JARVIS and The Rat
You can run but you can’t hide!
Are you trying to tell me 55k miles is a lot for a car or are you impressed that any modern car can make it to 55k?
The Countryman specifically has been rated as one of the most unreliable cars of all time. How many miles does your warranty cover? Better check that.
What makes you think we don’t like the look of the Ducati, specifically the Panigale? It looks fantastic. As far as riding one goes, it’s seriously just not an impressive machine. It’s squishy as hell up until about 3200 rpm, overpriced beyond justifiable reasons, foot-pegs are basically made of ice, a pretty big lack of control at end corner acceleration, about as reliable as a Mini Cooper, and don’t even get me started on the electronics or the price tag for the R version.
Yeah, it looks great though.
Looks like Alex pissed off a bunch of wine sipping Ducati riders.
Gallardo or Supra?
A general rule of thumb is this: if you want to look cool at the red lights and pick up baristas at the local Starbucks, buy a Ducati. If you’re serious about becoming a better rider and want a reliable and, in my opinion, smoother all around motorcycle save yourself the hefty Italian mark up fee, buy a Japanese motorcycle and put the rest towards track days.
