New Ducati 1098 Pics Undisguised

This was on MCN... They had the right new R1 pics so I'll give them a little more credibility on these.

I have to say fugly though... Triumph headlights, fugly back end and I'm not digging the lines. Too much going on??? Not sure... Maybe it will grow on me.

ducati made some beauties in the past, we'll see

i always liked the 851/888, the 916/996 was quite possibly the most beautiful bike ever made and 999 actually grew on me

It looks like the cross between a kawi and the daytona.

I think it looks sweet. The pipes look weird but then again who keeps stock pipes on sportbikes nowadays

I still think the 996/998 is one of the best looking bikes ever.

My 999S is sweeeet in person - but NEVER photos nice...

I'm just not sure about the new Duc. Time will tell. Rumors on specs are flying.

Thanks! The kicker is the guy lives about 4 miles from Laguna and invited me out for the race next year. They have a couple of extra Ducs - so I might have one to ride while I'm there.

Now to get my other house sold and pay down the 2nd on the new one...

Then I'll be shopping for another bike
