used to have a 999R ducati for 10 years and turned it to an R6!

lighter and more usable power, is my first thoughts

Re: new r6 2009 owner

the bike is amazing especially in our small, twisty and technical track in Cyprus!
in terms of weight and fast chassis is great! once you learn to keep the revs up is gonna be even more fast!.

for the moment i took it in 2 track days and now i'm in the learning curve of chassis setup on this bike!

a lot of guys have the r6's anyway so it wont be an unknown territory for me to discover

i was faster with my 999r but it was 5 years ago and i was in better shape. the issue with the 999r was that it was a serious race bike that you didn't enjoy when you were not in the mood to brake the timer!
