Live at the track even though I am 400 kms from it, early days was the Hyper, then a S4R and now it's the Streetfighter 848. Have been eyeballing the RC8 R, but I reckon the 899 might be the baby, anyone done a track day on it yet.

haven't read anything on the 899 track performance yet.

It'll be interesting to see how the suspension compares.
It will, im sure Ducati will come through with something suitable for it. At least with a bike priced in the range the 899 is, there's more of a chance for stronger aftermarket support.

Here is a first ride report done on the track at Imola. It was in the wet though but the writer praises the DTC and other electronics in those conditions

Thanks for sharing, I guess it makes the 899 more of a go anywhere bike in some ways. At least for those commuting with it within the city and suburbs it will be a great ride

Another treat for you guys, I'm sure you have seen it but just in case...

On-board video of Ducati's test rider on the 899 at Imola in the dry!

This solidified the 899 as the perfect all-around in my mind. Track, street, commuter.

Watch that TC light when he gets on the gas out of the corners! Woo hoo!

thanks for the wicked find, the video can be seen embedded below:


I just wish the instrument cluster was like the one on the 1199

What an awesome video. I definitely agree that a TFT screen would be cool, but that's Audi for you! Haha
