220hp Superleggera 1299 or V4?

Rules are: You can only buy one :-)

Which would you buy, the 220hp Superleggera 1299 or a 220hp Desmo V4?

And what option do you wish they offered?

For me, I ride the twisties in the Catskills, sometimes four times the speed limit, so a light, high torque, high HP Ducati would be ideal. So my vote is for the Superleggera 1299.

The option I would want is the ability to turn off "ride by wire." Don't get me wrong, I still want traction control but I want my right wrist directly connected to the engine rather than software.

For me the Desmo V4 hands down. Hmmm, with all the current gadgets and software the only other one I can think of right now to add would be tire temp monitoring integrated into the dash.
Thanks from rm4two and AmpForE

Other than my PS and Anni my only other Duc was the 998sFE. I like the thinness from the 998 and the Anni. I've sat my behind down on the RSV4 and as nice as it is, I just don't get that same thin feel. I'd have to go with the 1299 SL or 1299R with 220 hp.
Option wise I'd like to be able to switch what my handlebar paddles control on the fly.

you guy really believe that ducati is going to sell you a fucking 220plus hp?
v4? what in the hell are you guy smoking?it bette be the good shit lol
who is going to insurance it? did you guy know the half of the people the put deposit in the panigale dint completed the transaction because of insurance prices?you don't think ducati take in consideration that if the bike is too expense to insurance they can't sell it ?

yes they can play with limited production bike not with the base model.
