From what I hear it they will be here in March, at least the standard 1098. I don't know about the S. I'm with you though, sure looks tempting.

Ducati had one on display at the bike show in Toronto two weeks ago. Believe me, you have to see this bike in person. It is the best looking Duc ever. I WILL own a 1098 some day.

I read they were supposed to be cheap $$- Like $15k:) , which is pretty cheap for a Duc. I work at a Kawi dealership and an '07 ZX10 is like $11500.

are they stupid? They list a 999s as the same price as a 1098s; who's going to buy the older 999s for the same price?!!
That's what a Belgian bikemag found best about the bike, that it comes at the same price as the previous model (999).
Probably that 999 on the site has some upgrades here and there :O

I do like that Tri-color paint, but not for that much extra.
Yeah they are, colmans power sports/power ride is a pretty :thatsgay dealership. Their previous owner Mr. Colman was a scam man all the way, even got himself a year or two in jail not too long ago. I think it was bought out by some fairly big company recently and has been on the upswing. Rather than a big impersonal deliberately scamming dealership, its now just a big impersonal dealership:)
