What changes for 2017?

Is there any solid info out for possible changes for 2017? I'm considering swapping to a 1299 from my 15 S1000rr. The S is a solid machine but at high altitude it feels much diminished and the excitement factor is leaving me underwhelmed. Starting my research process, lots of good info here. Thx guys.

Is there a reason that you think the 1299 will be less affected by altitude??

My guess is not much, it seems to go in 3 year cycles so the next major update would be 2018.

I'm sure the 1299 will suffer from altitude as well but the mid range torque should feel better on the street. The S still gets after it up here but not until 12k. Id be happy with a new radiator for 2017

for sure euro 5 emission rules in 2018, so look closely to the 959, US excluded

I know Ducati has a "special" 1299 in the works. It is supposed to be a very high end bike, so I am assuming superleggera. Bikes supposed to be released before the end of the year.

The 1299 stomps all over the S1000RR in the midrange - rode them both back to back. It's that broad, galloping spread of power that sold me
