1199 S or 1299 thatís is the question

Iím new on this forum, I figured Iíd ask some questions before making a purchase on my new(used) bike. Iím looking a a few bikes that are local, one being a 2014 1199 S with 1600 miles that looks brand new, another is 2016 1299 on EBay with 1100 miles. Both owners want about $15k, would you rather the 1199 S or standard 1299?

I vote 1299 just for the motor and DQS up and down.

1299. I was in your boat, chose the 1299. Love the extra torque and up an down blipper.

Depends the sort of riding you prefer doing as well i guess.

Judging from this forum and in general, i think the 1299 is more reliable... That is MY personal opinion.

Many will disagree, but I think the 1299 was a step too far for the V twin(L twin).

So the 1299 matches revs on down shift? This is the first Iíve considered, Iíve been looking for the 1199 S and stumbled across this 1299. Im going to let things play out and see which I end up with. There is a 1199R on EBay the really has my interest as well.

1299 any day of the week, month or year. I've had both and in my opinion the 1299 is a much better bike and more characteristic of the Ducati riding experience with much more low down torque.

1199R is a different beast and from what I've read from others reports doesn't make for the most friendly of road bikes.

Try to ride both the 1199/1299 and make your own mind up.

Get the 1299. The extra torque is very noticeable and the better DQS make it worth it.
