I Ride: 996 Ducati, soon a Panigale S ABS
Riding any of these bikes to the limit is impossible on the street. That's not the point of owning new technology. Experiencing and learning the function of the quick shift, the riding modes, the traction control are all exciting prospects to me. Also, what percentage of time is riding the bike? I enjoy looking at my bikes while in my viewing, man space area as a piece of art almost as much as riding. I'm finding on this and other Ducati forum sites that the owners of the 1098 and 1198's are more prone to not liking the 1199. They love their bikes and may be somewhat biased since the Panigale is rendering the previous models obsolete.

Don't forget the Tri has the titanium half exhaust system.

I Ride: Ducati 1198, Ducati 848
I think I will go with the standard 1198. Not sure about ABS tho. I started on an 848 and after 5000 miles moved on to an 1198. Having the traction control on the standard 1199 is already an improvement for me since my 1198 is an 2009. I only have 2 seasons of riding under my belt so at the risk of sounding naive, what are the situations that ABS will be worth adding on? I assume it's just like a car when you make sudden stops?

Given my riding ability and skill I think the standard will suit me just fine, I just wish it came with the LED lights too :/

Riding on the street ABS can save your bacon in emergency situations or in low traction areas or environments.

I think it's probably an important addition for someone with two seasons of riding experience moving to a bike that ranks among the worlds most powerful.

Thanks for the info regarding ABS. Yes I've only once felt the back end come loose and it was pretty scary. I haven't done any track days and am still building up riding experience. I have 7500 riding miles between the 848 and 1198 so yes I agree I could benefit from as much safety equipment as possible.

I really hope they have at least one 1199 at the International Motorcycle Show this weekend.
