The problem with having a fast, powerful and successful big brother is that he casts a very large shadow (Ralph and Michael Schumacher come to mind). Ducati 748 had the same problem with its famous 916 Superbike brother. In spite of handsome looks and great components the bike never lived up to expectations and wasn’t a good match for Japanese 600 in line fours. Ducati tried with S and R models and marginally improved the bike but that was still not enough. So here we are now, nearly ten years after the production ended and you’ve got a spare Ducati 748S.
