I bought a demo CF Black Diavel for 17,799.00. in October 2012. It's listed right now at the dealer for $ 16,700.00. I figure I'd have to discount it a few hundred dolls if I do get an offer. After the dealer takes his brokerage fee of 10% I should net $ 14,760.00 for a loss of $ 3,039.00. A loss of about 18% after one year of ownership. If I had bought a new one I'd have lost an additional $ 2,200 for a total loss of $ 5,239.00 about 27%.

If I was to buy a 1199, I would get the S which in Australia is around 32K. Maybe a second hand Tricolore?

But I think I might do a few years first on the 899 and get the appropriate skills up. More than enough hp for me and will be my first Ducati.

In terms of value, I think the 899 is a bit lacking. There are other bikes out there for that cash that would out-perform the 899 easily. But it's just sooooo beautiful.

I'm getting a red one. Deposit goes down in a month.
