I'm with you on this one Rob. The line-up of 2009 is my favorite.

It went downhill after that because of the departure of Pierre Terblanche from Ducati in 2007-08.

He is behind the astonishing design of the MHe900, the Hypermotard and the SportClassics line. If it wasn't for the 999 and the first Gen Multistrada he would be hailed as a genius like Massimo Tamburini.
