First of all this bike is the nicest bike I have ever ridden. The power into the turns and coming out is what this bike is built for. The throttle is hard to get used to but after a couple months of riding your wrist gets used to it. Clutch is stiff... you can get to clicking gears pretty easily. The sound of the Terminogni exhaust is fantastic, even louder and deeper than the stock. Front is a little hard but you can adjust very easily. At 155 lbs and 6' tall this bike fits me perfectly. The bike has got all the great components stock and the attention this bike draws is ridiculous. No need to do much to this bike, I just like the Termignoni exhaust but if I had it to do over again I would go carbon fiber (expensive). Oh yeah and if you can ride very good, this bike WILL hang with the GSXR 750's on the straight aways and will burn almost anything in the turns. Good luck to those who try to hang with the 800ss. Soft tires are a good mod as well. And for all you old farts out there, go buy a touring bike if you're not comfortable, what do you expect. And don't change the handlebars. Very outstanding performance coming out of this Italian Dream Machine.

Every ride on this bike is awesome. I agree with most of the previous reviews with a couple of exceptions. One stated that the rear brake is useless. This is not a bad thing. Many riders will drill their rear rotor or remove rear brake pad material to prevent rear brake lockup. The 800's rear brake will slow you down but I don't think you could ever lock it up. The stock rear brake is perfect for trail braking. I found the Duc comfortable as is maybe because I'm a tall rider and I would suggest to a new owner to wait until you get the feel of the bike before making the decision to install Helibars. I have 200 miles on mine only because I was off the bike for 5 weeks due to a sports injury. The L-Twin has a distinct sound one just has to love. It has plenty of power and torque, but it is more forgiving at the throttle than the in-line fours. The best thing I like about the SS800 though is how it corners. It's like surfing the street. It is as stated previously a lot of bike for the money compared to some of the other bikes available which generally cost more.

I don't personally own this bike, I have an '05 Kawasaki ZZR600 but rode a friend's (look at Suresh's review). The fantastic thing about a Ducati? You get top-of-the-line components OFF THE SHELF with this thing. Brembo brakes, hydraulic clutch, Michelin tires, you name it, this $8000 bike has it. It's uncanny how this bike dives into corners. The feed back in your hands is unbelievable. It's as if you could take 80 mph sweepers with your fingertips all day. Highly recommended!

I just got this bike and love it! Traded in my 01 Guzzi V11 Sport, the Duck is superior in every aspect, even in the break in procedure, this bike is fast but extremely gentle on the power delivery, the tranny unlike my Guzzi is slick and precise, the motor is very quiet very little mechanical noise. The fit and finish is excellent at part with BMW, highest quality components, Brembo, Marsochi etc. The sound is incredible total intoxication! Attention getter every were, you feel like a million bucks on this thing. Many cool features like the tank flips up on hinges and you can work on the engine easily. Macrochiped key, fuel injection is flawless, handling is incredible! Also the bike is very light. Great all around bike.

I have owned this state-of-the-art machine for only 3 weeks now but I would strongly recommend to anyone who is shopping for Ducati's. Since the first 621 miles servicing, the bike is smooth and handles like a rock at marginally high speeds. The wrists and neck get sore after driving for a while. Cornering is great.
