There were very few bikes there that appealed to me at all.

(The old single did.)

What happened to simplicity? Design instead of decoration? Form reflecting function?

All I saw was "look at me" paint, decals and glitz that made me more likely to look away.

Am I alone?

PS - I'm not into tattoos and body jewelery either. :eek:

wow, that was a letdown. single was most interesting, for sure. but, I don't like it. and I just realized that the more I see of the drivel, the worse it looks. at least with the 999 and the proboscistrada, I got used to them.

I agree. The 1170 was the only one that did anything for me.

A bunch of bolt ons and a paint job never impresses me. Anyone with a credit card can pull that off. I'd prefer something that outwardly looks stock but has the work done where it counts.

The 1170 was neat because it was truly customized, even if it isn't my style.

So which bike won, please?

I voted for the F01, as the bike was assembled in the UK :)

Being a UK visitor to WDW, location was only part of my reasoning, I also thought it was the best executed Ducati at the contest, hence my vote:



I'd still like to know which bike won?
