After the legendary 916 series was retired, this motorcycle had a difficult task of trying to repeat the success of its predecessor. Unfortunately, as in most cases, it somewhat failed to achieve the same. Don’t get us wrong, we are not saying that it was bad, but it wasn’t sensational. And that was its downfall.
While it had plenty of power, 124 horsepower, to be exact, this bike always lacked the fluidity of some of its rivals. Ducati was never known for manufacturing the most comfortable motorcycles in the world, and much of the same was noticeable with this model as well. That meant that the rush hour traffic was not a pleasant experience if you ever rode one of these monsters.
Still, this bike had a secret. Racing track is the location where it came to life. Ever wanted to know what it felt like to be a MotoGP rider? Get yourself one of these bad boys and you’ll be half way there. Apart from the mad grunt of the engine, you will be absolutely astounded with the superior braking power. At the end of the day, this wasn’t a superbike for the average Joe, but if you knew how to use it properly, it was superb.
Regular car reviews provided their hilarious take on it. Make sure to check it out.
