Yeah, I rode the demo today. WOW.
To say I loved it is an understatment. It's way better IMO than the 1199. It's more like a super middle weight than a real litre bike, even if it is just about 1000cc.
Still too fucking loud, and still too fucking hot on the left leg, but that is all that I don't like. I was wearing ear plugs and my ears were still ringing. It's quiet when you're on the gas. It's just when you roll off....BRAAAAAAAAAAAA BRAAAAAAAAA in the head, fml.
The thing handles really nice, big wide bars on it, about 140hp or so on the wheel I'd guess, corners so nice, smooth bike. Really comfortable cockpit for a sport bike.
I still love my 675 though, but I think next summer when a used one is coming around, I might buy my first Ducati.
I hope I see one at the Ridge in June, gonna follow it around like a lost puppy.
