Now that looks like a motorcycle, not a mass produced appliance. Air-cooled with no ugly radiator or plumbing to obstruct the classical lines.You can actualy see the chassis and engine. Hopefully it will have the same musical exhaust bark as the one Paul Smart rode.

Oh my, I've got goose bumps and that's not easy to do at my age. Well done on the review. I've been waiting for someone to write a report on these sport classics. I saw both the PS1000 and the S1000 in our local dealership and they are absolutely stunning. Ducati has done a great job of replicating the past while giving it modern mechanics. It is like no other bike on the road. I was going to buy a Thruxton but the Thruxton is like sitting on a kids toy bike compared to the Ducati.
Just brought home my own spanking new Sport 1000 in yellow! It has all of 1 mile on it and ready to roll. SSSSSwwweeeet is all I can say right now. It's raining like a mother in the pacific northwest so I haven't even ridden it yet. I've just been drooling all over it. The one thing it certainly needs right off the bat is some different pipes. The stock pipes look good but mask the hidden potential in that engine. We'll see how she rides, but it certainly seems to be perfection on two wheels.
