How is the DB7 to ride

Interested in hearing owners thoughts on the DB7. I've been riding Ducks for years but have an itch to get the DB7. Wondering how it compares to the 1198 or 1199 as those are my current mainstays.

Thanks in advance for any replies.....

I would say they feel much lighter ( i guess because they are) They have the standard motor but the light weight makes them feel closer to the R. The the speedo needle fell off of this one & the replacement looks a little wobbly as well, but is still on & working good.
To me they are worth being a little finiky, and or hard to get body & chassis parts for. Of course engine parts are as close as a dealer.
I like them

Looks like your rear plate is angled for helicopter cops!
