The 1098 should be a good one but Ducati's never been known for their quality control. This is a first year bike with loads of changes, a bit scary in itself from any manufacturer, much less Ducati. You've got to wonder how many corners they've had to cut to offer all those upgrades at such a low price...

Tomorrow I'm trading in my F4 1000R and ordering the 1098 S. So I would say: get the Ducati.

Warranty issues I had:

-new rear wheel.
-New front fork. The black coating vanished from the lower fork tubes.
-new cam chain tensioner. (original broke down)
-new chain guard. (original flew off)
-lower radiator fan melted away.


+If you ride it HARD: high fuel consumption.

Well, it's not like you can just walk into Pro Italia today and ride out on a 1098. So, I say wait. You don't have enough information to really make a good decision on what works for you. You're going to base a $18K+ purchase on some magazines? Did I mention you can't ride out on a 1098 today away?

For now, just put a deposit on a 1098. Pro Italia gives demo rides anyway. When a demo model comes in demo 1098 and then demo an MV. If you choose the MV, then call me...I mean get your deposit back on the 1098 and get the MV. Pro Itali will have no problem selling the 1098.

(As a little tidbit of info - if Pro Italia doesn't have a demo 1098, and they know you're serious -the deposit, they may let you take the 1098 you're about to buy for a ride around the block...or two. I demo'ed the MV I was going to buy and not the actual demo model. They don't do that for everyone. Only the serious buyers).

It's easy, 1098's are for schoolgirls...MV's are for beautiful people like us.

Settled???

Hey Peet, maybe you should have bought an 1000S I've had no problems except an electric problem due to the installation of an aftermarket alarm. I also ride my bike hard and love my 1000S.

I would wait a couple of years before buying the Ducati. I used to have a 996S and it was a superb bike, however the earlier 916's had some serious issues.

Well, did the 2003 999s have any problems? This is the "new" Ducati. Whatever that means.
