Post up in the 1299 or Ducati forums. Im sure someone will be up for it. Ive been to MIR couple of times last year on open days, and Ive seen a couple of 1199s there.

I've ridden and raced the 1199 on some straights. I was very disappointed. If you guys know anyone send them my way I would love to race one. I have a friend with an 899 who swore it would whoop my 600 and we raced and it was even a race. He's since sold it bought the new r1 and sold it 3 mos later because he didn't like that either now he's talking about the 1299 but wants me to race one before he pulls trigger. wants to make sure it would blow me out of the water.

If both bikes are modded similarly and both riders are of similar size and experience the 1299 will walk after the wheelies calm down in the lower speeds.

If you are both similar in skills, weight and setup I would encourage you to tread lightly if wanting to dice it up in the deep end.

Determining which bike is "faster" is a little different than quicker. Quicker is who crossed the line first, faster is who trapped higher.

I have a lot of runs under my belt with the 636 against heavier yet determined 1000cc riders. They always torque me by several lengths and only in 6th can I hope to lock up and creep back. Sometimes I clock the higher speeds but still can't complete the pass by the 9/10ths sometimes I do pass. What makes these types of outcomes even possible is by me setting up the bike properly, being much lighter than them and narrower shoulder to shoulder to fit. Bigger guys bleed a lot of speed on 1000s as the speeds climb.

I'm not in any shape to hop onto a bike now, not to mention being featherweight will skew the results. However Hibs is on the board and has run at the strip and 9/10ths before with his ZX12. Generally speaking ZX12s are heavier than the 1299 but uncorked a zx12 is in the honest 170ish RWHP on pump gas.

Be warned, while I rode a stock 08 cbr 1000rr against him many moons ago our bikes were in the same frame at the finish it was that close. But from a performance index perspective he is roughly your size and the 16 year old heavier 12R is roughly on par with a 1299 through the gears.

Bring GPS if going for mph bragging rights, bring a camera at the finish for ET bragging rights. Be safe out there, triple check tire pressure, oil level and loose or ill fitting frontal bodywork.

it should be significantly different the 12 is an linking 4 and the 1299 Is a v twin the twins normally in my opinion have great low speed torque and Peter off in the higher speed. I'm not necessarily looking for a 9/10 I literally am on a stock bike with one down on the front sprocket. The only thing I am looking for is like a 40-140 roll. I don't mind going from a dig but it wouldn't count as a W unless they race track. My launches are nasty. If you know anyone with a 1299 who is a good rider and isn't a crappy rider with a fat wallet let me know.

you reference weight reduction and aerodynamics... let's step back a second... if both riders are on stock bikes ANY bike and you are racing and you have proper weight distribution their should only be wheelies from a launch. I have owned over 30 bikes zx10 gsxr 1k all sorts of bikes and people on similar bikes are having trouble keeping the front down and it's because of crappy body positioning

I think it's time for you to explain to us how to ride bikes since you are a racer you could share some of the knowledge.

I'm usually clicking 6th over 150 mph mph at the 1/2 mile mark on the 636.

I would suggest a 1/2 mile run. Just find a nice clean smooth straight spot, measure out the part where your are starting the roll from (street light, curbing, etc) and GPS .50 miles. Setup a buddy at the end. You will need at least 1/10 to properly synch up the speeds.

1/2 mile run means essentially the entire deed start to finish can be carried out covertly from after one exit to before another.

As for being dead set on going up against a 1299 you will find a few things that make this difficult.

1) Most higher end Ducati owners have no desire to prove themselves against smaller Japanese sportbikes.

2) Most higher end Ducati owners have no desire to ride/race their expensive equipment hard.

3) 1299 Ducatis, generally speaking, are few and far between.

Yeah man in my opinion it's a high prices piece of shit. I'm looking for someone to prove md wrong. Against a bmw s1krr my bike looks like a 250cc. I want to see if a 1299 pani will do that. I do think that the pani riders may race to prove a point since most assume 1299 is faster than 600. My buddy swear the 1299 is smoking fast. It may be... if it is maybe it will be my next bike instead of s1krr that's why I wanna find out. I am very disappointed in the 1199 though. I literally want 40 to 140 kick. no distance. I'll do a left hand raise and drop as the flag.

1299 is no juggernaut but judging from this

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XyzFVDF2QOw

I'm not sure you on the gsxr 600 could honestly keep up in the 1/4 let alone 1/2. Maybe the 1/8 as they are fighting wheelies more than a 600.

I still wanna race one. in a 1/8th I run fron 6.85-7.10 on a 600 that's zooming. I have yet to see a 600 on track even break a 7 other than my bike. I've seen a few dudes out of Maryland on worked 750s running 6.4-6.5 but most dudes aren't doing that without a stretch or an air shifter. I'm just curious what they pull like.
