I never was one to have the latest thing or the popular new NIKES or the newest style hair cut..etc.
I like all sportbikes but will only own a Ducati.
To me there all the same (like Harleys) paint them all the same color, remove all the stickers and there all the same cookie cutter bikes.
Ducati is in a class all by there selves ...THAT and a list of other things is what makes me a QUAK HEAD. ***READ BELOW*** [thumbsup]

I just love a company that started of with manufacturing 'radio' & other electrical goods ........ but now ends up manufacturing bikes that feels like a bike & utilising other manufacturer's electric parts .... I'm confused ;D ;D

It was my first, and now second motorcycle. I'm not too good at math, so a smaller bank balance makes life easier.

Ducati has soul.

Any ferrari vs. anything from Japan
Any Lamborghini vs. anything from Japan
Any Porsche vs. anything from anywhere

Suzuki builds the Aerio
Honda builds lawnmowers

Ducati builds performance motorcycles that inspire people.

But I am severely biased

For me it's because it's unique in every respect. It's more about the Monster than the Ducati - it just so happens the Monster is the first of it's genre (another unique feature). Not a cruiser, but not entirely a sportbike - the ride is unique, the engine is unique, the appearance is unique. It's really hard to find anything wrong with a bike that has sportbike maneuverability and cruiser manners/ergonomics.
























Okay, it's because it's RED ;D

I love the looks, the color (Red of course), the sound (I've had Harley guys tell me they love the sound of Ducati's), the name (a total stranger told me today that he loves Ducati's. He said they are the Ferrari of motorcycles).
In fact our Magnetti Marelli electronics are used in virtually all Ferrari's.

Because I wake up in the middle of the night and have to go to the garage to see my baby before I can sleep. Also, there's no way more fun to get to class or work!
