I first wrote my review of my 2000 Ducati 996S after only having ridden the bike about 500 miles. Well, over four thousand miles later, I still can only gush over this machine. It is still the best looking series of sportbikes ever sculpted out of Italy spanning the 916, 996 and 998 (although the MV Agusta F4-1000S comes close). Granted Japanese sportbikes may be smoother and more refined, the shear torque, grunt and ferocity of the Ducati is something I wish everyone could experience. The sound emminating from the pipes is nothing short of a symphony. The handling of the 996S is where this bike still shines utilizing the amazing Ohlins suspension. Just an all around amazing machine that begs to be driven hard and fast.

I now have 16000 miles on my S and I recently put the Gold Marchasini Magnesium wheels on. 6 inch on the rear and standard front. It makes a big difference on the way the bike turns-in at relativly high speeds. As you know the bike takes some effort to turn even if the weight is shifted well to the inside. I recommend the wheels if you can buy them.

Eight months later, I am still loving this bike. It's a keeper. Since I wrote last time, I added pipes and an FIM chip. What a difference. It sounds great and rides even better.

O.K. This is it, this bike's performance is awesome, CBR'S, R1'S, ZX'S, ALL Faster true...But this bike delivers so much more. My plate reads " PIMP " because this bike is a babe magnet.. I rode it 20 miles wearing nothing but a pair of women's panties on a bet, nobody noticed because all they look at is the lines of the bike, the awesome paint job. Who cares if the thong was riding up my butt, the Duck takes all the attention. that's pure magic !! O.K. the Poughkeepsie police did pull me over, but hell, 20 bucks is 20 bucks....I have to take a lot of bets to help pay for this baby !!! And although not the most comfortable bike in the world, it still is worth pain !!! P.S. I did this little panty ride during 5pm rush hour from the Dutchess mall to the Poughkeepsie bridge.. Funny thing is, now I can't stop wearing panties !!!!<br /> Oh the cops let me go, I just got a warning !!!

This is the most exciting and pure sports bike that money can buy. I had been reading in motorcycle magazines about R1`s &#038; CBR`s, and it's true these bikes are faster and more powerfull. I have friends that own these japanese motorcycles but let me tell you if they have the chance ($,$,$) to buy a DUCATI 996S,they won't think twice. To me buying a Ducati is like buying a piece of art that you will own for years to come. Besides the fact they have the last....
