they are completely differant bikes for a start!if you want something that will chuck along in any gear then go for the duke, and R1 is more track race day orientated, they aint that comfirtable, and you'll always be revving the balls of it, trust me its addictivebut if it was me i would definately go for the ducati, the noise from a big v twin, the roaring ofbeat it is just unbeatablebut, ducati aint know for reliability, you can be assured with the R1 it wont break down if looked after well

The R1 cause it costs lessall bikes depreciate in value so its wise to spend less cause you end up losing less moneyplus the upkeep and the parts cause more for the Ducati

The R1 is cheaper, less maintenence, has a much higher horsepower engine and is a lttle more comfortable to ride on the streets. Its known to get away from even the most experienced riders. Don't sneeze while giving it power.The 848 is prestigeous, rarer, has more torque (and arguably, more managable&useable power), and a chassis that is breed for the race track. It also has a repuation as being expensive to maintain (high $ valve adjustments) and rack-like uncomfortable to ride because of the riding position and stiff chassis.
