame function but that was the price you paid to own one. Maybe I'm stuck in the past as far as bike design or styling but with such an awesome platform, they could have put more sex appeal into the bike. To me it's just too round and ugly. :barfkiss:

i did some more research and it comes with a 3 years warranty and 3 years maintenance service. the forks alone are around $10k and the entire fairing is carbon fiber.

$65K is cheap compared to the actual cost to develop and make the motogp bike.

Terblanche happened, who designed the horrid looking 749 and 999 bikes. Ducati is still recovering from his hellish ways. The 'dici is much closer to the legendary 916 styling, but still has a ways to go.

Fortunately, in the mechanical and soul departments, they're as badass as they ever were.

Thank you, that is what I was getting at. :bigthumb: But to ride that bike I'm sure would be pure heaven. :wackit:

yes but i think its more of the rarity and exclusiveness of actually owning one of these rather than making a bike that is up to par in performance.
