Video shows a little bit of how fun this bike is too.

Funny how people describe it as that girl your parents warned you about...

No doubt this bike is like with a mix of

If you're not a hooligan...this is NOT the bike for you...

(not that I ride like a hooligan) tisk tisk...

Only downside I can see is the obvious one--it's a ducati.

75hp and 400lbs... I guess the play in the suspension and geomentry makes it a wheelie monster, but I question if it's a performamce monster.

I gotta say, I'm excited to see this bike though. $14K is too expensive for me, but I like the styling and it probably rides fun in a nonstandard way. I want to see some video of someone riding it in the twisties.

It's a "fun" bike...that simple...not something really made for racing although add the full exhaust + cams and it will make 100hp to the wheel.

I bought the standard model which alone has better components than most bikes and added the full exhaust which bumped the power to the rear wheel from 75 up to 80 and torque is greatly increased as well.

The handling is incredible, it's actually easier to back this bike in than my DRZ which surprised me. Although, honestly I don't really back it in much since I do not want to drop this bike where the DRZ is just plain tough.

It's not a bike for everyone...which is one more reason I bought it. And, I can tell you that you won't appreciate this bike until you ride it. My purpose was for a fun hooligan bike...and it's perfect for that
