Recently I've been converted to Ducati and I fell in love completely with the brand. I purchased recently a brand new V4 Speciale which I intend to use it on the road and on the track too.

Thing is, I find the V2s super-sports, a die-ing breed, and as Ducati brought on sale the FE, it's pretty clear we will most probably not see a V2 super sport ever again from Ducati, at least in the bigger cc class.

I love the FE but I find the 1299 SL much more special, and I saw some deals for brand new 0km bikes ranging from 70-80k Euro. I know they cost an arm and a leg and a kidney and even if I don't recall exactly how much were they sold from Ducati initially, I'm left wondering if those bikes will increase in value as time goes by, considering the rare aspect of those bikes and the above reasoning.

So would it be a good investment to get one and hold on to it for a few decades, especially if the bike is not ridden, fluids taken out and properly stored!?

And before you all go sacrilege on me, I know...it would be a heavy temptation not to ride it especially on track, but the thought alone of a chance of crashing the V4 Speciale scares the crap out of me, let alone a SL, would make me quickly reconsider and just use at as an art form, a pinnacle of what can be achieved with a V2 super sport.

Am I nuts? If so then shoot and talk be out of it, because I will have a freaking hard time justifying paying that price for a bike.
you are? how will Ducati improve reliability, if nobody riders them far enough to see them blow up?

Function>>>Form>>> beauty? are Ducatis beautiful in a lounge room or on a race track? Are they more valuable in a lounge room or on a race track?
