I'm looking to pick up our first Ducati and have only test ridden the Monster 796 at this point, which is an exceptionally comfortable bike (with ridiculously tall gearing stock). I kind of overlooked the SF848 and have been re-examining it as well since the difference in price is not significant enough to rule it out, and clearly there is a lot more performance on tap.
Can anyone give me a quick pros/cons discussion regarding the SF848 versus the Monster 796? Comfort is an important part of this too, since we're replacing a Triumph Daytona 675 with the bike and want something a LOT more comfortable. I definitely realize the SF848 has a lot more performance on top by the stats alone, but would love to hear from those who have ridden or owned both if possible.
It's a record raining June up here, or else I probably would have ridden one already!
