I'm inclined to agree. I was pretty excited about the bike but the price is way up there, especially with 10% sales tax and fees on top, and I don't think I need something this extreme in my garage. So I'm back to either adding a retro like a Thruxton R or a Z900RS or just replacing my Street Triple 675 with a new 765.Personally I'd be much more interested in an 800. Who needs 200+ hp on a street bike, and why would you need winglets on a street bike with no windscreen? Just how fast is any responsible rider going to go on the street that winglets are needed? The bike just seems like an attempt to up the competition. I wish Ducati made the bike with a 600 or 800. It would be even lighter and more usable on the street. They need a bike that can compete with the MT09 and 790 Duke.
