I Ride: 2012 Ducati 1199 Base and 2005 Ducati 749
MCN stated 1199R doesnt feel different enough

"As a piece of exotica, itís worth every penny, if youíre lucky enough to have the cash Ė itís beautiful, exciting and involving. The chassis and engine mods will be a must for top teams in superbike and superstock, too, but the R doesnít feel different enough to warrant trading up from your Panigale S or Tricolore."

Check out our full report and video in next weekís MCN.

it states that it is not different enough to trade in an S or Tri... that is a financial decision.. and again speaks so much of the level of the S..

Is the S better value/performing than a base? I dont think so personally.

I agree... there's not $3K difference between the two let alone the $5K that it actually is.

No, same bike, just easer to adjust with all those electronic gadgets. But we let the S/Tris think they are better, they typically have bigger egos to feed
