But while upgrading from a 2014 R I can't help but feel a bit anxious. While it will be an awesome machine, it's still not quite a 1299........ and how much BHP will a 1299 achieve if you chuck the full Akrapovic system on it? 215 maybe?

Have I made the right choice?!?!
I have a friend who has ridden the 1299 and raved about it saying the engine had the same low down torque of the 98 series whereas the R is a SL engine and spools up quickly and has lot's of top end.

If i go for the R i will out on the full akra system as i already have it and maybe change the fork internals so i'm thinking it will be a slightly heavier SL, but till i meet someone who has ridden it or a decent review it's all guesswork.

Weather is ridiculous. And plans change. Ill txt ya. Not happening anymore. That should also have said 1299s deposit paid in full not 1299s paid in full.

I purchased 1299 at the same week it was introduced in Milan. But now wondering about upgrade to 1299s. Pricing difference is a lot here in Finland, retail price 37600€ (42480$) where the base model is 30600€ (34571$).

This is due vehicle tax. But luckily our weather is great, roads in excellent condition and speeding tickets are low. NOT.

Bike will arrive in April as well, so plenty of time to make that decision.

The 2015 R already as a full Akra and the shocks are already similar spec (how else can they justify the price hike?!).

That's my worry, there's not much more you can do to it. The 1299 however, could be fitted with an Akra, tuned etc. and then be a better more powerful machine?!?!

Forget the power, what about the weight. Try getting the 1299 into the R territory. That's going to cost monaaaay!!! We do need some reviews.

Homologated Akrapovic titanium exhaust

A homologated Akrapovic exhaust, with silencers and tubes fully in titanium, is as beautiful as it is functional. Allowing the Panigale R's engine maximum breathing and maximum power, this exhaust is impeccably built and weighs only a fraction of what a comparable steel exhaust does

I presume this is different to the full akra system that is currently available to pass emission laws but I do think this is the same as the stock system that came with the sl and then they had the race system that you could also use.
