Ducati Concept Bike



Ducati is my luscious Italian temptress always whispering the sexiest things in my ear while twisting my nipples.

ok, the twisting nipples was a little more info than I needed...

I had heard rumors of this... It's a 1200, right?

I don't know anything about it but I'd guess it is the same engine as the current 999. No reason for them to start off with a new engine when they're still paying for the R&D in that one.

I'm not convinced it's not just a photoshop chop. The wheels don't strike me as a matched set and the headlights are easy enough to drop in.

Like all Ducs, you need two right? One for the shop and one to ride.

They're just like every other bike man. Just take care of it and you won't have any problems.

From what I've heard, there are only two real downsides to owning a Duc. Your maintenance intervals for the valve adjustments suck. If you drop it and break something, it takes forever to get parts. Reliability is above reproach, it's just like ragdoll said. Take care of it, it will take care of you.

As for the maintanance intervals... My 748 valve adjustments are every 6000 miles. I think that is reasonable eventhough it is a little expensive. If you drop it. Find someone that can weld plastic and replace the broken parts on ebay. After I dropped mine at Jennings Jet was able to locate the left clip on, clutch lever, and foot peg on ebay. I think he paid $25-$30 for everything. I just sent the plastics to a guy who can fill in the big hole in my left fairing and repaint it. A lot cheaper than replacing the fairing and front cowl. Things are expensive, but like anything else there are ways around it.

I have always heard Ducatis are like a mistress. If you can afford to have one you can afford to maintain it.

True Nate, I would just rather prefer a bike that I do not have to maintenance all the time.
