I'd love for there to be a 959 or R, but there is no race class for it (globally), so no need for it.

Looks exactly like the one I have, but without the top triple.

It's sort of like this. It's better to ride a slow bike fast than a fast bike slow, you would have heard that I'm sure.
Have you out ridden your 1299 yet?

Certainly from a HP perspective, that makes sense.

In Australia it would be about $27k which is about $6k more than a stocker and about $3k less than a base 1299.

It's just another way to get something a bit different.
Looks like your paying retail for the extra bits plus a small bit for the exclusivity. These sort of things are never a bargain.

They will have no trouble selling them for sure but to people like us who like to do extra bits themselves it seems not good value.

Then the SE's ancillary accessories on top of the Akra slip-on commands another Aus $3000 over stock.
I think I'll pass.

As an aside, the slip-on is cheap in Oz at AUD $3000 relative to Canada.
In Canada the Slip-on is $4078
AUD/CAN is .9714

As I said probably not for us but they will sell them all.
And in a few years they will be a good buy for someone.
