    Got rid of my Gixxer for a new 2008 Ducati 1098. There's simply nothing like a Ducati and the 1098 is absolutely incredible.

    There are only three words to describe this machine: Sex On Wheels.

    Great choice. Any reason you did not go with the S model? I am waiting for the 848S to come out later next year.

    Congrats!

    What Gixxer did you have and how does the 1098 compare to it.

    Because an additional 5 grand just for suspension upgrades and different wheels isn't worth it. For an extra 5 grand it better have engine upgrades, and it doesn't. I'd rather than a standard 1098 and then put the 5 grand into a Termi exhaust and other shit, not an Ohlins damper and wheels.

    I guess to each their own I guess. Ohlins suspension made a huge difference on my Ducati going from the OEM Showa stuff. I would rather have a better handling bike than adding 10hp from that termi exhaust. But congrats none the less. Its a great purchase.
