Yup, pretty much only used it on the track. Damn thing was a brute! I've ridden full prepped AMA race bikes that didn't have the explosive power this thing did.

Speaking of diet, I lost 20lbs in 2 weeks and have about 10lbs more to go. Looking to transform in to a 210lb Fire Breathing Father of 3 teenage girls.

Three teen girls, now I understand, especially in todays world. But just in case, try some more oatmeal or maybe a big bowl of that green chili.

And just like the Hyper, the 990 is not a motard.

I thought it was pretty apparent I wasn't brand bashing. Just model bashing for ridiculously naming something. You getting butthurt and seeing it for something it wasn't's on you.

108 HP

Never mind the Z1000 at 130 HP or the FZ1 at 150.

ABS? Traction Control? Throttle Mapping?

Hardly a better value than the new Hyper, at least on paper.

You wanted dependability and maintainability, all that other stuff is just more to break. You were the one that doesn't want to spend time wrenching. FZ1's go 26K miles between valve checks!

I'd say a 18K mile valve check lends itself to some serious miles. The other items are proven technology and there's little reason to believe that failures are imminent. $12K is still a lot of money for a motorcycle but this bike has a lot to offer for the money spent. I suspect we'll see this bike show up in a wide variety of ride reports. Still waiting for an MPG spec to be posted on the web. Should hit the states around April.

The FZ1 is a great bike and highly praised but it still lacks the newest technology. Besides that, Bum shoulders and wrists prevent me from riding sportbikes.

The FZ1's bout do for a makeover. Wouldn't be surprised to see it get some of the goodies like traction control off the R1, and of course all street bikes will be getting ABS soon as our nanny state gubmint will be forcing that issue. As for throttle mapping, my 690 has it, I set it to the power mode when I first got it and I've never touched it since.

As for the ergos, come on it's not a sport bike by any stretch, its a sporty naked bike like the Hyper, Z1K, CB1K, SuperDuke, etc, etc.

That all being said, I never said the Hyper sucks, just that Ducati sucks for calling something it's not.

Just lock her in the closet until she's 25.
