To me, the SC Line is more of a novelty thing in that these aren't exactly the first moto most people are going to out and get. Sure, many forum members have in fact purchased an SC as their very first moto, but those aren't the majority. Those who choose to buy this version of Ducati, to me, have a specific taste for a specific moto. As of course, others do for their specific motos.
However, point being, I kinda want the SC line to be discontinued in that from this point on, the constant production of the same moto with subtle changes in ergos (maybe) / paint / little do-dads might not fully be a feasible market to try and force-feed for the sake of nostalgia. You can only get soo vintage or pay homage to a time-frame before it's no longer special. the forum members might in fact feel like this based on the lucky ones to own the 06 versions. I kinda want someone in 5 years to be looking for an SC rather than going out and buying the 2012 version. While it's not an MH900E, I'd like it to be a 2 year version of a line of motos so many people were able to get.
There's plenty out there, but their not at every street corner around the world.
In otherwords, I'd kinda be bummed if these versions of a classic moto, became more of a commodity for the sake of it being a line of motos that's become another Yamaha R1. In that, their a dime a dozen.
Isn't that what a Triumph Bonneville became and still is?
Just a tinge selfish to the SC line,
