How many will buy a 1299 twin instead of new V4?

Just curious as to whether people will run out and buy a new 1299 twin before they are gone because you don't want to get the new V4. I have a five year old 1199 that I love. At this point in my life, and owning two other bikes that I put more miles on I really don't plan to upgrade it. But for a killer deal on a 1299 twin I might.

Have a 1199S, and on the fence for the v4 at the moment, I want to wait and see the V4R as well before i make any decision on that. I am happy enough with the 1199, and have ridden a 1299S and see that it is better in many ways, but not enough to make me want to trade from a 1199 to 1299.

I grabbed up my 2017 Panni S this weekend. It’s the last V twin and it’s what I wanted. Will it become collectible? I don’t care
Thanks from duc, Lisjak and jjsC6

I will probably buy a V4 in a year or so. I really want one, I want $10,000,000 but I ant going to get it buying every new model pani that comes out.

I was riding with Alessandro Valia ,(not name dropping) a week ago and he explained what he liked about the bike, (I kind of took his word, as he was one of the main development riders). He basically said the bike holds a line way better and the GP electronics make backing it in or drifting corners effortless. Overall it is more compliant and less exhausting to ride.
He also said the overall power band is better, (fuck @ 226Bhp it should be).

It does everything better than the previous generation does. The problem is I don't. I am nowhere near the limit of my 1299. I got to see the limit last week with Valia....I should probably say I got to watch him ride while being on the track...lol. The 1299 is still fucking amazing. So I will keep my bike and wait for the rest of the aftermarket world catch up with this bike, which may take a year.

Ducati definitely has a winner. They are also the best in the industry at making people part with money..

I watched the Model Intro yesterday and like the look of the V4, not quite as much as my 1299S, but would buy one if I had money to burn.

Although it's probably the next step up from my 1299S, I know I could not explore the new performance in the V4 as the 1299S is beyond my capability.

I think it's the right way to go for Ducati, but I won't be trading in my 1299S.

I also don't think it will make the 1299's any more desirable.

I just wish they had come up with a new name for it.

HP to the crank and BHP is the same

It is my understanding BHP = brake horsepower. The rating of horsepower at the crankshaft. (engines power). Please correct if I am wrong.

i have a 2012 1199 s and made it into a carbon tricolore. i also made the s basically an R before the R came out. not making the same mistake twice.

here is my plan. 1 wait. i will get the r version when it comes out the second year it comes out. i am guessing about 3 years from now. make the 1199 my track bike have the v4 .

happy with that plus im paying for jet skis right now
Thanks from youngR and Sherpa23
