That's very tidy, bonus points for the 3 into 4 pipes still being on it.
My dad had a couple of the 750s over the years.
Those stock pipes are hard to find and they like to rust from the inside.

I love it.
Did you read the spec?

That is Hideous. And that is what happens when a car company tries to design a motorcycle for attention and not with the intention of building a nice motorcycle. 🤮
Fixed that for you.

First thing that comes to mind when I look at the Aston Martin.

The Aston Martin/Brough got me thinking - I think the bike I lust after isn't available. It would have:
90deg v-twin
min 990cc
w/cooled
140 - 150rwhp
85+ ft/lb torque
Max 175kg wet
Funny front end - eg. Not telescopic forks, so hub-centre, Hossack, but not that weird combo BMW hang on the front.
SINGLE-SIDED SWINGARM at the back (front would be cool too)
Beautiful sports-bike styling with a full race fairing
Sports-bike handling
Suspension suitable for road and track
Trellis frame
130 road miles from a tank
Quality peripherals - wheels/brakes/gauges
A decent level of user-serviceability
Red paint
Ducati on the side

So... a Bimota Tesi with a 999 motor?

Some of the comments here remind me of when the 999 came out.
Personally I think a bike needs to be ridden before shit is heaped on it.

With only 100 being made and the price tag I wouldn't be surprised if we never see one given a good workout on a track.
Maybe one of you guys should try to get a test ride and report back for us.
At least record an attempt at getting a test ride.

This checks a few of your stated boxes..
Regardless of whether it ticks all your boxes, I lust for it so here it is

Dear Aston Martin... Can I ride your bike so I can report back to the Ducati ms forum please ?
(I promise not to scratch it or say anything bad about it.)

That might work better than me rocking up to that yerongpilly address in the AU ute and asking for a ride.
