Went out for a good ride with a friend on his brand new V4s and though it has all the bells and whistles, a fabulous engine and chasis; I could not warm to the looks. I think Ducati have lost a bit of that Ducati "specialness" and from the side it could be a Honda. After the V4 Streetfighter, I had high hopes and maybe in a year or two they will come out with a road focussed version and the Pikes Peak of course, but for now, I will continue enjoying my 2010.

It could be interesting at the traffic lights.
