This is another head turner from Ducati. Nothing is typical in Ducati's product line, but the Sport 1000 which sells a very small portion of USA sales is a rare find on the road. It's like having a muscle car from the 60s or 70s. It is not a Superbike by any means, but it's more than the average rider could possibly handle or need. It is classy and elegant! Of course that famous twin cylinder music which is delivered from a Ducati exhaust is like no other! 150 mph! And 45 mpg! Not bad, and all at a reasonable price point.

I had never ridden a Ducati before I bought this bike, but I've wanted one for a while. My last bike was a Honda VFR800. It was a good bike, almost too good...a little boring...so smooth and effortless to ride. The Ducati, on the other hand has much more personality. It vibrates, has no wind protection, makes noise, is a little uncomfortable, but man, do you ever feel like you are riding a motorcycle. It's light, powerful, sounds fantastic, handles amazingly well and gets more attention when you're out on the street than any bike I've ever owned.

I just picked up a Sport 1000, and I have to say that I'm very happy. The bike is universally and inarguably beautiful. I know that judgments regarding looks are considered subjective, but this is the first bike that I have ever ridden that has received universal praise--Harley riders, Suzuki speed demons, BMW baggers and Tuono hooligans all say the same thing when they see it: "Wow, that's great looking." As for the riding experience, I'm still in break-in, but so far so good. The engine's abundant torque is already very apparent, and the bike handles like a lightweight dream. The steering is quick and stable. The brakes do brake very well--progressive and strong. I was a bit concerned about this because the calipers don't look very hi-tech and my other bike has Brembo monoblocks, Brkatech lightweight rotors and Brembo radial master cylinder. Finally, the new Pirelli's stick as good as they look--fantastic. Now for the caveats: (1) this bike gets two stars for comfort from me because I have long arms--37.5" sleeve length. However, anyone with an average reach--say 34" sleeve length--will be stretched over the tank and probably looking for rest after 30 miles or so (a chiropractor after 60 miles). Again, it's ok for me, but beware--bar risers or something akin to the fantastic Cycle Cat bar angle adjustable clip-ons will probably be a requirement for most. (2) The charcoal canister--CA model--has to go because it's the only ugly thing on this spectacularly styled bike. (3) The seat is comfortable, but a little hard to slide around on. Finally(4), which doesn't bother me much (yet), there is no good place under the seat for a disc lock--unless you don't mind unscrewing the thumb-screw (no screwdriver required) that closes the storage compartment every time you park the bike. All in all: I love the bike so far, and I will report back as I out on more miles. BTW, I bought the red one, which was not an easy choice because they all look stunning.
