You may remember that when we reviewed the Ducati 999 a few months back we were rather impressed. We didn’t expect a great deal from the S version – after all at a glance all you get is some designer suspension and a couple of Engine: tweaks, so what could be so different?

The 999s looks very similar to the base model. Both are available as single or dual seat versions, both are red and both look better in the flesh than in photos. That’s where it ends, though. The 999s simply oozes quality. I have never seen a bike get so much attention from other people, even when strapped on a trailer on a rainy M25. It is an extraordinarily good looking bike. The Ohlins forks and Rear Suspension: just give it an aura that the base model lacks somehow.
