Ugly rides are always more fun.
You should see my g/f...but she's just as crazy to throw a leg over as a Diavel.

Ups on the Mille.

Anybody else think that a tall screen and "saddlebags" on a Diavel is kinda like falsies on grandma?

They're even uglier in person.

Meh, I was surprised by how small it was in person. Other than the ginormous tyre. Until you get hustling, but in traffic or around town it feels alot smaller & more flickable than I thought. Not tiny like a Monster, but it's no cruiser.

I was expecting something like a B-King or MT-01, it even feels smaller than VMax.
Haa haa the bags & tail are off the Strada, it's cheaper to swap the seat & tail off a Strada than it is to get the wheels off a Carbon.
Besides all Ducati's should have a little red in them.

Oh I dunno... in days gone by I've embarrassed quite a few guys on sport bikes, with far less capable bikes than that vintage Duck, with lesser tires.

When I sat on it, it didn't feel flickable, it felt tiny and squished. I had expected it to be bigger but itwas one of the smallest and most uncomfortable full size motorcycle I have sat on. I'm 6'1" and my girlfriend who's 5'7" also said it felt small compared to the bikes she had sat on at the motorcycle show.

Yesterday and today I really want one of these. Just sold my beloved 990smt and tested an 1190. It was a great bike but I just prefer the 990. I have been all over the place trying to decide what to get next, but I always come back to the KTM.
