I think I will end up going for the red S, the Tricolore is gorgeous, but is it really worth 5K over the S because of the paint and a fancy DDA gizmo? I can justify the price of an S over the base bike because of the Ohlins and the wheels, but not for the Tricolore. If money was no object it would be the Tricolore for sure, but I don't quite live in that world..

I just got back from the local dealership... got a quote for an 1199 S with ABS... I'm excited to sit on one in person at the International Motorcycle Show next month!

Colour schemes and cosmetics aside, and i'm no party-pooper when it comes to new technology, but there is way too much 'creature comfort' equipment available* on this bike for me. I don't mind openly admitting that a 'standard' would suit me fine (is there anyone on here that will even be riding a non-'S' bike to within an inch of it's life?). *I sincerely hope that 1199's aren't plagued with electrical gremlins in 5 years time.

i sold my 1098 tricolore to buy a 1098R, even though the R outperformed the S no probs, I always thought the 1098 tri to be one of the most beautifull models and regretted selling it......So its a new tri for me !!!!

I Ride: 1199 abs
hi put a deposit on the standard with abs as it has the same motor why not,my 1198 was standard, i put a full temi system,and carbon bits.and a quick shifter on it so that extra money for the s was saved so i could have a quicker bike. and looked and the sound wow.

Standard

Doesn't seem quite right to call any variant of this bike "standard" but that's what I have ordered (with ABS). Don't think i will ever ride the bike in a manner that i would ever notice the difference made by Ohlins or the 400 gram weight saving of the S wheels. Tricolore is very nice but not almost 10k nicer than the "standard". Could by another decent 2nd bike with that money.
Speaking of money, does anyone have any views on how much the depreciation is likely to be on these bikes and which variant do you think will hold value the best or depreciate the most over 3 years?
Roll on next summer

I'm leaning toward the S model with ABS. Although, I do like the base model wheels and the Tricolore is growing on me. I may have to sell the S wheels to a base model owner and buy aftermarket wheels to show off the single sided swing arm.
