S1000RR v Ducati V4R

https://youtu.be/pacvHIW3QGI

Comparison on the track. Some points to note:
-the V4R has the full Akra, the RR is stock
-they say the RR is a lot more comfortable, perhaps too comfortable for the track
-the V4R costs about twice as much as the RR.
For someone who rides mainly on the road with an occasional track day, I know which one I would prefer.

Give me an extra $20k on top of the regular BMW and we can make a missile of a motorcycle. That will get you a world superbike engine with god knows how much hp.

Honestly when they compare a bike that costs literally half the amount of another, you know you made the right choice. The whole time they were favoring the V4R, but it's because you could buy two of the M's for the same amount. Get a base/race package and you can add everything the V4R has and end up around the price of a V4S ($27,500). At this point you could still buy another M package for the same price of one race kit V4R.

A ducati owner in dianese leathers...who would have thought.

Anyone know either of these riders and what their experience is? I mean one of them could be @flyryder for all we know. Another motovlogger?

The so called comparison is indeed laughable. 20 minutes of my life I'll never get back.

Going by Ducati's record (street use, hell maybe even track use), id still rather have the RR.

Ducati's are just nice to look at. Rides hot as ****, and questionable reliability whether mechanical or electrical.
