in all honesty, if I didn't have a boxful of parts from my 2010 bike and the HP4 was ready for delivery in August, I'd have taken it.
Just didn't make sense to wait four months for an HP4 when I already had Brembo monoblocs, Akrapovic exhaust, and plenty of carbon fiber bits, etc in storage.
I'm not saying the HP4 isn't badass. I'm just in a unique situation where already owning all the upgraded hardware meant that the only thing I would be getting for the extra $5K would be DDC.
