Let’s see now… I’ve had a 1990 Ducati 750 Sport, a 1996 Ducati 900 SS, 1998 Ducati 748 and lastly a 2001 Ducati 996. It’s been years now since I’ve thrown a leg over one of Ducati’s fiendish super scoots and I’ll be honest when I say that I miss them everyday. You see there is something about these Italian pasta rockets that gets under your skin and creeps into your soul. Maybe its the rumble of those old dry clutches clattering together, or perhaps the thunderous boom that emitted from those big V-twin power plants. All I know is that now, after seeing their ad for the new 1199 Panigale, I want one again.
