"The Special" is only $60k+orcs.

The 1299 SL, while as drool worthy as it is, not worth $160K (unless you rich and moonwalk your way into the dealer)

You could find an old WSBK for that....
My mistake, I thought able duc was referring to the 1199SL for sale here.

For $160k, I'd definitely prefer old WSBK, especially if it was ex-Bayliss

These prices or maybe the high prices of the V4 are definitely making me look at a "used" 1199SL.

Question: is anyone concerned with out of warranty issues? I would assume a 2014 SL doesn't have a warranty anymore.

Where if I go V4S, I can breath easy knowing I am somewhat covered.

The V4 might be an amazing bike, but I think the 1199/1299 look way better.

I am thinking of waiting to see what the 2019 V4 looks like. And/or see what the 2019 BMW S1000RR is all about? Or just pick up a 1199SL. But my other issue with me and the SL is that I will put lots of mileage on it.

Isn't that the point? Your comment makes it seem as if you're looking at it from an investment/future resale point which doesn't make any sense. If you wanna make it a garage queen, that's kind of pointless too. Buy whatever bike and ride it. That's the point. Just hope that it is better protected than your hp4 that got stolen n you're good. That should be your only concern.

Oh ya. Ended up buying a house so my bikes were safer. :) put 34k on my first HP4. 44k on my current HP4. 15k on my DRZ. And I only ride every other week.

I can see myself putting lots of amazing miles on the SL

Getting a bike that has an Msrp of $65k with almost no miles for the same price as a v4 which will be old news in a year or two seems like a no brainer!
