    The Supersport is a nice looking machine. It feels comfortable (on the showroom floor anyway) but its about 25-30 hp short of being really interesting for that price point. YMMV

    Headlights pay homage to GiGi. Tough price point for sure but looks great

    Wanna see a graph of an ex BSB 1199RS and a 1299 with same basic modifications....ran this pair yesterday and holy shit...mind blown. Both on VP T4 unleaded 100 octane straight gasoline. The heavily modified 1299 definitely had a slight edge on torque compared to the Corse Ducati bike. At this level add about 20% to my dyno graphs to equivilate with DynoJet dyno numbers. By far this pair rocked the dyno harder than ANY other naturally aspirated twin cylinder motor ever has and the supercharged Aprilia Punisher was only a wee bit higher...this is true holy-shit level horsepower from a twin cylinder naturally aspirated motor!

    OR, for 14,900 you could get a 17 Tuono which is an amazing bike! I do like the Supersport though .....looks wise it is spot on!
