Wow. We had that identical bike.

Maybe it wants to be back again. Too bad one of my worst wrecks was on a Duc, I kinda lost taste for them after that..

two years ago I would have been all over that, even tho it's a biposto. I kinda stopped looking for Ducs. Maybe I need to turn an RSS feed on again, just to see what the market looks like...

these bikes are HIGHLY sought after in the duc world, and under appreciated everywhere else. Chassis is very close to the legendary 851. body panels even bolt right up. Basically it's an 851 with a 2v motor. Mine is highly modded, and the sp version, which had better suspension (which has been upgraded) and braking.

they do lack horsepower, but not torque. slap on a set of fcr's, and this 11 year old bike will run with (and beat) any modern bike in the canyons.

I hear ya but I'm a fixed income pensioner who wants to sink his meager savings into the right Pig this time around.
