When 30K isn't too much

Great pics and article on the almighty 1199R test at COTA Begs the question is this too much bike for the street/everyday rider, is there even such a thing and would you commute to work on it lol. Last pic - $480,000 worth of Ducs give or take 1

lol, wonder if they would notice one missing just saying :P interesting about the exhaust" As though to emphasize its track-oriented persona, the R version ships with a separate, full Termignoni race exhaust in its own crate, in case you wish to use the louder, law enforcement-unfriendly pipes at your local circuit."

simply gorgeous. If you have the money and have the knowledge to respect and cherish a bike like that then yea 30K is definitely worth it. Hell if i had the funds to buy a 30k bike i would too.

I used to have a Ducati before I purchased my 600rr. They're nice bikes don't get me wrong, just not the type for me. I ride way too much and rack up the miles, I would only have one again if it was just a fun only bike on the side. Before that happens though I need to run into some more money because the upkeep on those can get expensive!

What Duc did you have? and yes from what ive heard it doesn't make the best daily rider or commuter, and im sure the cost for upkeep is on the high side. The 1199 and 848evo for that matter are dead sexy bikes though, the evo or perhaps baby pan are still on my short list, that being said the new CBR1K would prob be the better choice :P

It was nice to see them release a $30K R rather than another at $40K. Less goodies, but still a hell of a bike.

I'd rather buy a used Ferrari 308 or 348 with that much cash. I would also much rather build a bike too, anyone with enough money can go buy something. Building a personalized bike is waaaaay cooler in my opinion, especially with 30k.

I don't care if you agree though. I would just be personally more impressed by something like this for an example. Nobody else has one and you cannot just go out and buy it... I see ducati's in our shop all the time, it's never as impressive when thousands have the same exact bike.

I see your point for sure, the 1199R beside someone who hand built something themselves would most def be more impressive. That being said im not sure exactly the numbers but im sure its LOW re how many R's will be built. Also that pic you posted, whats the deal w that bike, wow!

you mean Single Sided Swingarm,
From Wiki


A single-sided swingarm is a type of swingarm which lies along only one side of the rear wheel, allowing the rear wheel to be mounted like a car wheel (unlike the conventional motorcycle double-sided swingarm). Single-sided swingarms are traditionally found on small motorcycles or scooters, where a robust chain case doubles as the swingarm linking the engine and rear wheel. Single-sided swingarms need to be much stiffer than the double-sided versions, to accommodate the extra torsional forces, and as a result, they are usually heavier than double-sided arms. Having a single mounting point guarantees proper wheel alignment.[citation needed]
Single-sided swingarms date from at least the late 1940s. In 1948 the Imme R100 produced by Norbert Riedel of Germany had both a single-sided front wheel suspension as well as a single-sided rear swingarm that doubled as the exhaust pipe.[2] Later in 1950, Moto Guzzi introduced the Galetto, a large-wheel step-through scooter. In 1980, BMW introduced its first single-sided swingarm on the R80G/S, the "Mono-lever", which was superseded by the "Para-lever" used currently. Honda currently features this style of swingarm on the Honda VFR. Ducati has created several models featuring these swingarms, most notably the Massimo Tamburini-designed 916 series. While they abandoned this style for the 999, they returned to it for the 1098 superbike in 2007, and it survives in the current Ducati 1199 and 848evo. The Triumph Sprint ST also features a single-sided swingarm.[3]
The advantages of single-sided swingarms are (i) that it simplifies rear-wheel removal, which now involves merely undoing perhaps a single nut and then pulling the wheel off the axle shaft. Also, (ii) (on a non-shaft drive bike) a single-sided swingarm can enable the rear chain sprocket to be separate from the wheel itself. This feature allows a full-enclosed oil-bath final-drive chain, but whereas scooters have always used this advantage, large motorcycles rarely do, even though their chains would benefit from such protection. A further advantage, (iii) is that a single-sided swingarm gives a fashionable "clean" appearance to the bike's rear.
