So how do you like the 1299SL RD16rr?

How does it compare to riding the 1199SL?

I'm just curious lol. Wondering if the carbon swingarm and such make any real noticeable difference.

You can actually take the bike where ever you like . The cooling system is not a complicated thing .
Donít let it get to 120 again you will do a head gasket .

D16RR is a pretty harsh bike to ride on the streets so hardly ever ride it anymore. 1299SL is definately a nicer bike to ride and is similar to the 1199 Tricolore (never had a 1199SL) that I had just with more power and angrier. Favorite bike was my BMW HP4 untill I traded it for the HP4 Race. Am I allowed to say that on a Ducati forum? lol.

The 1299SL has been great - it’s obviously very light, & immediately noticeable as soon as you hop on and start going thru the gears - it’s just all & more of what you’d expect....Ducati has always done that, they always give you more of what makes them so special to begin with....and the 1299SL is no different

I don’t have an 1199SL...”too glossy”....it gets a 2 SunGlasses rating
Thanks from gnance

Not everyone has a Snap-On truck in their backyard, let alone be able to afford Snap-Ons brutal price structure

You sound like someone that buys a new suit or helmet "any time they want"
