If someone was to consider buying a 999R to add to there Pikes Peak, R, Corse and SPS collection which generation of 999R should be most desirable?
What are the differences between generation 1 and 2 of the 999R?

All advice gratefully received.

There's a lot of personal preferences with these.

Some say 1st model some say later.
The limited editions - some say Fila, some say Xerox

The red ones seem to have levelled out in value over the last 2 or 3 years where the base and S models have climbed so expect them to start increasing in value again. The Fila and Xerox seem to have climbed more.

I have a Red 999R and a Fila but bought at a better time luckily so show a good profit if I sell :)

I would consider the 999r model to have 3 variants,
1- Grey swingarm, Grey frame. wide spoke forged wheels -2003
2- Black swingarm, Red frame, narrow spoke wheels-2004
3 - different front fairing, slightly higher hp figures given - 2006?

I have had 2 version 2's and personally don't like the grey swingarm version as it looks cheap in comparison to the later models, so the 2004+
looks the best ( only my opinion )

What would you recommend, in the investment Ducati department....
I'm going with the D16 and a couple of R's to replace my Pfizer shares.... automatic sell at $78/share......
Thinking Jan/Feb/Mar.... when people are desperate after Christmas and with Tax bills to pay.
