Default Who doesn't love Italians... {Motorcycles}

I've added a few more Italians to the shop in the last few weeks.

2008 Ducati 1098
2009 Ducati 1198
2013 Ducati 848 Evo
2016 Aprilia RSV4 RR

I've always been a Duc fan. The 1198 with full Termignoni exhaust, tune, etc is a monster. Almost too much of a monster. Raw power, no traction control, no abs... just power. Lots of it.

I didn't think I could find a sound better than the Duc... until I heard the Aprilia V4. Holy balls. Because who doesn't want 14,000 rpm and 200+ hp on a 400lb bike.

I love my "job".

At first I thought you were referencing Italian folks. My first wife was Italian, I did love her at first, but phew, later on.....not so much.

Nice bikes.

I'm Italian... Try using the "N" word that was the talk of the streets from 60 years ago and see what the response to you would be.

Huge Ducati fan. The 916 is widely considered to be one of the nicest looking, if not THE nicest looking sport bike ever made.

My Brother in Law owned this yellow 998 for a few years.

I gave serious consideration to a XDiavel last summer.

How about the Superleggera V4? 224 HP, 370 LBS wet. MSRP; $100k.

Love the sound, style, performance, etc...

But, can you JUST cruise on one? Or are they all about performance riding.

"Normal"? You can't use that word to describe a wop.

The Diavel is a cruiser with some excellent performance abilities. The Monster falls into the muscle bike category. Think the VMax.

I absolutely love that era Ducati. My first was a 748S.

I'm working like hell to get a 996 Bostrom... because why not.

Almost bought a Multistrada but every time I got close my wallet told me to “buy the Yamaha, it’s half the price”.

That's why there's a Road King and a big Ultra Limited in the background.

The 748 was... well... awful. Cool as hell. Awful comfort. The 848/1098/1198 are pretty typical sportbikes. The Aprilia is actually surprisingly comfortable when it's not peeling off your face.

I would kill myself on one of those.

I have several old 1970ish Honda's - SL 350, SL125, CD175, Z50, etc...

you know why Italians don't get excited when someone uses "wop" or "guinea" ?

Because in general, we just don't give a sh*t, and you just go "the list".

But, that being said, if you ever said it to my face with antagonistic intent, you would be looking for your teeth on the ground, no questions asked.
