For me it comes down to money and I'm not willing to spend $8k on the Sicom, I had ceramics on a car of mine that cracked and I would not do it again.



False- these are not even close to the brakes you have used. And why would you need 2 sets of sicom rotors?

Dunno about the 1299, but after 4 sessions on a track like Sonoma, the 1199 DEFINITELY feels heavy, especially compared to 600s prepped for racing!

Perhaps you should also prep it for race as it already weighs in lower than the 600's?

Well, my other follow up post seems to have been moderated.

My R1 weighs 387 pounds wet in street trim, a good deal lighter in track trim. I lost 27 pounds of rotating mass (from stock setup) with the BST wheels, CMC rotors, and various titanium bits. Being that BST wheels weight is in the hub, and not the rim, same with the rotors being closer to the center, that made weight even tighter centered and made those 27 pounds feel even lighter overall.

So no joke on the "heavy" feel of the 1299 S. My R1 felt like riding a 250, and was lighter than most track ready 600s. The 1299 will get there soon enough.
