I would personally take the 1199S over the 1299 base. Bren Tuning software update vill solve the jerky midrange and give bottom end rideability...

Get the 1299. There are pros and cons to both, so it isn't as straight forward of a decision as you would hope. But personally, I'd rather start with a better foundation and then mod the suspension/wheels myself.

Another point that wasnt mentioned is that the 1299 has the better geometry over the 1199. But to be fair, you can mod a 1199 to match the geometry of the 1299, so that isn't necessarily a deal-breaker.

My best advice though is wait a little longer and save some more money and then get a 1299S. Best of both worlds!

the 1299 is the best looking motorcycle ever created, and that ever will be created, in the history of the universe....

Personally aesthetics wise, I love how the 1299 has a slightly wider more tougher looking front fairing, how it had a 'nose' under the headlights, and the awesome tail piece with the 2 fins... I think they massaged the 1199 to be just right with the 1299. But overall, they're both beautiful bikes up to subjective preferences.

Actually, the 1299S Anniversario is the best looking motorcycle ever created.


Apart from perhaps last years Honda RCV.. The aero is ruining the look of the MotoGP bikes in my opinion.

All great advice! Thank you all for chiming in. I have been all over the place looking at bikes, a new 959 CORSE, to a used 1199s, haven’t seen the 1299 in person I had no idea they have a different apearance.. I live on Long Island so the weather hasn’t really turned yet, I’m hoping to see a few more bikes for sale soon. Seems quite a few fairly new bikes have had multiple owners, I’d like to find a one owner, “like new” bike for a reasonable price.

Another question for you guys regarding tires. What do you think of 4-5 year old tires on a bike with 1500 miles, should they be changed due to age? I couldn’t run 5 year old tires on my car no matter how new they looked they wouldn’t hook, even a 2 year old drag radial I felt a huge difference in performance.

Yes, you should change 4-5 year old tyres. Definitely.

I went through the same thing last year - 13' 1199R / 17' 1299 / new 959 Corse... I was gunning for the 1199R and 959 Corse, but for me 1299 took the cake and just felt better.
