1299 standard or 1199s

Looking to upgrade from 1098s to pinagale. I have option on the 2015 1299 abs or 2014 1199s. What is the right choice?

I had an 1199S and now have a 1299 base. I like the 1299 base better. The main thing for me is the 1299 has more torque. It feels stronger on the low end and mid range.

Most mortals cannot handle most of the power that is gained with the 1299 upgrade.


But the ohlins suspension does give you added confidence that will often roll right around those without it, despite any power increase.


With added power one should want the upgrade suspension to go with it.


The weak link is not the power.

Come up to NC 9 and I'll prove you wrong, the Base fork is very good and the shock is easily swapped

i'd go with the 1299,
the gain in power were just a minor thing, as 1199 already pretty brutally fast
the 1299 is EASIER to ride fast, by a good margin, i have only done one track day this year on the 1299 and i cant tell you how much fun/satisfied i am/have compared to last season on the 1199
1299 platform is improved greatly, so you can extract more performance out of it
Thanks from Chaotic

i wouldnt call the the Base 's suspension a weak link, sure Ohlin is better, but keep in mind the S doesnt have the top shelf Ohlin, they are better, but by a small margin, this translate to a more compliant ride on the street,
on the track, i doubt that you can have the advantage on the S over the Base

Unless you are on a budget, go with the 1299.

Pro 1199: Lighter wheels and better suspension.
Pro 1299: More power and better electronic aids.

My vote is for a 1299 as well, better electronics. Test ride both, you will ultimately make the decision.

Go with the 1299. I was in the same boat. The throttle blip for downshifting pwns! You'll love it!

Lots of advice with no knowledge of how he rides. Does he track the bike, just street etc. this debate comes down to which gives you a bigger thrill, tracking the bike for lap times or feeling brutal acceleration and mid range torque? Answer that question.

BTW, somebody says he's faster on the track with the 1299. It will be a very rare rider who will be able to use all the power on the track to improve lap times and it will only matter if you race competitively. One second a lap is big if you are racing competitively. But one second a lap doesn't much change the thrill doing track days.

If you don't believe me, study track times for liter bikes versus 600's. Most riders will be within one second per lap on a 600 despite having 40 less horsepower.

BTW, the answer to me is a no brainier. Go with the 1299. I don't believe in buying yesterday's technology.
