In race trim the 999 remains one of the most attractive bikes ever.
But I am biased. They also fell completely different to ride that the Ducati Superbikes before or since. Very narrow and hard, the cliché of a feeling of being milled out of billet applies to the feel when riding. The stock seat is literally thin hard foam, but perfectly shaped. Clip-ons super narrow, it doesn't even feel like it was made by the same company as a Panigale.
