Trade in + same color + same monthly payments = PV4


But my 1299 is worth nothing to a dealer now and I still love it so I'm OK. I'm happily committed to it for a while. Honestly the Scrambler 1100 and Multi 1260 are the bikes trying to get me into trouble...

The fuel tank on V4 doesn't look fluid.. 1299 shape seems more streamlined even down to the exhaust lines.. I do love Led front and rear lights on the V4. Over all 1299 looks much better.

I really like the looks of my 1299, but the side by side of both, by the pictures, I like the looks of both equally well.

I really want to like the v4 but The predecessor wins in the looks department hands down.
Wife agrees by the way, only she couldn’t tell which one was the latest 😁

I am glad they did not succumb to the latest fashion trend and put the exhaust under the tail. Keeping the weight low as per the original 1199 design is the way to go IMHO.

Moving on from my initial plan of a V4S, and as I have already stripped and rebuilt an 1199 and 1299 to colour match both the frame and swingarm, this bike looks a doddle to change out the frame colour and maybe alleviate it's prominence to the eye, this time colour matching to the swingarm as opposed to the magnesium castings as on my xx99 bikes. Also shortened the number plate holder. Doubtless there will be some version available soon. Still no word on the price of the Akra system. Any ideas JarelJ ?

Can Jarel please answer this. There appears to be quite a difference in the Akra system fitted to the Speciale and to the S model. Take a look at the much slimmer less bulbous exhaust shield on it as opposed to the S model and also the different belly pan. Why is this or have they just fitted slip ons to this S which might explain why it retains the stock heat shield.

Pic of the Akra system. It seems there is a Race version according to MR. This is the version for the S and Base models. This might explain the heat shield difference. Also a lot more room by the rear wheel due to different routeing of the pipes. On the Race version the front header pipes (it seems) are routed directly to the LH silencer . Wonder if this means the Race version is only available with the Speciale?

You can see here the less cluttered Race system and neater smaller heat shield.
