Jissie that Ducati looks like it's got some seriously long rake. That MV is seriously beautiful! Hard choice there, man.

For me it's between the new 890 and the 1290.

The problem is, having a 1290 already :ROFLMAO: The power is very addictive.

Rhetorical question or you want actual advice?

For myself....I think 890 if I had to only have one bike

T7 world raid. Msrp $14 000
Wont come to our shores....sadly....I have placed an order for the 2023 890 but stock will only be available next year, Ducati have stock, waiting to hear on the MV Agusta before a commit. At this stage the Norden 901 is available and is the cheapest...I took one for a test ride but wasnt impressed, no soul...

The Ducati is the best looking one but by most accounts disappointing in several respects.

1290 to park next to my other KTMs 😮😈
