Ducati 999 = yuck!

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MV Agusta F4 : One Thread

Just saw the pictures of the new 999, and from a styling standpoint I'd say that Ducati has really dropped the ball. The nose looks like someone (Terblanche?) spent too much time in art school. Guess it's up to MV Agusta (and perhaps Benelli and Aprilia) to carry the torch...

I thought the same thing the first few times i looked at it. After a while it really started to grow on me. Now I think it's beautiful. I can't wait to see it in person. I'll probably end up ownimg one someday. Have already had three 996's. They are awesome. Should be buying a 2002 f4s silver sometime this week. Hope it rides as good as it looks.

Sorry guys...the reviews of the performance of the 999 are too good! I think the styling is beautiful...very reminiscent of the MV actually, but not quite as "locked in'...the ovrall package is something I think I want to own...
