V4 weight --- EDIT: ~204kg ceritfied weighing
 
I got my V4 yesterday, 100% stock and it weigths 211kg with full tank.

So lets say that it weights 209kg with 90% of fuel --- it is +11kg heavier than in Tech Data!!!

After finding this out I did measure my BMW NineT, Ducati Scrambler Italian Independent, KTM E-XC --- and of course, Scrambler had overweigth +9kg. BMW and KTM were as promised.

EDIT:
I made two other measurements (license plate dismounted, full tank):
1) Measurement by metrology company with certificate - 203kg +-2kg (because they had only scales for 2000kg which have big +-)
2) Measurement by SW500 vehicle scale (0.1% accuracy on load) - 204.5kg

Also interesting fact is that in COC weight is 200kg (not 198 like in User manual).
So finally those numbers are much better :)

I must say that I am little bit disappointed, because weight was an important issue to choose between S1000RR vs V4. They both have pros and cons but I wanted -10kg.

Also I am disappointed about Scramblers weight, because I wanted lighter bike to my wife...

I wondered how they got the weight so low.

does this mean the V4 is 40-45 pounds heavier than the L2

thats more than a cheeseburger or two :D

I would like to know (just out of curiosity) how much the V4 drops when prepared for the track - where weight actually matters.
My 1199 is prepared in a very hobby-racer manner without expensive titanium and carbon bits and pieces and weighs 170kg ready to be ridden.
