Duke 800SS

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by Tenoq, May 14, 2005.

  1. Anyone got one? Given the price, the seem to be a real alternative to a 600 supersport - what's the comparison like? I have noted the Duke makes only about half the power, and roughly the same torque. :p Question is, how much slower are they?

    Other comments?
  2. Hi Tenoq, I believe we met on the Nods' Noojee ride a couple of weeks ago.
    Speaking with other owners the 800 is delivering close to what the old 900 used to produce. Having ridden a 600 and 900, the greater torque would make life much easier on longer hauls.
    I know a knowlegable (?) Ducatista with an 800M on the peninsula (Tootgarook) you may be able to talk with if you're interested.
