That's like asking if a Honda is better than a Bugatti. It's just silly.1098s all the way.

I have never owned a ducati, but I do currently own an 01 R1. over the years I have had a few different bikes and I must say that the R1 is by far the best I have owned. I have had it for 4 years now and am the second owner. It currently has 14000 miles on it and the only issue I have had with it, is I just blew out the clutch today. Other than that it has been a dream. Hope this helpsStoneez

Yamaha will be less expensive to maintain in the long run. I met a guy with one who had over 60,000 miles on his bike and it had given him no real trouble other than replacement of tires, battery, etc. I'd go Yamaha over the exotic Ducati.
