the only thing I'd say is that you might want to buy extra fairings so you don't ruin the "R" fairings, and the traction control is less advanced than on the 1198. Otherwise, even at a few thou more... I'd get the R... it's really specialR. Collectible? S. Not.
R. Gives me "wood." S. "Wood," gotten, but maybe less.
R. Adj. Rake, CF everywhere, mag wheels, gigantic exhausts, service stand, race ECU, cover, badge on triple, limited production, motor internals in Ti
Anyone see a downside to the R when the prices get close? I appreciate candor. Brutal candor.
