Among the Ducati, the styling of the car seems to be kind of lame. However, its just to sad that the speed performance of the bike is not that great and the engine is less powerful.

The boost of 6 hp in the engine is quite impressive for a bike. The power output of the vehicle is quite amazing. I bet this ride can boost in the road.

Oh yes! I have seen a lot of super model have posed for this brand! And I have to say that aside from the awesome speed of this bike, its platform is great as well.

The rear wheels look so weird for me. But I like its composition, the body color and surely a winner off the road.

Not hard but remember they’re after the ultimate perfection :P And a thin rear seat provides great rear-end feedback on a track or when running your favorite twistiest.
