I would like to hear from past and present owners of Ducati's, mainly concerning the 748 series. If I buy a Ducati, it would be a 748. Now, has anyone here put a lot of kms on one of these Ducati's? Can anyone tell me if it would be at all reasonable cost wise to run and maintain one? I am not looking for opinions of how Japanese bikes will smoke it, they will, I know. Pure performance is not the reason I would buy a Ducati. I just would like to hear from people who have owned and operated Ducati's, especially the 748 and its litre cohort. Opinions of the bikes outside maintaining it would be appreciated as well. Thanks, Angus.
