749r - Opinions please

After much thought im thinking a 749r would be a great replacement for my 748, much as i love the looks of this series i am hoping to get a 749r.
The 2004 carbon fairing model is at the top of my wish list so was just hoping any current or ex owners would share there views of these bikes. Also how do you think residual value will be as plain 749 models seem to haemorage money! What kind of price should i expect to pay??....cheers

Sorry......but don't they change most of the 999R before they race 'em ?

unlike the 749R which is the real deal straight outta the box!

even gets a Slipper clutch as standard unlike the 999R
(not a proper one tho eh Andy! LOL)

not that I am biased, but I love my 749R !!!!



ps: AndyB, unlike you to give me a chance to rib you back !?

You want a good 998R you do!

And I just happen to be selling one, what a coincidence!

After speaking to jhp today service costs arent any worse than say a 748r unless the heads come off to do the shims, apparently this is pretty rare thankfully!

As for a 998 r, ive noticed a 998r and a 996r for sale this week.Both beautiful bikes but would i really want to use one if i had one? probably not
