My local dealer just received the new Ducati S4Rs and it's a beauty. 998cc 130 hp engine, ohlins suspension, radial brembo brakes, marchesini wheels and it looks great. Gotta have one, but I have to convince the wife of the benefits of a second bike. Especially, one that makes no common sense. :D

I share your pain. I came within a hair of justifying (to myself) buying the new S2R1000 because it was $5000 less yet it looks essentially identical to the S4R. That thing is drop-dead beautiful, elegant, especially in person and the reviews I've seen have been very positive! I eventually came to my senses (air cooled, few dealers, more engine than I need, old prejudice against Italian engineering, already have a streetfighter-type bike, etc. etc.) and just put racing stripes and bar-end mirrors on my SV650, which is a hoot to ride and for me is more than enough bike as a stablemate to the FJR. I suppose I could sell the SV650....

Right...the S2R 1000 has the same frame and looks essentially identical but with the 1000DS engine (arguably a better engine for the street, but air cooled nevertheless) and downgraded suspension (but still pretty decent Showa and Sachs). MSRP is only $9995. The "downgraded" bike is probably way more than I need for playing in traffic on the streets of Miami! Our twisties are expressway ramps. The S4Rs would be total overkill, but what a bike!!
