Ducati's in are so over priced that even a person with money will think 10 times over before settling for one! I actually cannot make any sense as to why someone should buy a ducati in the first place. 50 Lakhs for a bike IIRC? It looks Ravishing, it has definite value, and it has a pedigree, but is it still worth the pricetag?

It's like comparing a Lamborghini Gallardo LP 570-4 Superleggera to a Nissan R35 GT-R! The Gallardo is almost 3 times the price of the GT-R; but the GT-R has the legs too!

I don't think it is priced 50L, if yes then its not worth it(IMHO)? There are other options too which are better and cheap(one fifth of the price).

IIRC, the 1098 S is 48lac ex-showroom. So, OTR it should be 50+lacs. Again, the 1098 R is even expensive but i don't remember the pricing exactly.

My fav the Desmocedici RR(is not on sale in India) will cost approx 64lac INR 'excluding the import duties' So OTR it would be a nice 1cr+ in our country. Howwzzat ?

Yes picture is surely suggesting that 848 is shodded with slicks.

@Scorcher: Are you sure that its 1098 S and not R which is priced at 48 lacs?

Though this is an old price list but even if there is any sort of revision in pricing it will be to a limited extent only.

Oh, then i must be talking about the 1098 R Troy Bayliss edition in all probability because this info was given to me by a friend who is reputed to use white/red combo super bike(got clue tvm bhpians ?)

Thanks for the correction bro !

But the Desmocedici info is first hand and accurate !

brother i dont think the ducati 848 came with slicks, acording to me ducati high end motorcycles come with Pirelli Diablo supercorsa SC2 which are the tires i use for the race on the track for my R1, and we even get pirelli diablo dragoncorsa SC2 on the 1098S

Besides that, i think nothing looks better than riding a SBK with a really cool helmet.

But i apologize for the riding style as most of the time he was trying to escape from the crowd/traffic. But i'm by no means supporting the style of riding.

Ride Safe - Scy.
Bro, i have already given explanation for that bro. ^^

Thanks for the info bro. In the pic it looks very much like slicks. That is why i was confused. Btw, someone told in last page that they do come with slicks(optional?).

Very true, incase of a ducati, and other italian bikes, they offer the same things plus the snob value and brand pedigree at 5 times more the price.

the 1098R is 48lacs AFAIK , yes there are cheaper options, which are even quicker, but nothing matches the torque curve and the feel of owning a ducati , just place an R1/CBR side by side to a 1098R , and you will know.
