Beautiful bikes man I love it! I’m surprised that you don’t have a 1290 Super Duke on that list. The v twin is amazing! I have a new Street Fighter on the way and I’m really hoping she has the grunt of my SD and more.

Thx man. I’ve been watching all the recent reviews on the 2020 Super Duke. It is tempting for sure. I’ve always liked that bike!

Yeah the2020 looks awesome! Mine is a 2016 loaded with the full Rottweiler treatment. I added the full air intake, volicity stacks, custom tune with the full AKR ti system and then last winter added the BST Rapid Tec rims. The wheels save 17 lbs alone. The I set the suspension out and had cartridges added and revalved the rear and damn is she a beast! I ordered the new V4 Street Fighter because I loved the V4 motor so much in my Speciale, I'm hoping they moved the torque curve real low like the SD is and if so she'll be a winner for sure.

Yeah the motor is amazing. So smooth and a shit ton of power. I love riding her at the track because it’s so much smoother than my 1299. So t get me wrong the 1299 is like an older muscle car... more raw whereas the V4 is much more refined. I like them both a lot and if they move the torque curve lower like it needs to be it will be a fantastic bike for sure!

With traction control and wheelie control dialed down on your V4 Panigale, does the bike like to wheelie?

my 1299 feels like it wants to rip my skin offunder full acceleration, is the V4 as brutally strong feeling?

I’m in love with the look of the 2020 models but haven’t had a chance to test drive yet

Hey folks. I've got the Streetfighter on order which I'm being told arrives in April which will be replacing the Monster R, so that will be leaving the stable at some point in the next couple of months. Amazing bike. Loves to wheelie and a complete hooligan. Currently has 4,500 miles. Termi, new tires, LED turn signals, Tail tidy, carbon rear hugger, heat shield and heel guards, heated grips and quickshifter. Listing for $13K which feels at the low end of market, but would sell here for less. ;). Up in the classified too if anyone's interested. cheers!

OH man!! I would confidently buy a bike from him. I wish I could.

It hits hard in the upper revs but down low my 1299 feel much more raw if that makes sense. the V4 is more refine. On the track I'm faster with the 4V but on the street the 1299 is a bit more fun IMO. But if they moved the torque lower in the engine curve it will be amazon on the Street fighter.
