Hi guys! After selling my Aprilia Tuono a few years back to do some racing, I'm looking at getting another road bike as I'm not racing so much these days. I have been trying to find something that's got some power but ideally not 200bhp with a good electronics package so I can do a couple of track days and go out for a spin with friends on the roads. I had in mind a BMW s1000rr, Triumph street triple or the V4 Tuono. ( The BMW might be a little too much at the moment but iv always loved them ) ideally a European bike. last Friday I manage to finish early from work so I thought I would go to my local triumph dealer (Romford) to take a look at the new 765 street triple which was very nice but just missing that bit of 'fizz' Right next door to Triumph is another bike dealer called Hysides. I know a couple of the guys so thought I would pop in and have a chat. After a while I was shown a 899 Panigale which to be honest never crossed my mind. After looking at it for a couple of seconds I started to dribble. Had a sit on it and then I was it love but memories started to come back from when my dad had his slightly problematic 916 SPS. Little did I know that Ducati has improved somewhat on the electrical front and done away with the timing belts!!! So now the 899 ticks all the boxes I'm on the hunt for a decent low mileage red panigale Hello all!!
