Tell him to get a demo from the BMW group for you to ride, especially if there is no hurry. They can get one to him and you can have an extended ride.

I Ride: V4 Panigale Speciale / S1000RR
I looked at both, rode both.... and as much as I wanted to be a "purist" and ride the 1299.... and as much as it was a lot less money... I ended up with the V4.. IT's everything good about a Ducati and more.

Finally test rode the V4.

Compared to my 1299, the V4 is obviously the better overall bike, much in the same way as how i found the S1000RR was better than the 1299 when I test rode them back to back, before choosing the 1299. The V4 is smoother, found it easier to flick, easier on the wrists and had a more comfortable seating position. I almost forgot how smooth a 4 cylinder was, being able to go around roundabouts in 1st without having to feather the clutch felt amazing lol.

The 1299 thuogh, still puts a bigger smile on me personally, it has alot more torque (bike wants to move when slowly disengaging the clutch lever), a less-linear engine which i love (not a fan of a flat linear power delivery) and aggressive seating position. The thinner seat was also a positive for a short person like me.

I probably would eventually end up going back to a 4 cylinder sometime in the future, eventually I get bored of an engine after spending so many years with one. I do miss the top end pull of a 4 cylinder.

I know them feels bro.

My ego was like take the roundabout faster, what kind of pussy pulls the clutch in, in first to go around a roundabout.
