I had a series of Ducati's 1099S, 1198S, ST3S after a K1200RS and a R1100RS. When the S1000RR came out I said no way could I own that, it's too ugly. Asymmetrical headlights are you kidding me, fish gills UGH. The Ducati was a nice bike (somedays) but their dealer network leaved a lot to be desired, at least where I live so I sold all the Duc's and bought a S1000RR and actually warmed up to the aesthetics. I decked it out to be a sport tourer. Traded up to a 2016 and I was able to transfer most of the accessories to keep it a sport tourer. Don't see the possibility of transferring anything to this new bike. All the comparisons made me look at the Ducati website and I noticed that the Super Sport has factory hard bags. HMMMM Unfortunately the dealers are the same. It does beg the question what happened to Sport tourers with the emphasis on sport, I do hand it to Ducati for having one. I probably will warm up to the new S1000RR but I'm in no hurry, the 2016 I have now is still more capable than me, so no reason to move on, yet?
