As much as a PITA Ducati's can be, you know you're looking at something different when you see one. I was recently at a multi Japanese brand dealership checking out the latest this and that. I've owned a lot of Japanese bikes and may again, but at certain angles, looking down the rows and rows of them in that dealership, they really did all kind of look the same. Nothing special stood out. No panache. Not much personality.
True, a lot less money and usually a lot less headaches, but nothing that really grabbed me with that, "Wow! I've gotta get one of those" emotion.
