    Nope. Hot bike, but too little power for me if it's like the SV650. I am too used to the power of a liter bike and commute too often to own one.
    If I had two bikes, then maybe. More likely I'd own a Connie and a motard though.

    It is a little underpowered but I've always found it easier to ride a slow bike fast than to ride a fast bike slow. This thing loves the twisties.

    Yes, that is very true. Smaller bikes are more forgiving, build more confidence, and are harder to get in a iffy situation. Hence why I'd want a Motard.

    My buddy has one and it's fucking awesome. I think it's an 88 but it looks brand new. Idiots are always stopping him and asking about his "Ducati"

    They aren't really my style as I'm more about performance > *, but I do admire them.

    This is my second 89'. I get the ducati questions all the time. It doesn't help that it has ducati parts on it though. lol

    Funny, I rode a Ducati before and was asked if it was a Honda/Harley. I just laughed at them and rode off.

    It was my first bike. It was a perfect first bike, not too powerful, and not too slow. Looks awesome, not too common, and affordable.

    If only it were comfortable on long rides, and had a larger gas tank. The range on these bikes is like 100 miles

    Is that an autometer gauge?? I know why it's there, but there are other options when you lose the mechanical speedo.
