the 1299 is a waste unless you can appreciate the power it has and use it - get the 959C

To put it simply it is a choice between a 600 and a 1000. It's personal preference, I would personally go with the 1299s though. The 1299 comes with way more nice stuff on it, wheels, aluminum tank, SSA, blipper, electronics etc. The 959 Corsa has Ohlins and paint, thats it.

Is there THAT big of a difference (600 to 1000)?

IMO yes, on the race track a 959 is a little faster down the straight than a 600. I would consider it to be on par with a fast 600 on the track.

You're entitled to your opinion. The 959 is nowhere near as slow as a 600!!! Even a "fast 600"...

well.... i pulled the trigger. i went with the 1299s, i didn't want to have the regret of wishing "i should have got the good one" although it was a very hard decision! i love the paint on the 959 corse

Go to the eight min mark here and you'll see me playing with an R6 (until the BMW crashes). Is the 959 faster...yes, Is it gutting the R6 in the fast stuff...no. Now this was my first track day on the 959 and it was 100% stock and not set up for me yet, but motor is motor.

I think you’re forgetting the part of the equation that matters most - the rider.
