Ducati 1299s vs BMW S1000RR vs Yamaha R1M

So I'm looking to buy my second bike and out of all the amazing bikes out there I've narrowed it down to 3 favorites, the Ducati 1299s, BMW S1000RR and the Yamaha R1M. I really cant decide between the three. I love the looks on all three and they are all incredibly fast. I live in Denmark and here it's not that easy to get permssion to take such bike on a test ride. You have to be over a certain age with a minimum of x years driving experience etc. I know this is a Ducati forum but why would you choose one over the other? I apprecialte your thoughts especieally if you have tried riding two or all three of them. It will be used for street riding.

This kinda question is probably one of the worst questions to ask on any forum, let alone a Ducati forum with one of those options being a Ducati.

Bikes are mostly purchased based on personal taste, not much on performance since they are all more than capable bikes. I buy bikes strictly based on looks.... nothing else. Performance don't mean shit. Like I said, they are all great and more than capable bikes. Panigale is in a league of its own as far as looks go. Hands down, Panigale would be my choice every single time and twice on Sunday's. Not because I'm brand loyal since all 3 of my bikes are different brands.
Thanks from mark419ny and Thamer

No, its just stupid. Like someone bought a Ducati and would recommend against it. Then why did you buy it ?

Go to a Ford forum and ask "So, Im looking for a car, I am torn between the Mustang and the Camaro, what is your personal preference"....watch the response.

It's as much matter of personal opinion.
Brand experience , skill level and what you want it for.
The four cylinders are easier to ride and hence faster for inexperienced riders.
The pani is devastatingly quick but does take some getting used to.

Lol. Asshat🤣

Only really bad choice would be to listen to some of the stronger opinions on this forum and base your choice entirely on them. Some of us are here because we feel we made a good choice.

Thanks for your reply, double0. I dont think it's a stupid question but I might could've asked in a other way as in "why would you choose the Ducati over the other bikes mentioned".

My current bike is a 2012 R6 which I've had for three years.

NOLA, you seem to be pretty childish with that comment so wont be using time to answer your stupid comment
