Question Ducati Superleggera versus Desmosedici

You can only choose one... the Ducati 1199 Superleggera or the Ducati Desmosedici RR?

Which Ducati would you choose and why?

Ducati Desmosedici RR

SL for me, don't get me wrong I love the desmo but there is something that gets me about the 1199, the SL is the most extreme version of it. The electronics are a huge upgrade and the weight savings win me over. Although if someone handed me the keys to a desmo I wouldn't say no.

I have a Panigale already. Sure it is nowhere near that of an SL (this debate has been beaten to death so no need to go there) but it still is a Panigale. I don't have a Desmo, which is 100% different. Therefore, Desmo it is. If I didn't own a Panigale, SL would be the vote.

Must be something with the white owners as I am with you on this one!!!

However SL if I did not own a Panigale.

SL for sure.
Love the Desmo but for me with that much power all the electronics are something I want.
I do some track days but I would be to put it lightly a bit timid to take the Desmo on the track.

I always wished the 1199 had been a V4. So for me, the Desmo is the one.

Who would win in a straight line race? v-twin or v4?

I'm going to have to go with the SL. I love my R, but the SL just takes the 1199 to another level.
