What K1200S? Take the 998. I've a K1200R which I like a lot and I used to work at a BMW dealer where I rode plenty of K1200Ses and GTs. They're nice enough but they are really long and pretty heavy.

The Ducati is an icon. It has the Testastretta heads in the 916 chassis. The valve clearance will need to be checked more frequently than the BMW but it will probably cost less than the BMW to check and to adjust will probably be no more than the BMW.
