Not that this would ever happen, in fact it’s a bit ludicrous, but if ducati made a 4 banger would anyone here purchase?

i just got my 675, the 3 cylinder is the best thing since sliced bread...i never use my ducati anymore...in fact if it werent for the fact that its such a beautiful bike(duc), id have trouble reasoning riding it over the daytona...

they have made a 4 banger as it were....it is just not an inline 4 cylinder...it is a V-4 configuration!....it is currently called the Desmosedici!

"made" well that is a broad word in this application...... How many people do you know what have a desmosedici??? Besides Capirossi!

Triumph 675 Triple

Glad you like your new 675. I'm sure it is as good as the magazines suggest. However, "better than a Ducati" is mostly subjective. Sorry, even though the styling is much better on the 675, it still doesn't match up to my 748 (or an MV F4, for that matter). There's also just something about a 90-degree twin that flat-out works for me. The relative simplicity, the narrowness, the sound. To each his/her own - it makes the world go 'round.

in what ways do you mean it wont out do your 748?

in all the tests its been recorded as being even faster than an r1 40-120
0-60 3.4? i think? dont quote me...

A V-Four in a Sport-Tourer? Maybe. But, only if the valve adjusts were cheaper or further apart. So far I'm very happy with the twin.

675

I said the 675 doesn't match up in styling, not performance. That is obviously a personal opinion on my part. You are entitled to your own.

OBTW, since mine is an "R" model, I don't think the 748 gives up much in performance either, but it did cost more than the Trumpet.

Yep, that's why I have 4 90-degree twins (2 Ducatis, 2 Guzzis):cool: .

you buy a ducati because it speaks to you, because of the history behind the bike, because of an appreciation for art.

You don't buy a ducati to be the fastest on the block, to be the coolest, hippest kid, or to stunt.

different bikes for different reasons. The 675 is a nice bike, but it doesn't move me NEARLY as much as the 900SS I have, or the MS4R that my hubby has.

sounds to me like you need a liter class I4 bike, then you'll be happy. especially if you're floored by the triple compared to the duc twin

o please

Whats with you and following my threads? and not at all, i dislike most jap bikes...i thought ducatis were amazing...that was of course untill it became a machine in the shop more than on the road...i LOVE aprilias...too big tho...does it matter to you what i like? 1-liter i-4 please...dont classify me as the typical riceburner because you dislike my point of views...i love the character of the ducati...the twin is nice...i find the 3 cylinder more -fun- ? im not sure if thats the right word...but its just different...and as for the 4 cylinder..it was a thought...infact i switched from a cbr to a 749s...

stunting* btw* please lady...i started a thred on here about how against stunting i am...i race...as in on a track...as in i do many track days...im not your typical 21 year old that stunts...if i was id be in a gsx forum right now...im not...stop trying to classify and fit everyone into a little "box" not every young person stunts, or wants an 4 cylinder jap bike...i do believe triumph is british ;)

And for my research paper (of any topic) i did the company history of ducatis :D so i know a thing or two...not everything by any means but a good deal

in any event-whats with this Capirossi bike? any more info..? was that a real thred about one they had for sale?

675 is getting very good reviews, but I don't know how it lines up in terms of racing. Its definitely a cheater bike like the Quack 636. Maybe they should line up against each other on the grid. What was said earlier that its not about speed is correct, hell, even my 05 600RR with mods gave 996s a run for their money.
