Ducati GT1000 riding

The right Ducati for those Sunday morning rides.

All so we do think the Ducati 1198S is the lust-worthy motorcycle (though the Yamaha R1 is not too far behind…!) in the whole right now. But the GT1000 looks charming in its own retro-classic For the times when you aren’t in the for full race leathers – for Sunday morning rides you’d rather just on an old leather jacket and wear a open-face helmet – the GT1000 just be perfect.

Now, while the GT1000 is being ridden fast, you may enjoy the bike more if you down a bit. It’s the of bike on which you’d to look around a bit, the scenery. This definitely about performance calibrated to the hundredth of a second – it’s style and turning on the charm…

The GT1000 has no storage space, but a problem that the touring – with its saddlebags and high – should take care of. At (US$13,100), the GT1000 probably for everyone. But then stylish, Italian motorcycle like one can never be cheap.
