Not to mention that the Duc's have a horrible maintance routine. They are the sportbike version of HD.
This one I knew Twisty would agree with me on.twisty said:The 999 is not that bad. A guy @ the track had one and said if you keep on you valve adjustments you should be ok. EVERY 8k miles!!!! TO HELL WITH THAT!!! They are the HD of sportbikes. Plus they use HEX heads for everything and those are hard to safety wire. Now the Aprillia Factory, thats a bike. Another guy @ the track has one. He has a Mille R and never has touched the motor in 10K race miles. Now that is a work horse.!!!!

I suppose the same could be said for a Porsche, Lexus, Inifiniti, you name it. I think a Duc has somewhat of a status symbol attached to it. They certainly aren't as prevalent as Jap bikes. Some folks just like all things Italian.
Duc riders will differ with u on that opinion though..trust me, I've asked one before why chooses to ride a Duc. I got into a "discussion" with him about how he thinks japanese bikes suck. :cursin:GSXR750DJ said:The same could be said about cloths. You can buy them at Bloomingdales or get the knock offs at Kmart. Its all a status someone wants to carry or show off with. :dthumb:
That thing is a work of art, pure and simple.ShanMan14 said:Did someone say 999?
Call the Duc a piece of **** all you want. (I take it that's what you're trying to say?) Honestly, though, you sound just like the 19 year olds ClubSi that say Porsches, etc, are overpriced pieces of scrap metal.twisty said:Wait till the "cube" is in production. Then we will talk. @ least Aprillia's aren't in the shop every week with at "muffler" bearing failure. Its ok tho, Aprillia's are just the favored bike of "EVERY" mag that tested the twins this year, last, and year before that.
