Thanks for the advice. Iím definitely getting one and maybe the S is better for just buying and leaving it alone aside from minor changes. Iíd mainly be riding street.

For what it's worth, I have a base and treat it that way (leave it alone). I intend to track it at some point but it's mostly a bike for the twisties. Base suspension is more than up for that challenge and any other challenge you can think of. Agree with others - get what you want, but unless you're a person who loves to make changes, the base can and will suit your needs.
Thanks from cavlino

Get what you want, but I decided to buy an S for the wheels and suspension, yes itís electronic but it is Ohlins! Also, I donít find myself searching for forged wheels and an Ohlins upgrade like I did on every other cycle I owned. But as others have said, the base suspension is likely more than enough for 95% of us on the rode and probably on the track.

What about the electronics does the base have Slide, wheelie, launch control and all the other benefits of the S?

What is wrong with you guys? LMMFAO you don't have to change a thing on the base model to ride hard street or track that thing !!. I've kept my 1199 bone stock and same on my V4 and will go head to head with someone with the same riding ability and a "better" suspension.

The fact is, if you're asking other folk if you should buy the S over the base means yours not at a level to even appreciate the different in feel and or character.

Especially on the street, even with canyon riding you won't know the different or even what to tweak if you're asking which to buy SMH. Just get the bike in your budget or ball out if you please and have fun man.

That's all !!

I totally agree, get the base and a reputable race exhaust (with a tune/upmap) and you'll dust anything out there !! And if its in the budget get some BSTs and you'll even look better lol

Spot on . I rode my base at the track bone stock itís a reallly capable bike you will never out ride it on the street . Get the S if you like the look of Gold forks thatís the only difference .
