Someone on here has an xxx 1299SL. He bought it new with no miles on it. Not sure what's different about it. If it's cheaper, and someone wants a 1299SL, I don't see why they wouldn't buy it.
It's about 7-8 bhp less without a number........ :D

Well don't tell anyone but I got from a reliable source that they're down 30-40 bhp so that the press guys who rode them wouldn't kill themselves and could write glowingly about amazing they are that they could ride such a powerful bike so well. :D

"Ducati made a masterpieces that just does everything well and is so well sorted out of the box. It's very easy to ride fast."
