I saw one this past Sturday at a show in Hartford CT, right next to a GT1000...and my only thought was "which one do you chose if you can only have one?". The fit and finish, attention to detail, quality of parts, and sheer beauty of the bikes is even more impressive in person. I don't see how you could go wrong owning one of these speciality bikes, and I suspect they will hold their value and eventually appreciate over time, if they do keep them to limited numbers. And if they don't...so what! It's good for the financial health of the company and a pleasure for me to see someone go by on one. Hat's off to Ducati - these are some of the best looking bikes I've ever seen.
