I sure will three years even.

I have a 620 and now hooked. Although the R6 pulls harder, corners better, and basically outperforms in all aspects of the S4 that I have ridden, its just not the Ducati.

FWIW, from the same magazine, so the numbers are as comparable as anything......

'01 S4 - 459 lbs. wet
98.9 HP @ 8750 rpm
63.5 ft-lb @ 7000 rpm
11.20 @ 121.0 quarter mile

'03 R6 - 415 lbs. wet
105.4 HP @ 12750 rpm
44.7 ft-lb @ 11,750 rpm
11.01 @ 125.3 quarter mile

Scott's stepped on his S4 pretty hard, so I'm sure the HP is same or better than the R6, and the weight is very close with 40 lbs. trimmed off. It's that 50% more torque (50% more displacement, that's why) that's gonna blow the R6 away.

I haven't touched my motor, and I still wouldn't trade my bike for an R6 with $4k in the tank bag. I just don't want an R6.

This is from his second post, so don't beat on him too hard:

I figured we could cut him a little slack for knowingly (or not?) walking into an ambush. ;)

Guess I was just feeling generous last night.............
