The 1299 Is notbad, punches hard thats what i love about it most.
Its not like most litre bikes where they start pulling hard at say 6k rpm, this pulls like a train from the start.

I've thought about that, if in future they'll have good resale due to being the last of the twins.. I wonder
I think the 1299 in general and the Finale will hold value well, as will my V4 Speciale (first limited V4).. but as for how it rides.... it's literally the best fusion of what makes a Ducati a Ducati and other 4 cylinder bikes... its unique and yet manageable without being sterol like the S1000RR... has soul, but doesn't make you feel like it's trying to shake itself apart like the 2 cylinder ducs I've ridden before.. I have no regrets..

I picked up a new 16 S1000RR exactly two years ago. Nearly 14K miles on it and the only issue I've had is the stock battery was replaced under warranty. All available options for a bit under $16K. I think overall it's better than my R1M, but the R1M does look good.

I'll probably pick up the 2020 when it comes out in a few months, or when the reviews surface. Even fully loaded with the M package I don't think it will be $28K.

You should have an excellent commuter. It does everything well.

Thanks from SJS

Congratulations. I was seeing the same deal a couple of months ago and thought very seriously about trading my 1199 for one. I finally decided to keep the 1199 which is my “third” bike and traded one of my other bikes for a new bike. But that S1000RR sure was tempting.
