Awesome, Thanks for the pics. I'm heading to the show tomorrow and was wondering if there would be one on display. Looking forward to seeing it now.

That R looks familiar

The Tri is a great bike, as are all the 1199 variants, but it's a safe bet that if you're in the market for a high-end Superbike, the R's upgraded mechanical specs (Ti rods, DLC rockers, flywheel, fun bling-y carbon bits, new full system, sprocket, etc...) are even more of a deal vs. the Tri, and the R will be a bit rarer, at least in the US. Aesthetic likes/dislikes, are of course up to everyone.

The R is on the center, elevated platform at the show....where the Tri used to be, FWIW.

If there's (non-Desmosedici) Superbike that's been released with better performance specs............no, there hasn't been.

Dude, I don't want to go off on another R'ant

FWIW, it's disappointment, rather than anything else, since I never expected to see an R so quickly, with such a marginal, if even perceivable, performance increase over the base model.

Thinking about it, a DP equipped base model, with better wheels, would be significantly lighter than the R, which I'm sure any rider would appreciate more than 500rpm, Ti rods and DLC rockers

On the flip side, I guess Ducati put themselves in a corner by releasing such a cutting edge product.
Thanks from CaliDuc

X, I actually welcome the release of the R. However, I really think the Tricolore version of the 1199 is the best. A well tricked out Tricolore is in my personal opinion the Apex. The new stuff for the R is pretty meaningless to myself as I simply can't put it to use. Before i went out an purchased the 1098 S Tricolore I evaluated the 1098 R and 1198. I went once again for the Tricolore and decked it out.

For those who care about market valuations the Ducati Tricolore versions have historically held their value better than the R version.

Just my 2 cents.

Just 2 cents ... the way I personally view it Excluding engine mods ... My extremely rare and valuable 1199 Tricolore is better than the 1199 R

The Tri has been one of the more common 1199 variants sold in the US in 2012, with Base ABS being the least.
