Howdy.
Doing ok thanks.
I figured I'd find out soon enough when I saw one, so didn't bother with all the pre-release stuff.
So now I'm thinking a base pannigale might make a good track bike and keep my lovely R. It would be nice to have a 2 seater in the garage at times. My only bike at the mo is the single seated R.

Cheers mate.

Todka... The 1098R is truly special. A keeper. Aesthetically, imo, there is no comparison. Functionally, it far exceeds the skills of the vast majority astride it. This "R" version of the 1098 didn't appear the first year of the 1098. The second year it came along for homologation purposes. Then the 1198 fulfilled those purposes. I'm not sure there will be an 1199R. The 1199 itself might be the homologation bike. Not that there won't be special 1199 versions forthcoming, but we will see. Regardless, the 1098R is the one.

There will be an R version next year. Its already been discussed, and dealers are aware of it(well ones with connections).

wow i don't know if id have sold the R to buy the Ape. I mean i love the Ape, and it's a fun easy ride compared to the R. but the R is truly a special machine. If i had to choose...even tho i enjoy riding the Ape more, id probably still keep the R instead.

The 1098R is the one superbike I'd choose over any other, even the D16RR. Also, I think R and S models with upgraded specs are much preferable to Diesel, Cromo, AMG, Carbon, and all those other gay "special editions." Reminds me of Harley to be honest...
