Really depends on what you want and what you can afford.
If you have the money, new is always good.
Unless you can afford to pay a dealer $800 - $1200 a year for maintenance, then plan to learn how to work on your own bike.
This forum is great for the self mechanic.

Old or new or new its a Ducati so its going to have its quirks. Older is generally simpler to work on and not hard to get parts for if you stay 1980+ Older than that is a different ballgame all together. Newer bikes are a bit harder to work on because of tighter packaging and thus use some specialized parts and tools and they are more expensive.

Regards,


Jason

Get Both. The older ones have so much more soul, are simpler and are a blast to ride. The newer ones have more technology and more power and are a blast to ride. >:)

I found it easier to get parts for my 1974 750GT than I do for my 1991 907ie... maybe not literally true but it sure seemed that way.


I think if you have to ask, you should buy new. But no one knows what you consider "old". For all we know you think 2010 is old, or that "used" = "old" so even a 2013 with time remaining on the warranty is "old". To me if you say you want an old Ducati I'm thinking bevel, not 1098...
