Advice on 1199S Purchase?

Hi everyone,

I am new to the forum and Ducati ownership but it has been a dream bike of mine for years. I recently moved to SoCal and decided it was time. Found a 2014 1199 Panigale S with ~10.5k miles. It has all the mods I am looking for (akro exhaust, adj rearsets) just trying to figure out whats a good price to buy it for. Its listed for just over 14k but I feel like that is high.

Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Good service history is essential and when is the next one due? When were the forks serviced last? Those things will add to the cost of ownership unless you do your own. Check the lock stops/steering stops for damage and valve cover leaks, forks, chain and sprockets etc.

A good Pani is an exotic amazing thing!

Thanks! I will look into that stuff for sure. Pricing wise do you have any input on what I should be paying for an 1199 with this mileage?

That seems high. Last fall, I paid $11k for a 2014 1199 Panigale S with 2000 miles. It was listed for $13,500. While I think I got a really great deal from a guy who was in a hurry to sell before winter, I also think you can find lower mileage examples for under $13k.

I'd have to agree. I just bought a 2014 S (5k miles, full termi, rizoma rearsets) and paid 12k. Probably better deals out there. But trust in the seller is worth something too of course

Just for reference, this is the bike:

I was thinking if I could get it for 11.5k I would be happy. I am just struggling to find any 1199 S for sale right now.

That has some nice upgrades on it, 11.5k from what they're asking is a big discount

Go for it and get them to service it, fluids and put a screw in the front fairing!

In the end a few thousand difference in purchase price become irrelevant. I never plan on recovering or making a profit on vehicles although plenty of people do. My philosophy is always get the best example you can afford or not quite afford. On a Panigale a few K will never buy back low mileage and a good owner plus service history. If you like the bike (blacks not my cup of tea and may make it harder to sell) just buy it. Try making an offer because cash is king otherwise wait and a better one will come down the pike soon enough

That bike looks to have the Akra system too. That's a nice system and the same I have on mine. I spent months looking for mine. Hard budget of $12k. I ideally wanted an S but would take a standard if it had goodies on it. Most bikes within my budget were 2012 models, countrywide search as well. Ended up finding a local 2014 standard with full Akra system, tune, some CF goodies and Anniversario body kit ordered from Apex in Italy. The seller wanted $14,000 but I managed to get it for $12k. Don't jump on the first good bike you see, be patient. It's worth the wait.

Advice on an 1199 purchase.. .? Save up and buy a 1299, the extra 100cc makes a massive difference to the low end grunt. The power delivery on the 1199 is more like an IL4 and needs to be revved to get the best out of it, and thats not really what a twin is about, at least not for me.

Ive had both and remember being distinctly disappointed and underwhelmed on my first ride on the 1199 but smiling the all the way on the 1299.
