1000R vs 1098S vs tornado tre 1130 vs RSV Mille R Factory in Danish

My dad brought me this magazine back from Copenhagen. I thought I'd share since it shows the MV crushing everyone at the track and leading in power numbers. The Ducati was the only bike even close on the track. Although even with the MV's power and speed, it seemed the riders on the last page preferred the Duc, and even the Aprilia beat the MV in the "subjective rankings"

Maybe they genuinely prefer those bikes (they are great bikes) or maybe the advertising factor is coming into play here.

I don't know about over there but here both Aprilia and Ducati eclipse MV in the amount of advertising they do in the local mags...

Either way good to see the MV doing so well with the numbers.

Wall Street is the only place that people ride to in a Rolls Royce to get advice from those who take the subway.

That's funny to me. It's like "This is the fastest bike around the track. It looks the best. It has the highest horsepower and torque. It rides like something out of this world, but I prefer the other bike." wtf???

The mags are never consistent. He in the state when the ZX-10 came out it won everything just because of the engine. That is all they talked about is the power. Sometimes they will pick the bike with the best track times. Next time it the one which is the best on the street. I think it all comes down to which company is giving them the most ad money. I could be wrong on this, what it comes down to me on is which bike fits my style of riding and ego at the time.

Look at the Ducati torque at 3500 and 7900 rpm's!!!! Wow!!

I'm sure they liked that!! With that kind of torque advantage, you wouldn't even notice the 12 horsepower deficit!

It is funny that the tests in the finnish Bike magazine is won by Suzuki or Yamaha or .......about the Duc they always said:good brakes fun in the track but......it is always the last in the test.In my opinion they may have some influence by somewhere in their comments .
Very subjective when you look the cold facts.

I personally think that the Duc 1098S is prob easier to ride looking at the torque curve. And I think I like the look of the Ducati better than the Agusta. The Agusta is timeless yes but the new Ducati is just incredible looking. The front is gorgeous. That has always trurned me off is the front of the Agusta....
