seal, heard abt a road going v4, any truth to that?

 

just wondering, any of u guys part of that yahoo sg ducati forum thingie?

 

Read in MCN that Ducati is being pressured into building a road going desmosedici. We may see it sometime next year. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

 

And yes I am a member at the Ducati Yahoo Sg forum.

Live to Ride!

Guest prodrive

G'day,

 

Great to see a Duc thread alive here. I'm thinking of getting back into riding again and want a 916sps or 996sps or the best I can afford so to speak. I would like to find out what are the current going rates for anyone of these machines in SG. Also, what are your opinions on a used 916sps in terms reliability due to the nature of it being an older bike. Replies will definitly be appreciated. Thanks.

 

Cheers!

hiya fellas, another wet evening..

 

reminds me man, never leave the duke to soak up rain, you're asking for it. i remember on my then new monster, the water had seeped into the dials and the oil pressure indicator got screwed up, chnged it many times but the problem remained.

 

hiya prodrive, yea, lets try to create some kind of corner for duke riders, come in and place thoughts/views.

 

seen a brand new 996 sps at minerva. still there i believe.

not sure abt 916 sps.

 

anywya guys , how have yer dukes been treating ya? pleasure or pain? ;)

Hi fellow duke owners,

 

Ducati ST rider here. For me, my duke is both pleasure and pain. However, pleasure would always envelope the pain everytime the unique Desmo V-twin power and noise of the duke punch me out of a corner. Just love riding my duke.

 

Have tried an R1 and blackbird before. They are fast but the inline feeling is just so different from a twin.

is $14k for an FP plate 916 worth the money?

 

it seems to be in mint condition, except for some leaking on the left fork.

 

i had wanted to get it earlier , but frens had been dissuading me, saying i'd need to spend 8k on parks every year. so i'd given up and thought of getting either a blackbird or an f4i, but hearing those dukes that day, my heart hath shakened!!!

 

14k for a 916 is bullshit money to pay man..there are much better deals around just got to wait awhile for the better bikes to come out
