Dry roads today, but cold (4C). At last I had a ride on my V4.

I did not look for performance of course (cold + brand new bike & tires), and DTC was on max value. What I can tell for now in comparison to my 1199 :
- engine easier to manage at low rpm ;
- correct torque at low revs, correct power under 6000rpm (looking forward using it at full power !) ;
- chassis seems as easy and agile.

Suspensions are good (some are affraid of the change of brand).





Thanks from DUCENZO, Dingo, maxnne and 3 others

Nice. Interested to hear more about your comparison. I do have a 1199 and wondering what the difference would be compared to the V4.

Just be honest - what do you think about the looks ? I haven't seen the V4 in person but from what I've seen in pics the looks are a step back.

Honestly, on overall details, I prefer the look of the V4 :
- more agressive ;
- more beautiful front look underlined by LED eyebrows, close to the look I gave to my 1199 on racetracks ;
- beautiful rear.

Only detail on which 1199 is better : the exhaust, looking HUGE to me on the V4. But, that is certainly due to Euro 4 requirements. but still, I prefer V4 exhaust than that of GSXR or Panigale 959...
Thanks from cavlino

Guybrush - are you anywhere near La Ciotat? The road between it and Cassis is amazing through the park! Enjoy the bike, it looks great!

Thanks for the pics. Rims and front mudguard I like them more than the “S” ones. Ohlins suspension are badass looking, anyway Showa and Sachs are not so bad looking. I use the bike mostly on track, so no electronics needed on Dampers. I chose the base cause of that, and with the extra money I saved I can buy nix 30, ttx36 and steering damper.

Edit: the red part under the seat is the fuel tank, so close to exhaust pipes.
Thanks from cavlino

thanks for the pic, i ordered the base model as well, shopping around for tail tidy now and already bought the DP LED rear indicator, i love the front mudguard red actually, exhaust will be the last mod as full system akra is about 7K here in australia....

Can't wait to pick up the bike next month and spend time to understand and blend with the bike before bring it to Phillip Island for a good run....
