This is my second new bike in 2 years. Traded the C50 Boulevard on the Ducati. I rode both the 1000, and 620. If I had the cash at the time, I would have chosen the 1000. But the 620 still impressed me enough to sign on the dotted line. The bike can be challenging to throw a leg over the rear, but once mounted up the riding position is comfortable. The fist thing you notice when cruising down the highway, is how well the faring directs wind over you for its size. It also seems to have an endless gearbox at times, keep forgetting it has 6. Once off the highway, and on to some back roads, you'll find that the bike really comes into its nature.
It fits narrow between the legs, and with the bar width, and riding position, this thing CARVES through the corners like none other Iíve ridden.
It inspires confidence, and never leads you a- stray. Although not quite as sexy as the 1000, no matter where I park her, it always draws a crowd. Very few Ducs in my area running around.
So yes, itís a great ego-stroker too.
For the price, you get some top-of-the-line standard equipment you donít see on many bikes. To name a few...Marelli FI, steel braided brake, and clutch hoses, Brembo brakes, Awesome headlight, Desmo valve actuation (no valve springs) composite fuel tank...never rust out or dent. What can I say, itís a great all-rounder, and I would recommend the product. I think my next bike might be the 1000S Multistrada, with factory tuned Ohlins suspension............OH YEAH!
Upgrades/Accessories: 14T countershaft sprocket a must, as many agree
Modified factory can....NOTHING sounds like a Ducati L-Twin.
