I've got both of these in the garage and I can attest to the fact that they are, in fact, torture devices.  Nothing, however, sounds better or feels more visceral.

Fuck, I bet those look and sound beautiful though. Shame Ducati is finished with air cooled motors....

So if you were going to buy a sportbike, would you do an 899 Panigale ($15K), a Triumph 675R (13.5) or just go with an Aprilia RSV4R ($15K).

Given the Aprilia pricing, I just don't understand how the Panigale fits in...

I'd prob do the Panigale. Only disadvantage it has is HP, which doesn't matter as it has more than enough for the street. It's the sexiest and I think the lightest of the 3. Easy choice for me though with my back I don't think I will ever do a sportbike

I just wonder if the RSV4 is the way to go there. Almost as pretty, rarer and small, light enough.

Now that my job search is on I just need to get back to California so I can justify a stable.

what about the agusta f3 800?

I hear MV still hasnt got their shit together as far as fuelling. Lot of really mixed reviews, bikes are either great or really terrible to ride.

I'd pick Aprilia.  The mileage still sucks but it has a bigger gas tank now as well as ABS.  btw: 15k will get you an S1000RR with heated grips as well

The 899 and it's big brother are sex on wheels. That's where my money would be going if I were looking at that class.

15k? damn add a lil more get a S1000RR

if you only has those 3 options, go for the Aprilia. The Ducati has most uncomfortable riding position of all the bikes i'd sit on. My back hurts after 5 minutes. okus the RSV4 handles better than the Panigale. IMO it's a better street bike as well. The bike mainly for street or track?

I feel like all these bikes would be torture racks for anything more than 20 minute track sessions. I'm never buying a bike with clipons.

More just a question - I was surprised at how expensive the Panigale was when you could do just so much better.

As I have stated before in this thread, I would buy a Multistrada 1200 before I bought anything else, that bike is peerless in versatility. For a track bike, I would probably buy a 250 or something since (a) I suck at racing and (b) it would probably teach me better to learn how to hold speed through turns than a larger bike.

Sage advise. I took mine out today for a 300+ mile jaunt.
