I don't think you can go with either one. I have only see the HP4 Race in person at the dealership by me and it is absolutely amazing! The amout of work and attention to detail put into these bikes is insane.

The BMW HP4 Race is bad ass - but I’d rather have the SL simply because I like Ducati the most.

I wouldn’t mind seeing Ducati come out with a track-only bike with WSBK caliber suspension, brakes, and a tuned up V4 though.

They do. They're the WSBK RS models available through Ducati Corse. When they do a V4R they will inevitably have an RS version for customer teams and you can buy one of those. Get your checkbook ready and brace your bank account for the destruction.

I'm not sure but I think they are more than that now. The only RS I ever owned, I bought used at the end of the season.

The point is that Ducati already builds exactly what he says he wishes they would build (and has for years). If that's truly what he wants, he can buy one.

@double0

If I recall $84,000.

My Ducati dealer already sold one. They broke it in on the dyno and the owner took it to COTA.

Same bike that requires a full motor service at 3,100 miles.

SL. Easy. Better durability vs a race only engine with race engine service intervals.
