This post has TROLL written all over it! I would say ,however, that Ducatis come from the factory with an overall better component package in stock trim than a stock japanese bike. Special edition race replica jap bikes and corresponding Ducati bikes are more of an even playing field. Overall power is owned by the inline four. Being better has everything to do with what you are looking for in a motorcycle. I sure hope this did not help you in the least because I think you are probably a Troll looking to bash us on the r6 forum.
