Depends what type of handling, etc. you prefer. Ducati's are reknowned for being incredibly stable in turns but not that easy to manhandle into turns in the first place.The Suzi options: the GSXR1000 is kind of theuser friendly muscle bike among the 1000 4's. It's got better lowdown torque and handling over bumps, etc than the Kwaka, Yammy or Honda options.The GSXR750 is a better option than the 1000 though, it's got the manouverability of a 600 with almost the power of a 1000. And it's cheaper.Personally I'm a Suzuki loyalist so I'd get the GSXR750, it's more comfotable to ride than the Ducati and it's easier to play on and handle than the 1000... But that Ducati is so damned sexy.Research it and then test ride both. You'll know what fits you better after taking them for a spin. Always keep in mind what you're going to be using it for as well.

I love my GSXR750 way more responsive than a 600 and more forgiving and nimble than the 1000. The 848 are getting really bad marks as far as the performance that it was said to bring to the table. Here's the head to head on them...http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bxNJ_CGKkYA
