New tranche of 2008 bikes

Discussion in 'Cars, Bikes 'n AFVs' started by comedy dave, Sep 19, 2007.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just been leafing through latest edition of MCN and the various offerings of 2008 models.

    The new 'blade; snubbed nosed and looks hideous.
    The Gixer 600; looks all cosmetical
    ZX10; how about that new exhaust styling?!

    Gone are the underseat pipes, now it's stubby Moto GP look-a-likeys.

    Race on sunday, sell on monday.

    Looking forward to the homologation 1098/1198R from Bologna....
  3. Just clapped eyes on the Ducati Desmosedici RR.
    Lovely looking bike. but £40,000 and 200bhp....

    Clearly an executive toy. Insurance quotation? I would hate to think.

    For british roads?
  4. comes complete with a re-wire kit, a large tool kit and 3 yrs free AA!!!
  5. mmmm - Italian bike porn....

    Nice 1098s - you can keep the 999r though, and you may have to when you look at its depreciation.. :cry:
  7. Yep your right on the depreciation front, but thats always been the case with the R or older SPS models.
    after riding them both i guess its a question of preference as they are both well matched in terms of power, its just the bikes have different characteristics, the 1098 having a good lowdown punch due to the extra cc´s and the R having a power band like kick at 7000 that is like nothing ive ridden ( except my old RD20LC ) ;)

    Triples are where it's at. IMHO

    The best bike Ducati ever [nearly] made - and the only thing Terblanche ever got right.....

    Twins are the way ahead... more ways than one

    While I am a twin devotee for both road and track, I would have to disagree with that statement.
    For efficiency, economy and future emissions a V4 will come out top in terms of power/wieght/size/flexibility.

    Wont stop me collecting Ducati's though :wink:
