+1, I know and respect all the 1098R is capable of, but at the end of the day it is just another version of all the other 1098's out there. The D16RR is more exclusive, and a radical departure from anything Ducati has ever put on the street. Sexy lines, Sexy sound, and top of the line Everything. For me it would be like the "Unicorn" mentioned in the Gone in 60 Seconds movie.. the Unattainable prize. Not sure I could ever name a D16RR Eleanor though. I'll leave that to the Foose-designed Shelby's.I´d go with the Desmosedici in a heartbeat.
I know the 1098R is probably a better bike for me, but i don´t care.. The looks and exclussivity of the D16RR would top it for me.
