Nice! I was actually looking for 900 SSCR (what a lovely bike, one of the most favorite things of mine) to fix and restore/mod when I first paid attention to 899 Panigale. I have no need for a bike like 899, but I just sort of fell in love with it, and now here it is. Sometimes, these things just happens...I guy at my last job had just gotten one, I used to go out at lunchtime and just admire the oodles of cool little engineered bits on it everywhere. Truly a work of art. By the way, I own a Ducati 900 SSCR.
899? It's awesome. Slow street corners not so great, but when you can load up the suspension properly, it's incredible. It's probably all the modern bikes (really, the only modern bike I know is my 899, all the rest of my bikes are pre-1989), but the chassis has so much grip and feel. It's really a shame that it's a bit too much bike for a street, I always feel wasting it, but it's such a pleasure to ride.Very nice!! How does it handle? I would own one here in in Chicago just a bit too dangerous to go as fast as I'd like ha
