Default What do you people think of the new Ducati 1098?

its lighter than the Ducati 999 cheaper and better quality i was wondering if i should get it? I can get a Yamaha for cheaper but I'm looking for something better and the ducati is Italian not like the mass produced Japanese crotch-rockets. so should i get the 1098 or not? here is a link to the ducati website

Traditionally, Ducatis require a lot of maintenance and are not reliable in the long run, but I don't have any first hand experience in that, just talking with Ducati guys at bike meets...I admire your aspirations to stand above the crowd...I stand apart from the crowd with my Ninja 500, but the only reason I stand apart is because the crowd doesn't want me with them (just kidding!)
