All I can say is it's totally awesome! My previous bike after a 13 year lull was a '94 SS and all I can say is the 1000DS is worlds apart. The motor spins effortlessly right into the nether regions of the speed and rev limit; it never for a moment feels vague or disoriented in any way. I'm in love. It's not the latest or greatest, but for me it satisfies all needs of a modern biker - speed, handling, reliable and smooth power delivery, encompassing wonderful handling properties which leave the rider looking for more corners and tighter bends in every foray on the open road. I love it and I don't wish to part company any time soon. Here's to an ol' girl with plenty to offer the discerning rider.

This is my third bike and first sportsbike so I'm no expert, however if I go by looks, comfort and performance: I'm amazed! my other ride is a 1600 04 mean streak that is great fun and I love her to death but this is a rock steady smooth ride that effortlessly gets along the highway providing me with a natural high second to nothing I've experienced in the past. Comfortable, and personally I think the stock exhaust sounds ok you can still feel it's a Ducati just being within 20 ft of it yet it's silent with nothing to prove. The only small beef I have is a gap in the rear fairing above the tail light, the tail light shines thru the crack and it's a tad unsightly on an otherwise perfect looking machine. easy fixed Summary: There are probably much faster bikes but this one is a dreamy powerhouse and a bit of a chick magnet even over my big chrome cruiser. I love it - go buy one.

I am the very recent owner (11/02/04), of an '05 1000 DS. My last mount was a Ducati 900 SS/FE, a rare and unique bike. The difference in the two bikes however, is amazing. I am first and foremost impressed with the new generation twin-spark, fuel injected engine and its seemingly quantum leap in torque. Good work Ducati. I mean, this thing is incredible! I had a set of Remus carbon cans installed before I took delivery, knowing that the stock exhaust system is quite restrictive and renders the Duc as melodic as a Sears lawn tractor. I believe it liberated about 7 HP, according to the Mechanic. The bike has a definite sport feel, yet behaves in a civil manner, reacting predictably to expansion joints and other road maladies. It is a bit cramped, but that is the nature of this type of bike. I have not noticed the type of power fade I had experienced from my previous Duc, and hope that the Fuel injection has remedied that problem, as it was quite pronounced on my '98 900. This machine exudes character, from the quirky clutch antics to the beautiful clattering of Desmodromic valve actuation, and is a must for someone who has run the Japanese Sport bike gamut and is now ready for the panache that only a Ducati can provide.

I purchased my Ducati in April of 2004 and after 3 Japanese brands of motorcycle(Suzuki GS 500LF 1985, Honda 750-4 '79, and a Kawaski ZX-9RD '01) I feel I have found my destiny in sport bikes. Power and handling are 5 star, I ran, in a friendly race against a Hayabusa 1300 on the highway and was thoroughly impressed with the power and the speed at which I was able to reach redline. I love this Ducati!

This bike is my 1st Ducati, but my 8th sportbike. I was a bit worried about the tranny for the first 500kms, but all the false neutrals/missed shifts have sorted themselves out since break in. The bike has so much character when ridden. The sounds, the shakes, the looks, the feel, and even the differences day to day. It is very special every time I ride it. It lacks the head snapping acceleration above 200km/hr, but sub 200 it is really a wicked smooth ride. Naturally it is rock stable in the corners, and deceptively quick since there are fewer moments of holy crap as the bike is so easy to ride fast. I am very pleased and would buy this one all over again, which is saying a lot. My last Honda 929 I wanted to sell after 3 weeks. I have put Termi low rise, and a K&N filter with open airbox lid. The sound is to die for, and the machine has a quicker response now. First gear can power the front up at will, and second is just plain hang-on fun with the occasional small powerlift now. I would say I need about 10 more hp to have a pure dream ride machine. That would make the 1000ds a legend in sportbike rider satisfaction history.
