Triumph street triple v Ducatti 848

My Wife wants to sell her hornet and  get a new bike but she does not want to ride anything above 700, so i said she could have my Daytona wich she accepted but this has left me with a dilemma. The only two bikes i would consider buying at the moment are the street triple and the 848 so guys help me out here and help me choose my new bike give me reasons why and why not for both bikes:shock::shock::shock:

conundrum

Nice one to be in...... personally I would go for the Ducati  (only one "T"  :winkie:)  They got soul. Though if you've never ridden a duke before, it may come as a bit of a shock....  persevere for a little while though, and it'll get right under your skin. My 900ss did........  :upset:

That's

IMHO the best way to choose a bike, does not always work out but at least you can say "been there and done it".

Hope it all works out well for you both.
