1199S: 124.7kW/116.5 Nm torque.
RSV4 Factory: 119.2kW/102.8 Nm torque.
RSV4R: 115.2kW/102.8 Nm
S1000R: 129.2 kW/101.3 Nm
F4R: 120.8kw/101.1 Nm [Note, this is not the Corsacorta]
ZX10R: 123.8kw/96.5 Nm
CBR1000RR: 117.8 kW/102.9 Nm
GSXR 1000: 117.1 kw/102.1 Nm
RI: 111.7kw/101.3 Nm
So, the Panigale shades the ZX10 and F4, both of which also claim around the 190hp mark, but falls well short of the BMW - which actually does have that sort of power. I guess two other small surprises are that the V4 Factory is very close to the F4/ZX10 & not far off the Panigale and that there is as much as 4kW between Factory and R.

Having been a multi-Ape and multi-Duc owner, I have to say my 916 has more sex and soul than my "Silver Lioness" 2005 RSVR Factory. I feel the same about the RSV4, which I lusted after until the Panigale. Say what you want about Duc "unreliability," and Ape reliability, the Panigale is sooooooo much more amazing in the flesh, especially the Tricolore. The things are supposed to be a revelation to ride, even to riders with concurrent 1098Rs! That says a LOT! I love the shit out of my Apes (Still looking at Futuras; had a Mille) and my Ducs (900SS, 2 916s) and the odd MV F4 750 Evo2, but the Panigale makes the RSV4 APRC look like drunken origami in terms of styling. It's everything the [derivative] 1098 [highly-japanese-ish] S1000RR and YES the AWESOME-but-my-second-choice RSV4 Factory.
If I had one bike to buy today: Panigale S.

well there where 5 1199's at the SBR track day at sepang yesterday , 4 of them where in the C group 1 was in the A group but he was very slow , the C group also had 4 1098Rs running in it seams to be a trend here :-}}}
Love the SBR trackday.
On my first time with them I got into the C group and could lap a panigale on my lowly R6
Dont care how bad the rider was, it still feels good to chase down one of the machines and lap it.
