Good question. I own an S4 with Leo Vince Ti exhaust, smaller rear sprocket and a couple small mods, like putting holes in the airbox.

I rode the S4R last week - admittdly a new one - and while probably a better bike - was not enough to make me want to spend the extra money. First of all, the new pipes are going to cost you dearly - whatever you buy. The mid-range was better than my S4, but not sure if that was really gearing or the larger engine. Not that much diffrence really. For someone trading in a Monster 900 or 750, well, there is no choice. For now I'm happy with the legendary 916.

If it were me, I'd look around to see if you can find a left-over '02 S4 and use the diffrence in price to buy pipes and accessories. There just isn't enough value in the price diffrence with the S4R and the single-sideed swingarm is no big deal so far as I can concern.

Either way, though, the S4R is not a bad choice. Talke a look at the red/silver-stripe version Ducati-Seattle did. I think it's on theior web page. Very nice and more sttractive than the blue/white version.
