jap is about the only way you'll get a 600cc. Ducati is about equal to the jap bikes, just they come with a lot nicer stuff from the factory for race readiness.

Ducs are very nice bikes. A little more money than jap bikes but they are worth every penny.

You could get a Triumph 675 if you like middleweight sportbikes that aren't from Japan.

I agree! The 675 is one of my personal favorites!!!! It has a very similiar look to the ducati 1098. If you are not a seasoned racer i doubt you would be able to tell a difference in components. Aside from the v twin roar to the nice high tune of a 3 cyclinder.

Expensive. Thus not everyone can afford one or have experience owning one.

Even if you pony up and make the purchase they have expensive maintenance requirements which can really add up and I think that limits how many miles the actual owners do put on them.

I have a friend who has owned 3 Ducatis (2- 900ss and 1- 750SS) and he really likes them. He raced one and currently has one for the street. He also rode it from where he bought it in North Carolina home to SW Arkansas!

Like a fine wine they are kind of an aquired taste.

I agree... unless you can learn to do the services yourself, it can get pretty pricey.

Because they have desmodromic valves, they require valve adjustments much more regularly than conventionally valved bikes...

You answered your own question...

Ducati is the "porche" of motorcycles
So, compare your ducati vs. Suzuki/Kawi/Yam/Honda the same way you compare Mustangs/Civics/etc to Porsche's.

BTW for those of you who don't know about the valving system ducatis use, it's kinda neat... check out the wiki:
