The touring bike holds the track record at the Ridge and also the WMRRA number 1 plate. The R1 came in 3rd.
It all comes down to the rider and how you fit with the bike. Ride the R1 and see which feels more natural to you.

What's wrong with the your current 1199 as your track bike? Some of us here track them and all is well. Plus it's just an old shit box so when you crash it won't matter!

My suspension is stock set up for about 175 lb rider. Im 225 without gear. Right there to keep both is 6k. If I sell both I'm about at cost of a new bike.
I want the v4 but I want an R. Next year the R comes out. I'll wait till the following year. To get it after the hoopla you can get deals or a used one. I wont make the same mistake with Ducati twice.
I don't remember the exact price, but the 15,000 service on my 1199 was around $1,000.

thats what i really want to do but im nearing the 15k service and i am no way paying ducati for a 3k dollar service. 1000 dollars i keep it i will have to look into it much more. i am being told its 24 book hours for the service. at 135 an hour thats 3240 and thats out of the question. id rather buy a new bike then get ripped off.
instead of guessing i will call the dealer and report back.

See if you can find an independent mechanic that works on them. The one local to me is significantly less than the dealer, and actually knows what he is doing.

it all comes down to this. do you keep a 6 year old bike that you can get decent money for and add a few bucks to it and get the latest and greatest. with selling my track bike and trading in the panigale im at the price of a new r1 anyway give or take.

No. It all comes down to what you want. Your ambivalence is in fact ridiculous. You will have great time riding any superbike of the past decade and beyond. You will spend the money on whatever you fancy or think is not up to the standard your skills demand You don't wanna be reasonable do you? It is about purchasing a toy. Make up your mind!
