About to order a brand new 1299S, talk me out of it

Likewise tho I only have an S!

Fuelling is spot on on this one. Friends with panigales similarly no complaints about the fuelling ??
Must be major variations either across production or perhaps pump fuel may be a consideration in different countries ??

Think you need a test on another less abused 1299!

After fours it def takes a change in riding style but when you become accustomed to the 1299 it is very fast and rewarding.

Are other bikes faster, yes. Are other bikes cheaper to maintain yes. Do any of the other bikes give me the feeling that this amazing twin does. NO. I will most likely get the V4 when it arrives however I will not sell this 1299S. It has amazing grunt like no other i4 or V4 out there. The best advice I can give is buy the bike you wont be second guessing your self with.

Faster than a 1299. Not much

V4 should be interesting

If you are going to order one wait the resale will drop like a rock once the v4 is out ask any 1199 owner

Don't buy one. They're awful below 50mph and the wheelie control is unpredictable ;D

Do you think so? I mean I understand the 1199 dropping in value with the 1299 having a more street friendly motor. (torque range). But if Ducati stops the the 1299 superbike all together. And it sounds like they have. I would think that having the last of the mighty twins would offset that a bit. But hey what do I know I am just speculating.

Piece of crap. After all I've read I'm putting mine up for sale in the morning before it falls apart and the resale drops any farther 🤣
