FASTEST DS BIKE EVER?
« on: October 24, 2013, 09:48:30 am »
Not sure if this has been posted here already, but this just might be the fastest DS bike ever.

Wouldn't like to do a long trip in that seating position, but would be fun to rip up a few trails here and there!

Heres the link where I stole the pics from: http://hiconsumption.com/2013/10/ducati-1199-panigale-terracorsa-off-road-superbike/











2004 & 2008 Yamaha BWS
2016 - KTM 690 Duke
2004 - BMW F650GS
2013 - R1200GS LC

The riding posture on that bike will lead to a prang sooner or later, otherwise I like the idea. :sip:

mmmm, bikes, guns and beer; always a good combo  :drunken_smilie:

Seems like a waste of a good Ducati; reckon any proper DS bike would show this thing a clean set of heels on those forest tracks.

Sure looks good though.

vely nice  :drif: I waaaaant one.

But riding that thing on dirt roads is going to let you fall at some stage. looks more like a superbike  :deal: You are going to strugle doing slow technical riding leaning forward like that.
I think that is just one of those models that make one very excited to look at and to say i want one  :thumleft: :biggrin:
uhhh yes doctor, i know im adicted.....

I am waiting for someone to post a pic of the Yamaha R1 that the Frenchman toured Africa with. Goodbye panniekalie.
