I Ride: Panigale 1299
Anyone moved from 899 to 1299?

Hi everyone, I'm considering trading my 899 for a slightly used 1299 base. Has anyone here done that and could share their experiences? I don't track or race, so don't really need the extra HP, but have always lusted over the 1299.
Also, somewhat concerned with the issue of engine dying unexpectedly. is there a way to test for that? the 1299 is from a dealer and I'd have a few months of warranty, but don't want to get stuck with a problem. my 899 has been flawless.

If you e wanted one, go for it. No regrets this way. Since it's a dealers bike take it for a good long test ride. If it behaves you know it won't be a problem. If she's acting up on the test ride pass on it.

Before you leave on your test ride, for kicks tell your salesman to look up if the bike was made on Tuesday-Thursday. Tell him you don't want a Monday or Friday bike. See his reaction lol.

Do it if the bike checks out. I went from an 848 to 1199, was worried at first managing all the raging power, but the 1199 handled way better than the 848... I know it was not a 899 which is even more nimble but never the less, DO IT!

Had a 959 for two months and went to 1299 base. Very happy with it.

In the last 8 years I've gone from a Monster 696 to an 1199 to a Monster 1200S to a 1299S. It's taken me awhile to make up my mind, but the 1299S is the most fun and rewarding bike I've ever owned and I regret nothing.
