Numbers aren't everything, but let's take a look....
750 i.e./620 i.e.

Displacement: 748 cc/ 618 cc
BorexStroke: 88x61.5 mm/ 80x61.5 mm
Compression Ratio: 9:1/ 10.7:1
Power: 64HP @ 8750rpm/ 60HP @ 9500 rpm
Torque: 62Nm @ 6500rpm/ 53.3Nm @ 6750rpm
Weight: 394 lbs/ 389 lbs
Seat height: 30.3 in/ 30.3 in

Like you said, everything is almost the same... Off the bat you are down 4HP and almost 10nm of tq. There is a 5lb weight advantage though. I'm guessing that overall, the two bike are pretty close in performace, but the 750 is going to pull the 620 with it's tq advantage. I guess what it comes down to is how much are you willing to pay for 4HP, 10nm of tq, and 5lbs??

The 750 should have a bit more low-end grunt, making it a little friendlier for around-town use, but otherwise there's not much practical difference between them. It's puzzling why Ducati markets two bikes with almost identical specs. Nice Honda you have there.

Thanks PEM
I looked again and the 750 has an oil cooler, could the 620 be retrofited???
anyway I am looking at the Dark versions, and the difference in price is about $2000CAN (witch is about what $20US/images/icons/smile.gif/images/icons/laugh.gif)

I believe the 750 also has that little bikini and it also has dual discs/binders up front. But now that I have gone to the Ducati website the only difference (not only but worthwhile) is the dual discs up front. is the 620s i.e. model available in the US? Hmmm.

I did call over to Las VEGAS HD / Ducati and they said the conversion to dual discs is a nifty $500 dead presidents. They could not find a price for the fairing / bikini. Just some more info.

Yes, you should be able to retrofit an oil cooler. But up in your part of the world you probably don't need one - unless you want it for the looks. /images/icons/wink.gif

I called Terminal Velocity (905-985-8487 -Port Perry Ont. Canada) and the 750ie Dark gets dual disc, oil cooler, and extra 120cc
for 12,175 vs 9995 for the 620ie Dark

PEM just because I live in the North does not mean that we have snow for all 12 months /images/icons/smile.gif/images/icons/smile.gif

I concede there; you probably only get snow for 10 or 11 months out of the year. /images/icons/wink.gif

Since cost vs. performance/features seems to be a significant issue for you, have you considered buying used? I'll bet you can find a good, used 750 or 900 in your price range. The only thing you're giving up is warranty time, and many of them will already have some or all of the mods you would want to do anyway. Just a thought.

Well, since you are currently riding a 13 year old bike, I would suggest that maybe you look into buying a used 750 that will cost you less than a 620ie in the first place. Only a year or two old and it can save you thousands. I myself bought a 2000 750 monster instead of the 620 and I couldn't be more pleased. Or you could really buck up and grab yourself a used 900. I kind of wish I did. So go for the bigger bike. You wont regret it. If you get the smaller one (in Ducati's case the smallest) you will eventually wonder if you made the right move. I say make the right move now and go for more power. Do your background research if you buy used.

SUI....

I was looking at a used 750 (2000) with 11000Km, but the 02 dark was the same price. So it looks like a new bike is in my future.

One shop near me did not order even one single M750 this year because they thought the 620i was so close no-one would want to spend the extra money for the 750.
