Don't misunderstand me, I fully get your point. It will make a good rider better, and a top rider even better still. But the average rider, and by that I mean even the average sport bike rider, they are not riding fast enough for the nannies to even kick in.
Agree 100%.

Either one will be fine and will bring you more than enough enjoyment.

The 1299 might be worth a little more in a few years. But other than that, just get whichever one you like better.

If you need displacement and can't shift down on your own then get the base 1299.. if you want a better all round package wheels suspension etc then get the 1199S!

What's funny is that there is literally no information provided by the OP as to his/her riding style, be it track or street etc.

Someone makes a 23 word post and we get 4 pages of people arguing about it.

Internet.

Its hard to say which is the most futile, the endless arguments about specs on this forum, or the number of people who are prepared to by a bike on the biased and rambling recommendations of the inmates.
What the hell happened to having the conviction to buy what "you" want instead of what everyone else tells you is best.

Its getting a little Groundhog Day on here lately.

Go ride and don't worry about it - life is short, ultimately there are infinitely more important matters in life than the "latest and greatest" bike, car, jet ski etc

Internet debates are futile for the most part, the best thing to look for in any debate where scientific evidence is available but varying experiences is a consensus of experts (assuming you can discern who the "experts" really are)

Unfortunately we don't have track times for both bikes using a pool of expert riders, that would settle it. Which is better on the street is impossible to quantify but again the experts (literature) all agree the 1299 is significantly improved over the 1199 and is easier to ride fast

1. That is what these forums are for, discussions such as those. If they bother you, just hit that red X at the top right corner.

2. These bikes are new. There aren't many discussions on new model bikes that aren't mostly hypothetical and based on reviews or specs. The quality and variety of topics will expand once the bikes are a few years old.

I am a Moderator on Gixxer.com; when the all-new '06/'07 600/750 came out. ll of the topics were like these. Aside from the name, that forum looked just like this one when you scroll through thread titles. Fast forward 9 years later and that forum section is full of interesting threads, build projects, discussions on tons of aftermarket parts, review of racing careers, etc. It just takes time.

3. As far as the "Groundhog day" thing, there aren't THAT many parts on these bikes and they don't have THAT many uses.

If we eliminate topics based upon specs, exhausts, race bodywork, suspension, tires, oil brands/changes, chain and sprockets, wheels, horsepower and motor work, fuel type and mpg.....what is left? Of course you are going to see the same shit over and over, there isn't that much to talk about when it comes to sportbikes.
