    848/1098/1198

    Best bikes ever.

    Slightly biased - owned my 848 since 2012 - put about 10,000 kms. Never had a single problem but for a blown park light bulb.

    That miniature halogen bulb cost a near fortune to buy but. Was almost more economically viable to kit out LEDs.

    So look after them and enjoy a near perfect experience. Crash em / fuck em and they will certainly destroy your wallet.

    My bias is the trellis framed bikes with under tail mufflers and the 1198 is the pinnacle of that development. Not sure about the point of the 748/9/848. About the same weight and performance if you only use 1/3 of the equivalent bigger bike's throttle.

    My ducati experience is limited and until 2008 when I got the 1098R I wouldn't touch one with a stick. I've only done 40,000 on mine in 10 years and about 8,000 on a 93 900 Supersport, now sold.

    (During the same period 30,000 on a harley 50,000 on the Griso, 40,000 on the sport 1100 and about 20,000 on the museum pieces and others... Works out at about 20,000 per annum.)

    If you are not too worried about outright power, a '90's 900 Supersport is a great pick over the water cooled bikes. Good handling and power for an air cooled 2 valve. Add some keihin 40mm flat slides and they really go.

    It is also a simple bike compared to water cooled ducatis and good to learn how to work on them.

    Most around are pretty good condition. The only problem I had was cheesalloy head studs caused an oil weep from the rear cylinder. The leak is easy to spot if not sorted. Replace them all if it happens.

    The new owner's had the 900 for a couple of years now problem free. Like the 1198 though, too much light throttle low revs will choke the thing so get a moped if you are not going to open it up once in a while (or more).

    From all owners accounts, the 1098 + 1198 don't seem particularly suitable to the type of riding I do. 90% of my riding is suburban/commuting, I don't get into the country or hills as often as I'd like so I'm starting to think the big ducatis wont be much good for what I do. The last ride I saw you on (2015 ?) is similar to what I do most weeks
    Rest in Peace

    Air cooled 2 valve Monster or Hypermotard is where you need to be...

    Simple, cheaper to maintain, and will be more suited to commuting and the occasional country work, though without outrageous top speeds...

    Yeah well that's a good attitude and the Rich suggestion is the go. I don't know enough about them to recommend but I always liked the idea of the 1100 Hypermotard and no fairings to smash. (like I did again. and again. and...)

    You are talking like an old man though. Surprising but probably a good thing.

    Which one is the cheapest to repair from crash damage?
    One owner. Only driven gently on Sundays. Sold to best offer. First to see will buy. Reward offered for safe return. Coming soon to a cinema near you. Available for a limited time only.

    My waterbed broke this morning. Oh, I don't have a waterbed. Bugger.

    Best I can do to describe the issue is this.
    Normally it goes BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR, shift, BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    But now it's a bit more like this
