Buy what turns your crank and makes your heart beat.I'm interested in n purchasing my first ducati and I'm really looking at the 959 or the 1299 can't decide LOL
You my friend made an excellent point. I still haven't decided but your comment has made my decision a little clearer. I don't know if I'll be able to handle all the power the 1299 has for everyday commute so I guess that the 959 would be a more sensible option. Decisions, decisions lol.Buy what turns your crank and makes your heart beat.
For me, I wanted a street bike and the 959 is it. I like shifting gears. 160ish HP is more than enough for me to use. Had I wanted a track beast, combined with the expertise to take advantage of all that power on the track (which I don't have), then it would be perhaps different.
I don't do tracks though I would want to I mainly just ride around for pleasure. I have been riding for 7 years mainly Japanese bikes but this time I want to treat myself to something different. I love sport bikes and when I first saw the panigale I said to myself someday I'll have to own one lol. To me these bikes are like the Ferraris of motor bikes. Not the fastest but sure are beautiful.
