Ducati 898

Change can be beautiful... especially when carbon fiber is embraced so lovingly...

Screw the trellis frame! I'd take a cf frame and tank any day! And, with a motogp platform, I bet it would come with a slipper clutch too!! Only complaint is the front end is very similar to the new CBR.

I agree, I do like ours better! And although I am OBVIOUSLY not a fan of carbon fiber, I could learn to love it!
