The problem with the SL, is it isn't much different than a Base with an Akra. I bet 90% of the people that rode both blindfolded, would not know the difference, and would run into some obstacle they didn't see at the same speed.

The Desmo is a unique beast for sure!

Superleggera , simply because it is a bike that you can live with daily.

Right now I'm undecided due to only 400 miles on an 1199r. I did put 19,000 miles on a D16rr and I can tell you the bike was completely amazing once you got into triple digits. The D16rr can only be appreciated when ridden on open twisty highways or the track.

Desmo

Desmo because it looks simple and beautiful, lot of people argue over the 1199 in the non Ducatisti world but no one slags off the Desmo and you can't, I like the 1199 but I only bought it to have the latest thing I could justifiably to buy for the money, I like looking at my 749 more!

couldn't agree more , the ugliest bike around and being a Ducati make the bike looks uglier because it is not their style no matter how powerful it is , and they should colored it black so no one can suffer.

Just because Desmo doesn't look like GSX-R doesn't mean it is ugly, guys.
