This is not a good forum to get a consensus, as you can see you are going to get answers that are all over the place. To me it is pretty simple... I bought a Ducati because of several factors, not the least of which is that it is NOT a Suzuki/Yamaha/Honda. If your intention is to use this as a commuter, then you are already looking at the right model, however like most here have recommended, I think you need to look at the used market.
On this portal there is a classifieds section which has few peers... I found my R there and bought it from a member of this forum. You will find Duc's in pristine condition, low miles and most importantly, loved and taken care of. Check it out...
