Yes I agree. While I still love Ducati superbikes, in all reality there hasn't been anything after 2009 that I felt I just had to have. Gone are normal headlights, trellis frames and dry clutches. All the things that made me want Ducati bikes to begin with.

While I don't mind the new Monsters, they just don't appeal to me. I think it might be a bit short sighted to bash the 821 and 1200, I kind of feel you are just banging around at the fact that they are liquid cooled. There have been liquid cooled M's for a very long time and I think it is actually very cool of Ducati to offer air cooled and water cooled versions of the same bike. Show me another manufacturer that ever did this.

I just don't feel any heritage, or lineage, when I look at the new bikes.
