Just like everything really.....look at the D16...$72k new now you can buy them for $40k.....which I plan on doing in the coming months
Lets revisit this thread in five years time and we'll see what your 1199 is worth! But yeah, the R models are often a bit ouchy when it comes to depreciation...
I bought the 1199 and was disappointed which lead me to the 1098R. So glad I have the R instead.
Never heard that with any Ducati with the exception of the D16RR....$4,000 for valve work IIRC. From what I gather by querying techs and Ducati guys, the 1098R engine is extremely well made, probably the last, best Ducati superbike in terms of internal/external go fast goodies, quality.Is it true that the 1098r engine needs a top end and other assorted expensive work at 15 thousand miles?
Interestig to hear, what was disappointing ab Panigale that you enjoy more with 1098r?I bought the 1199 and was disappointed which lead me to the 1098R. So glad I have the R instead.
This winter will be the bottom of the market for these bikes so you guys who want one better do it now.
wait... you almost bought a new R but didn't because you wanted to wait 4 years for an 1199?
First let me tell you what I loved about the Panigale: the light weight, the quick steering and responsive handling, and the sound - what a fantastic noise the Pani makes! The dash! The modes and the suspension were also quite nice although the shock did dig into my left thigh a bit.
