Swiss Army knife of bikes, it does everything. Feels like a high bar race bike when pushed and can tour all day at any speed with no aches at the end. I love it. The badge is a feel good factor to boot. Never let me down yet, totally reliable and the only bike i need. My last MV F4 was great but gave me aches after just an hour in the seat. Give me the duke all day long ... Though it is a bit pricey

Well obviously, ownership comes at a cost, with the initial outlay and the much publicized regular cam belt services. Although, the intervals between has now been lengthened. Also, there is the mileage range from a full tank of fuel. Most owners admit to only getting 100 miles before the fuel light comes on, but this is due more to the 15.5 litre tank rather than poor mpg. Being an owner, you just get used to stopping for fuel at the next garage when your trip mileage goes over 85 miles. Finally, the riding position does put your weight forward on to your wrists, which can take a little getting used to.

But, in my opinion, the positives of ownership of the 1198 far outweigh the negatives. First of all there is the styling. With the single side swing arm, the under seat exhausts, trellis frame and twin headlights, the bike looks like an updated 916. When I first got mine, I was happy just to sit and look at it, it really is just gorgeous.

Then when it is out on the open road, it just makes you smile. The awesome V twin engine, the sound from the exhausts, the power delivery, the change of direction, everything about it just makes you want to ride from dusk til dawn.

In summary, I wouldn't change my 1198 for any other bike available. I may be biased, but to me, no one makes a motorbike like Ducati. With the 1198 (and it's predecessor the 1098), Ducati made a sportsbike with styling cues from iconic previous models married with modern day bike performance and handling. A true Italian thoroughbred. It doesn't get any better than that.
