This is what I'm worried about, I've ordered the R and I'm now wondering if I'm right?!

I guess, bottom line, I had the 2014 R, the 2015 R will be streets ahead of it so I have to be happy with that.

Just don't like the idea of being upstaged by a lesser model when I've paid premium for the R.
You don't have anything to worry about tbh. The R is an R and the 15R will be awesome. You'll be spending a lot more money on a 1299S to reduce weight etc, than you'll spend buying a 15R. If I didn't order the SL, i'd have ordered a 15R along time ago. As I've mentioned before, dealers I've spoken too would buy the 15R if they could for themselves. I'll add a 15R just for the sake of it just for doing TD's when my house is sorted.

I too have suddenly been debating whether or not I'll enjoy the 15 R much more than the S, because the price is so drastically higher.

In the end I'm sure us with 15 R orders will love every waking moment on them.

I usually go back and forth until I make myself sick but I am actually content with my decision.

Anyone else spotted the Panigale R gets last years wheels while the 1299 gets new one's by the look of it? (or have I missed that in another thread?!)

The pictures show the base 1299 and 1199 R. The 1299 S has the same rims as the R. Just looked at the ducati homepage...

Yeah, I can see it now you've said it by the front suspension. I kinda like the look of those rims though.

Still a p*sser that the only model to get new wheels is the base model........

Someone say magnesium *wallet creaking open*
