Ducati 749

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' at netrider.net.au started by Honda Phantom, Aug 22, 2007.

  1. Does anyone on the forums own a Ducati 749? Im looking at buying one but not use what they are like. They look bloody hot, but without having a dealership the deals with Ducati (749) anywhere near me, its hard to know.



    Any thoughts???

  3. There a great bike. Not quite as good looking as a 748, but outstanding as far as design and handling go. There is a good Ducati forum based in the USA which is also very helpful.

  7. Yep I have one, Yellow 749 , most people absolutely love or hate the look of the xx9 series.
    Personally I love it , its a very modern look.
    I have two other friends with 749 / 999 and none of us have ever had any problems with them.
    I never race mine, use it occasionally for commuting, easy bike to ride, lots of torque , well mannered bike.
    If you're ever down Melb way let me know, more than happy to show off my Duke. :grin:

  9. Hi Blackjack, basic service costs me around 300, Majors around 1000 .

    Some people balk at the figures but its money well spent I feel.

    Havent experienced any of the electrical gremlins that some of the older Duke seem to experience.

    Have been tossing up the idea of getting onto the 848 when it gets released but really cant get over the shape of xx9 series.

  11. Mmmmm 749

    i would love to get my hands on a 749 dark, or a yellow 749 or as a matter of fact, any 749

    i reckon they are the shit, they are fantastic, i test rode one of them before i got my daytona.
    only reason why i didnt get one was the cost :(

    sigh

    oh well :D

  12. I sold 2 in a week :grin:

    I had to deliver one to it's new lady owner in Geelong.

    So I rode it there :)

    It is a small bike, too small for me. My shoulder surely felt it.

    Would I buy one.................nope, underpowered for my liking.
