Don't know about anybody else, but I would buy a bike based on what I was going to use it for. I just can't see buying a Ducati for a "daily driver" If you want an exotic sport bike, and actually intend to use it as a sport bike, then get a Ducati. But do not expect it to be a good daily driver. Such bikes are to high strung and uncomfortable for "transportation"
I won't spend more on a bike than I think it's worth, but if it's a good deal, I don't seem to have a problem buying bikes I don't need.
