Although the 915 sounds tempting, for reliability and performance reasons, I would opt for the newer and better designed "Testastretta" motor of the 998.

-- offer $4500 for the 916, and you'll be happy, especially if you're a "new to ducati" owner

-- the 998 would be a deal if all maint has been done, and you get it for $7000...not much more...full service maint. can add significantly to the price of your bike

-- which ever way you decide good luck....you'll love either one !!

The 998 is the better bike in every way.

The 998. . .

BUT puhleeeeeeeeez, remove the stickers.
+1. Personally, being old school and an old fart, I wouldn't buy either, especially for a first Ducati. And never with one with that many stickers. Who knows what's being covered up.
