If Ducati were to come out with a production 4, I would definitely be making room for one in my garage.

I want the R, but would prefer it if it came with the non-homologated Akrapovic and electronically adjustable Ohlins suspension similar to the previous R. The SL internals of the new R make moving to the 1299S, either the Anniversario S or just S, instead less appealing.

Having the same HP but with less torque is fine since I seem to think that the additional 6.5 lb/ft is trivial.

Don't wait on it ...
I take this as simply meaning we won't see it for the 2017 model year. I expect it in 2018. If Aprilia had a better support network I'd probably pick up the RSV4 RF now. But they don't and I really like the convenience and service at AMS Ducati Dallas, so I'm going to wait and see what Ducati does

It's amazing how many people say the 899 feels light compared to a liter bike. Especially when there is only 20lbs or less difference between the bikes ... Even the 1199/1299 riders say the 899 feels lighter even though the 1199/1299 is clearly a lighter bike... The geometry really plays a big role.
Keep in mind that I have the Rotobox wheels, magnesium case, Termi, and other lighter components on my 899 which brings the overall weight somewhere below the 400 lbs. mark. As soon as you cross below that magic number, everything else will give you the impression that it is Godzilla. I never thought I would be able to, but (honestly) I can get on and off the bike without the kickstand now and THAT wasn't ever possible before. I am 5'11 and around 150 lbs without gear - 30 inch inseam.

Though, I do have a Shorai on the RR as well now, so with all the weight reduction on it that I have done, I have to admit and agree that the geometry DOES greatly influence the feel. Especially since the RSV4 is reportedly very agile.

Your clairvoyance was pretty close to perfect accuracy and your wish has been more or less served.
