what an engine! i have heard good things about it, but was not quite prepared for how good it was.
they didnt have an RS to take out, just the S, so no quick shifter, but very impressed with the bike in general.
still not sure about the looks, but not sure i would care with that engine underneath me.
its a serious contender right now.

I think it looks great...the build quality is fantastic...and a great engine.

Haven't seen the attached photo. Doesn't seem to work on my phone.

Speed Triple S?

There's an 1150 version due next year. Very tempting.
Significantly faster than you.....

i didnt know that, although not sure i would need any more ponies, the 1050 was rapid

I wonder if it's to balance any new emissions regs strangling the engine?

Assuming you girls have finished and back to a serious question - you gonna get the new S1R Alzo?

New Speed will be an 1160cc apparently to beat euro 5(?) strangulation and gain a bit more power. 
Significantly faster than you.....

I have an eye out on the Ducati V4 Street fighter and the new S1000R...Ducati is imminent...S1000R is 2021 soonest.

The Wizard of MOz

V4 Streetfighter will be £18k I reckon.

Starting to get a bit rich for me.

£12k for the SDR was about as much as I'd spend. Thinking 2 used bikes next. Speed RS and 675R if I can sort a pair for sensible money. Loving my 675.

Yeah guessing Ducati would be around that...it would need to be spectacular...the new S1000R would be the real option...but like yourself I have had the thought of holding on to the S1000R and adding either an 899 or an 1199 Panigale to the stable.
