Try a 1098 Brutale 4 cylinder.....very different from the 800.
Sounds like you liked the Ducati. Go for it. Yours is the only opinion that matters.
I hear ya on that one. I want to make sure I give the Rivale a fair shake, though. I do prefer it over the 'Tard for other reasons. Hopefully the shop will let me ride the Rivale they have so I can make a quick decision.
