Minor details, but he ran at least a 1:35.xx, as the Circuit record (racing not pole) is 1'31.171. Extremely impressive either way.

I am looking forward to reviews of the base V4 hoping it will be good enough to convince me I don't need an S...

It's a hard thing because every year whomever makes a new bike has the best bike ever made. For a year at least until another bike is out. It's worse than computer tech or I phones lol.

I still want one though, although I often wonder if the journalists are paid to gloat.

Yeah I am looking forward to the new BMW launch to see how it stacks up.

And I don't think they are paid directly to gloat, but if you throw stones it decreases the likelihood you'll be invited back again next time. It benefits everyone to say nice things...

I Ride: 2014 Panigale R (sold)
impressive stats and specs and looks to be better ergos than the v2, but it is just so aesthetically unappealing and cheap looking. here's hoping they upgrade the looks for the r and/or 2.0 iteration.
Thanks from Macattack

I sold my 1199 a couple years ago. Thought I was too crusty for a sportbike of its caliber.

The V4 has me itching. Badly. Started watching all the reviews last night. Certainly seems like the next leap in motorcycle technology and control.

Anyone want to buy a Triumph Tiger 800?? lol.
