Hold on. What’s that flag in your signature bar? 😉I'm simply neutral in my judgement.
I would LOVE to own a Ducati Panigale (if I were young and not plushy) or the (X) Diavel… or even the Monster! Not for brand ownership, but because they are awesome machines! But I do concur on reliability. And maybe it’s a North America vs Italy thing. I watch an Australian YouTuber that says certain brands down there are stellar for customer service, where they are absolute CRAP in the Americas!
Another Canadian YouTuber I watched has a bunch of videos of their HyperMotard, made by ‘The Brand Who Must Not Be Named’. So you can tell how THAT turned out. It’s a recurring theme over here.
