Ducati Supersport

Has anyone had a chance to ride this yet, if so how does it compare to the GSXS?

Here's a pretty good review:

I was lusting after one of those before I bought my S1000F, but I succumbed to the price, reliability, and availability of parts and service that Suzuki offers. I'm sure the Ducati SS is a great bike, but I'm also happy with my GSX-S. (and from the video, the S1000 actually sounds better).

If I was going to buy a Ducati, this would probably be it. Beautiful Bike. I wish I had a test ride on it.

Its sexy as pretty much all Ducati's are. But compared to the Suzuki its underpowered and costs like $2500 more. Plus you have to factor in relatively (compared to Japanese bikes) high maintenance costs. And its penchant to be in the repair shop.
