Thanks GP BIKES Jerry For The Ducati 848!
Okay, so, I own this Ducati 749 Dark. I love it- yet I ride it less than I wish to. There are a few reasons for that one being that I’ve usually another bike in the garage which I’m test reviewing. Another is that I use my KYMCO scooter around town – a lot. The 749 is not an everyday motorcycle – it works well on the track. But then there are its running issues. It’s mostly the computer and immobilizer system. Sometimes it runs, but then at the next turn of the ignition, it doesn’t. I’m anxiety stricken when I reach for the ignition key- will it run or will I be stuck here? Every summer I go back and forth to my special Ducati expert mechanic (GP Bikes) where each time a challenge is resolved until the next one presents itself, usually as early as on the way home. But those are the intricacies of owning a Ducati -though my earlier Ducati’s didn’t behave this way; nor did they run controlled by processors.
