    There is no doubt that the Ducati Panigale V4 is an awesome machine and a very attractive bike, the Kawasaki H2R is a well engineered package and super quick, but for me the Yamaha R1M has soul and is a riders bike. The sounds it can make are out of this world, the power delivery is like now other in terms of how it happens. I'm a Yamaha man having owned and ridden 4 generations dating back to the original 98R1.When it came out in 98 the R1 was a ground breaking bike that lead the way in sports bike performance, each year after 98 the model got 'refined' and heavier (taking the edge off the rider experience), the 2007 R1 was the last of the screamers and then the 'big bang' engine arrived.The R1M is a step further in the evolution.

    Ducati panigale v4s is the current winner in road and track with the 4 cylinder inline engine ..with the engine bored to deliver 200 plus horse power with all driving modes including the slide control mode is value for money..kawazaki H2R if you need crazy speed in a straight track..R1M..is close to the two..but lacks the appeal of a panigale. but an ysmaha is an Yamaha .so its upto you.

    In case of sound, the R1M and H2R quiet a bit,but R 1M sounds better in my personal opinion. In case of sheer outright track performance, R1M and V4. In case of looks and straight line performance, H2R.
