I currently ride the 1199S and test rode the V4S this morning at the launch in Brisbane. Great bike, amazing to ride. I'm a track and road rider, no expert however. The only negative thing which doesn't sound like a negative, is that it felt like I was riding a Japanese bike. Smooth and seamless gear changes and the handling was like I was on an arcade simulator. It just seemed to lack the untamed Ducati feel. Everything seemed perfect which is not the Ducati's I have come to know. The sound didn't impress me, I have heard that the computer is programmed at idle to drop two cylinders to sound like a twin and then when in gear it opens up all four cylinders again (smart)
I will keep my 1199S. Oh and I don't have a spare 40K lying around. It is a weapon though, just seems to lack soul and for this reason I wasn't tempted to purchase. Anyone else have a similar experience?

Quick question? I have the 1299S and I've recently seen a few videos where the words "racing" comes up on the screen when the key is turned to the on position. Mine doesn't say that. Anyone else have that issue? Is there a upload or something?

Racing or Evo Racing will only come up if the Akra upmap is uploaded.
