This is good info. Thanks. I have been wanting to ride a 1098. I will look for this when it comes to North Texas.
Yes, I was thinking the same thing, as the 1098 wasI'd be surprised if they demo ride 1098's.
More likely either the Hypermotard or the Monster.
At least that's what was available during my demo ride day.
The 1100 Monster is real nice bike.
And it sounds sweet with Termingioni exhausts.
I really like the new RC8 but I have yet to see one in the flesh.The KTM RC8 isn't bad either. It's about in the same price range as the 1198 as well.
Which is about twice what my price range is however.
Yeah the closest I'll ever get to any of those bikes is my RC51.I really like the new RC8 but I have yet to see one in the flesh.
The styling kinda put me off at first, but it grows on you and I
find myself really liking it now. I was hoping the RC8 was gonna
be within my price range too, but I understand they're at $20K,
so owning one now is just a fantasy, likewise the Ducati 1198.
I guess we can thank the worthless shrinking U.S. Dollar against
the Euro for the high prices.
