I agree really. The 1199 values dropped because apparently the 1299 addressed some of the shortcomings of the 1199 , non ducati'esque power/torque delivery, front end feel ... so it's more street friendly and apparently the last in the line of big twins. Resale / desirability should be very good.

Order the BMW Superbike. It has heated grips and cruise control. Although in the reliability ratings Ducati was one step better than BMW. Go figure.

Despite the great efforts of @johnnyflies and @mark419ny, and the rest of you, I've ordered the bike.

Its due to arrive Friday or Saturday (hopefully Friday )

I'll include pics in the next update along with the various dealer experiences.

Be interested to know how it compares with your poor demo experience.

My biggest gripe is that w/ the 1299, you'll never have great fueling...best you can hope for is passable which makes it an exhausting bike to ride if your not in the mood that day.
I reckon that is rubbish. I never found my bike to have any fuelling problem. In first gear because the gearing was so high, it was a bit hard to ride in traffic sometimes but that was because it was designed to travel at high speeds. I put a 41 tooth sprocket on the back and fixed the dip in the torque with a Tuneboy map and that improved what was already a great bike.

There is nothing wrong with the front end feel of an ohlins equipped 1199.

I don't think anyone should buy a 1299. That way sales will tank, and when they offer unbelievable discounts I'll trade my 1199 for a 1299.

Your welcome

I bet you it isn't as good as a S1kRR, R1 or RSV4 w/ similar mods. OP is looking for 1299 vs arguments.

My fueling is good, but it's not great (Termi, Sprint filter, RB race).
