New to the forum....don't have a Ducati as yet.

Yup, no Ducati. I'm here to find to listen and learn all things Ducati.

I've been riding for years and remember how amazing the 916 was when it first came out. I'm in the market for a 996 or a 998, and trying to find out as much as I can before pulling the pin.

My current bike is a 2001 Honda VFR800. Amazing bike. But time to add some real character to the stable.

Welcome to the forum. There's tons of info on here about the 9xx series bikes. I was also really considering one of these when I was looking. Set your priorities when it comes to what you want first. 998 variants are generally more reliable (same service intervals however) than the 916/996 because they don't have the flaking rocker issue as much. IMO the 916 is the premier bike of the 90's, and that'll never change. But that's just scratching the surface
