More torque, no slipper clutch and it is a really great motorcycle....I spend almost every weekend at the race track so for me the better turning R. Hope that helps.

And no one is offended :-) Ride on!
Iím in Brea, which track you go mostly? Perhaps ACS? If so, Let me know next time, would be interested to exchange few Ducati notes with you (mainly taking note....&#128514.

1290 Superdukes are fantastic road bikes, I have one as well as a V4S. Stump pulling grunt and wheelies like anything, yet can be ridden docilely in heavy city traffic no problem. I commute on mine and have the V4S mostly for the track. Good times !

@TsaiCo I go to ACS only for racing with WERA. I go to Buttonwillow most often but I go to pretty much every track in CA.

@TsaiCo, for racing I have switched to Dunlop b/c of MotoAmerica BUT I prefer Pirelli and run them on all my other bikes.

I will likely switch back when the new WSBK 125/70 and 200/65 tires are readily available.
