Says one of the riders in the video is Ruben Xaus. He might be quick...I think I heard somewhere. I still think I can take him!

Better power to weight than the 999...sounds like it would be an awesome machine to have.

Is there a downside to this that I'm missing?

Is the 1098 R the new one? Because the standards don't make anywhere near that power. In fact, I have a tough time believing this bike puts down 135. Thats gotta be crank numbers.
