Halo 2, why?

I didn’t want an R which will be a homologation model for WSBK racing duties and fo ethos’s that want to race them.

I wanted a Speciale as a nice V4 road bike for the occasional track day.

I assume they will be very different choices.

Because the Special is just a paint job and a R model is a R model .
Enjoy your bike Iím glad you like it but others will get rid of them to buy a R as Halo had said .

I agree with you. For those that don't track much the regular Panigale with e suspension will serve well. I used to go track often but I've gotten very involved in my church and my weekends are shot.

I've had both Panigale R versions in the past and they are not a joy to ride in the street. I've done it during the ownership but I prefer not to if I have a bike like the Speciale(or S). The e suspension is that good in the street.

For those that want a purpose built track bike... Then the R should be their choice. Or better yet... As some consider a better choice is to buy a base(new or used) and build a track bike... If not restricted by the 1000cc limitation.

What Ducati has done with the V4 model line is that they made a clear distinction between road and track bikes. There will probably not be any V4 Panigales under 1000cc unless it's the R model, at least in the near future, which probably will matter in most regional or club races due to engine cc limitations.
