Need Opinions

I love my current ride and I am going to add a second bike this spring. My question is should I not only get the 1000R but trade my current bike in on a 1098? I could even spend the winter parting put my current bike and place it back to stock then trade. Here is my current bike, an 03 R1 with around 6K miles on it. Never had a duc before and not sure of the new engine and if it would have any problems to work out in the first year of production.

Your best bet with the R1 is to put it back to stock and sell all of the aftermarket stuffs.

Good luck!!!

Wow, that's one sweet ride.......would be a shame to let her go aye. But you've clearly got the disease in you. The one that posesses you to mod & customize. If it's time for another project get the MV. Then you'll be posessed by another bug.......MV passion

Oh yes, the best of both worlds

Like Archille said, put the R1 back to stock and sell it and all the aftermarket stuff.

Good luck and go get those Italian beauties

dude that a real nice ride you have there
judging by the attention to detail on the r1
id say that your buying an mv and a duc
would suit u, because out of the box or crate they
have amazing attention to detail, so i think you would really appreciate them\

Thats a sweet R1!!!

I think the best option for you is a 1000R. The 1098 will be much slower than your R1 and you will probably be disappointed. I personally find the powerband on the v twins to be disappointing when you've been riding 4 cylinders for a while.

The 1000R on the other hand will be as fast or faster than your R1 in terms of performance.

If I could afford both, I'd have them both. You could buy the f4 this year, let the frenzy die out a little with the 1098 and let them sort the new bike issues out. With the possibility of 1200cc in superbikes you never know, there may be a 1200cc road version...
