Not once did I say it's more in any of my posts. Let's get that clear.

You're the one claiming that I said it's more then the Ducati. And I did not say that. I said it's just as expensive. When the HP 4 came out it was the same price as a base 1199.

I like that the BMW is a similar cost to the base Panigale but the bike is comparable to the S. It's definitely awesome value. It's silly not buying the lightweight wheels and uprated electronics package and the problem for me is that I really needed to fit the levers and rear sets to make it work for me and by that time the overall price is getting pretty close to an S anyhow. If you're not sure what's best just get both and sell one if you get bored not that that will happen.

The bmw loaded is 19 the s is 25 if u add rearsets and levers that's 700 tops you're still under 20 the 1299s is 25. So I would assume you would need rearsets and levers cause stock on the 1299 is terrible.

I prefer the stock levers on the Ducatis, they have better feel than even the Ducati Performance ones that I have on my 1199R. I've used a whole bunch of after market levers and none of them compare to the stock ones, I can only guess that it's the metal that is used is cheaper in a lot of the aftermarket ones. I use stock rear sets as well because they work for me plus most of the aftermarket ones are just bling and don't give you very much adjustment. I wouldn't mind the DP ones but they are super expensive and I don't really need them.

The BMW stock levers perform well but I really didn't get on with the position of the levers and the rear sets. On the R1 the stock levers felt good but the rear sets are a very similar position to the BMW which is too far forward for me.

The BMW owes me 18.5k which is about 3k or so less than the S so yeah I guess it's still pretty good value compared to the S. With the extra money spent it looks a bit more desirable now as well so I'm very happy with it, it looked very plain as stock. It's a shame you have had so much trouble with your 1199S as even though it's less powerful than the BMW and R1 I'd still find it hard to choose those bikes over the Ducati for hard road and track riding and it looks way more sexy.

I just couldn't get over the BMW looks and quality. It looks like they had many engineers designing the beast (one for each part) but didn't coordinate the design with each other. Plastic piece on top of another plastic piece. One engineer designed the high beam and another engineer designed the low beam and a dumb as$$ engineer designed the jagged rear brake light that doesn't flow with the bike. Left and right fairings each had seperate engineers. The only great thing the engineers did was designing a light weight crank and gearbox to make that 999 cc engine come to life at the upper range. I wanted to like the bike but I wouldn't pay a dime for it. Its like hooking up with a ugly girl that is good in bed.

Now the R1 is a sexy thing but its boring and dull riding on the streets absolutely nothing down low like is baby brother the R6. Its definitely a track bike only like the r6 that is where the bike shines. at least the 1199 has some grunt down low to have fun in the streets. The 1299 is where its at for the streets and track you get best of both worlds.
