I honestly donít care how much easier to ride it is over the 1299. The only way Iíd buy one is if they fixed 2 things. 1) It it as hot as my 1299? 2) More importantly, do the bars vibrate as much as the 1299?
Thanks from Veteran

I might get a used one in a couple of years but the torque curve of the 1299 still towers over the V4, and that's what I use on the street - no need to rev to the moon. With that said, I have no doubt the V4 is a better track weapon and will run faster lap times, likely by a significant margin.

I might add paying $30k for a motorcycle is kind of crazy unless you're rolling in cash, and I'm having too much fun with stocks right now anyway.

Just curious, for those of you that "prefer the torque of the V twin", how often do you pin the throttle just for midrange to utilize "all the torque"? It's not like the v4 has a 600cc torque curve where you'd have to downshift... Just open the throttle slightly more. I know when I do pin the throttle I'm going all the way to redline where the v4 would shine.

Not disagreeing with you, just curious. I love my twin to death and I'm not selling it either.

Very often full throttle. At least between 4 and 7k, over 7k it's hard to use the full torque on country roads with 15/41 final gearing.

I had 1299 with -1 tooth front sprocket. Didn't start making power to 7K...

Not from Valencia, but a real world street ride review. Well... Not really a "review", more like "commentary".
