I will be picking up the FE. I think I'll wait a year to see how the V4 fares, see how the budget goes, and then perhaps add a V4. I am impressed with them so far.

Me too.

I've got enough payments left on my 1299 to help keep my mind off of the new V4 anyways.

In any event, it's important to keep in mind that this is the FIRST rendition of this new era. The V4 will only get better as time goes on...waiters won't be losers.

I just bought a new 1299s like 2 months ago set up with a 5yr payment plan O.O I chose to go with the 1299 because I didn't like the looks of the new v4 from the leaked photos and I also enjoy riding with torque, but don't get me wrong I would still like a v4 in 5 years.... What NW1299 just said is the same thought that came across my mind. Even though the v4 platform is taken from the moto GP engine it probably is still going to be put under the knife for years to come and waiters will for sure be winners as refected to the 1199 vs 1299.... only time will tell though! It might just be an instant hammah and they don't touch anything for 6 years..
Thanks from NW1299

I will be paying off R next month. But I plan to just save $, wait few years and see what comes out from Ducati i.e. R, Desmo RR, SL.

Also, after Ducati took a big step (again), other manufacturers may come out with something to compete like BMW, Aprilia? (doubt it), Honda (NOPE), Yamaha (maybe) in few years.

I had a V4 Priller RSV4RR and after 1500 miles I got rid of it. Great bike but I wanted the big V Twin sound and feel. It just did not excite me. On the first ride of the 1299 I realized I made the right choice to get back to the twin. The V4 on the Ducati will be twin pulse so it should sound and feel like a twin. The Priller was a screamer engine. Guess we find out as the reviews come in.

I'm told that the V4 will be easier to ride than the 1299? While I was at the dealer sorting my water leak out both technicians said the 1299 is not the easiest bike to master.
I'm a middle of the road type of rider with exp in 1litre Jap bikes and do find the 1299 hard to ride fast, if the V4 is easier it may be a winner for us amatures

For riding in traffic and around town the RSV4 was easier to move around. Four little pistons with an equal firing order is easier to modulate over two big ones firing off 180 apart. But that’s part of the fun, learning the Big twin engine.

I love the 1299 and certainly agree that it is more difficult to ride fast then a four. Once you begin to scrape the surface of what it can do it is very fast and very satisfying to ride.
I still love mine and she'll be sadly missed but my wallet doesn't have the firepower to own both. . The v4 better be good
