2007 bimota db5-s

anyone here own one? i would like honest opinions on it ... is it a dog? i love everything else about it but the power, i currently have a 1098 and i used to have a 749, and of course working at the dealership i get to ride all the other eye tey leeeaan machines, so if you tell me that it feels similar to like a older s2r 1000 or a sportclassic in terms of acceleration then i would have a better idea before i make a decision on one .... i would really appreciate some input,.... a test ride is out of the question for now.

thanks for the pic bimotard, now would you mind telling me if in your opinion does the bike feel slow? does it accelerate faster than a monster or maybe even a hyper? how is it in the turns? im very interested in your input... thanks!

I donīt need 150 Cv for to go fast, The Bimota is a fantastic bike, a very funny bike, his frame and brakes are fantastic.
I have many friends with Ducatis models and they are thinking to buy a DB5.
