Ducati Defector

Howdy from the western half of the continental 48. New here and new to BMW. Making the transition from Ducati by way of an s1000RR in motorsports colors. After riding the s1000RR, I'm not sure how much longer my Ducati will have a job.

This thing's a V2 rocket that's Cadillac smooth! Wow!

TBV, I too being a Ducati owner test rode and purchased this Siren Temptress. What man can resist her? However, my Duc if it doesn't sell, will still have a place in my stable. I rode it the other day, and whoa was it different! But not in a bad way.
