    Personally I don't like either, there are many better options out there.

    I would say the first one, but it depends whether you like branding etc

    I personally dislike the heavy branding on most riding jackets, so I would go with the first one.

    I like the first one considerably better. However, when I see the first think I think of is Italy (colors and order is spot on)... so I personally would feel a little uncomfortable rockin that jacket unless I had some sort of tie to Italy or its culture. It would feel a little fakeed for me to wear it otherwise.

    I kind of want the second one because it goes with my bike, but I wouldn't get it because I don't want to be that guy who wears all the matching stuff with his bike. The first one looks good to me though. There's also a perfed leather/textile one I've been eyeing... I really want a cooler looking hot weather jacket. My Vanson is hellish on hot days.

    The bike between his legs would be the tie, since it's Italian.

    If you're deadset on those two, the first one's better, otherwise i'd go with one of these:
    http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ed-Jacket.aspx
    http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com...ex-Jacket.aspx

    There might be too much branding for your tastes, but I think the white jacket would look pretty good with a white Duc, unless you lowside on in(please don't). I wish i had the cash for a 1099. [​IMG]

    I was at the dealer this past weekend checking out the 1098s, and it is very tempting but at this point not the smartest purchase I should be making... Someday though.

    I really don't like either one to be honest.

    agreed. if you must get one of these, get the first. if you have other options, definitely take them.....there's plenty of options out there.

    Ducatis are mean bikes.

    ducati's are slow.

    If you need 180 hp to catch up in the straights because you can't corner then it might be slow.

    hot bike. I don't like either jacket, you should get a Dainese branded Dainese. I'm partial to the Santa Monica, the fit, particularly over the arms, is unreal. Like J said, Ducati jacket on a Ducati bike is really matchy matchy, not to mention yuppie city.
