Michael Neeves' top five bikes of 2012

Michael Neeves' top five bikes of 2012 | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it

As Senior Road Tester, Michael Neeves is in the envious position of riding a huge range of bikes every year. So we got Neevesy to run through the top five bikes he's ridden in 2012.

1. Ducati Streetfighter 848
 
This has been my long-term test bike this year and I racked up close to 10,000-miles on it in six months. Irode it on trackdays, commuted to work on it, did two 3000-mile European holidays and generally larked about lots....

Ten Best Bikes 2012- Best Cruiser: Ducati Diavel Carbon | Cycle World

Ten Best Bikes 2012- Best Cruiser: Ducati Diavel Carbon | Cycle World | Ductalk Ducati News | Scoop.it
Ten Best Motorcycles of 2012 as chosen by Cycle World. Winner of the Best Cruiser: Ducati Diavel Carbon. Find more Ten Best Bikes at CycleWorld.com.


The Diavel definitely stretches the definition of “cruiser.” Luckily, it stretches it in the preferred direction, with a wickedly fast
 yet perfectly tractable “11-degree” Testastretta Ducati V-Twin housed in a chassis that nicely splits the difference between laid-back and poised-for-action, and that doesn’t bow and scrape for mercy at the first sign of Earth curvature. This one’s bipolar: You can cruise or you can cruise; the Diavel is there for you either way. It’s so fresh that we’re only worried it might be a long time before any new cruiser steps up to depose it. A definite shock to the system that the system needed. For the second year in a row.

Vicki Smith for Ducati.net's insight:

Make sure you click on the story, the photo of the Tsunami Harley (the bike that crossed the ocean in a shipping container) gave an honerable mention to is worth a look if you haven't seen it. Kind of a wonder of the world we think...

I'm not surprised, this bike is fantastic.
