I Ride: 2015 Panigale 1299
I have the base 1299 and have done lots and lots of mods to it. All cosmetic with the exception of the steering damper exhaust, rear sets, doing a 520 conversion now and a 41 tooth sprocket and rapid bike. Within the next few weeks Ill be doing the front and rear suspension. Did lot of mods to my 2015 S1000R , more than I should have which include a full 2018 Akra system and the 2018 Akra gp can along with rear sets, rapid bike + my tuning , 520 42 tooth conversion and much more. And did lots of mods to my 2016 S100RR. I love the 1299 and will keep it. Love the weird look of the S1000R and enjoy riding it when I want a more relaxed ride. But once I pay off the 2016 S1000RR or paid it down enough Ill either sell it or trade it in for the Ducati V4s or the new 2019 Aprilia RSV4 that they say is coming out. But Im leaning more towards the Ducati V4s. Would love to have the previous generation Ducati sitting next to the new generation Ducati

I Ride: 2016 Ducati Panigale 1299 S
I would not listen to anyone on this thread. Go to a Ducati dealer and ride a V4. These things are not cheap and you donít want to be kicking yourself over making the wrong choice based in someone elseís opinion.

I personally owned a 2010 S1000RR and now have a 1299S. The both vibrate like crazy. 1299S is worse cause U canít eliminate it in the bars. BMW I could. Iíve not been on a V4 but I can demo one today if I want to.

All of these literbikes are simply amazing. Unless you are a pro rider it makes no difference which one you buy. Get the one that feels the best for you and your wallet.

Maybe I got lucky but I never noticed significant vibration in the bars on my 1299, and I have the motoscience mirrors (stock mirrors are hopeless).

No motivation for me to get a V4 for the street, the 1299 is the best streetbike ever made in my book in terms of power delivery. The S1000RR is fun as long as long as you the shriek it, but the 1299 is the king of torque

Oh and I would listen to wilkson, he knows what he's talking about

You don't have to be a pro to feel the difference between a twin and a V4. Its a completely different ride.

Finally got time to visit local dealer today and explore V4s in all of her beautiness. I’ve been hesitating to change my 1299s into it. Never had that before, always the newest has been instantly the coolest.

You know what. I think it might be the game changer for Ducati. But for me? Frankly, I am now a little disappointed. What the hell were they thinking leaving that front frame silver? Plastic stripe is also akward. Front is more aggressive with new intake openings, but from close they are fake with ”big” projection light under leds. Rear light is cool though.

F me. I went there to finally pull the trigger. But I could not. At least I don’t want to trade in 1299s now. Maybe V4s when I can afford to buy it without trading anything in.

I'll be anxious to see the r model. Hopefully it will look the part as well

Let's hope the V4R has a magnesium frame. Gold > silver

I Ride: V4S, 1199R, Supersport S
They're both over my skill grade but 1x99 > V4 emotion-wise imo.

Go with V4 it should more comfortable and you get improved electronics with more parameters and etc. It's engine and exhaust get warm but not as insane like the 1199/1299.
Take both bikes out on a few test rides.
