Konnichiwa from Tokyo
« on: September 02, 2012, 02:19:39 PM »
Hi Everyone,

I'm Niall, living in Tokyo and was a Ducati nut (Have a Multistrada 1200 and an ST4) until I recently rented a CT in Frankfurt and did 1,200kms in 4 days to the Black Forest and Alsace.  This bike is a top quality in every respect, from performance to handling to braking and comfort.  The top build quality is evident from the moment the engine cranks up.  I returned the bike to the rental company in Frankurt determined to buy one!

Unfortumately I've not bought one yet as they (ironically) are a limited production in Japan, with just 100 made and only available in grey (with a Mugen pipe).  I'm trying to pick up a red export model and hopefully will be a proud owner soon!

Niall

Because the Japanese bike market is stagnant.  Seems to be way more scooters than bikes over here these days i.e. cheap transport!

Wasn't aware they manufactured in Italy.  If they are produced out of Japan more likely South America, Thailand…or dare I say it…China, where they also have plants.

That sounds funny ... a japanese bike difficult to buy in Japan ...
It doesn’t matter the fast you go, but the far you arrive ...
