Just getting some general opinions from those who've ridden one, or not. Took one around California on vacation for a week, was generally very impressed with the looks, performance, and general practicality of the bike. Only real issue was a very grabby, snatchy clutch, making it very difficult to get a smooth, fast take off. Anyway, very seriously considering picking one up this fall or in the spring, ticks all my boxes for a small, good performing sport touring machine. I'm pretty small physically, and this bike fit me really well for long distances. Also, it satisfies my youthful desire to own a Ducati, while also satisfying the fact that i'm not that young anymore, and a typical Ducati supersport might get old for me day in and day out + cost of ownership. Anyway, just musing. Too bad the KTM 990smt is so rare, would love to check it out for comparision sake.
