Are U ready to order the new 1098? How much? Which dealership?
Is it available in the Bike Show coming up on Jan/07?

I have a feeling that these bikes will sell at MSRP for the first year. I've got to feel for anyone that tries to sell a used 999 right now.

Depends really. Some people will always like the 999/749 design over the current, and some will like the 996/748 over all of them. The real question is with the 848 coming in 2008, there won't be anymore sub 750cc sbk ducati's from 2007+. aka, no more cheap insurance.

I wonder if the SS swingarm on the 1098 will fit a 999/749...

I kinda doubt that anyone who buys one of these bikes would be concerned with the "cheap" insurance. It isn't cheap when you get theft, collision, etc. that you should with a bike like this.

Some people like Ducati's, but it doesn't mean they are rich.
Likewise, some people like japanese bikes, it doesn't mean their poor either.

It just kinda of sucks that there isn't any 2007 749's and the next class 848's will be in the same catagory as the 1098's.

they already make a single sided for the 999 long time ago.

motowheels.com did it the same year the 999 came out .Im sure the 1098 swingarm would fit simple easy

yeah but for 3500USD, bit pricey.
I'm hoping a scrapped 1098 non-magnesium swingarm will be cheaper.
Hope it'll fit.......

its going to be a few months before a 1098 is avalible here.the ''s'' model is coming [email protected] $25000 plus all the fees .even the base is 20,000. so while the used bikes will take a hit,saying they will be worth sweet f##k all is a bit of dick head response.btw the 1098 frame is changed quite a bit so a swing arm change will need a lot more than simple re &re.engineered fabrication will be required

i have to be a dickhead because i exaggerated an obvious point ?

hows this ?,they wont be worth as much as they would have been had the 1098 not exist

is that better ? does that make it warmer ?

i didnt realize it was such a comparison issue with japanese bikes ,i was comparing ducati models

if you can get 148 hp from a 916 derived ducati (ex,1098 ) i think the duc fans would lean away from trebu's design and go with a more classic duc look .I think it would make 916-998 's worth even more and the 999 may face the fate of the 929 954 after the cbr 1000rr came out .It overshadows a particular short run design .

The dyno chart shows a massive dip in the lower revs but climbs like a monster. I'm guessing this bike will be fun to ride.

...The torque is pretty good for a sportbike.

I think that analysis is bang on.
