MCN says the V4 is faster:

Bruce said. “It accelerates so fast that you can’t feed it gears quickly enough - it just eats one up and instantly demands another. I’ve not ridden a production sportsbike that is so fast to accelerate. "

times show a different story, but Bruce probably knoes better
That because MCN have a love affair with anything named Ducati:(

Completely agree Rob, they’re full of shite, no credibility and all sensationalized for the next big launch, very short memories as per the test below...

Last time I looked 204 bhp is more than 198 bhp

Maybe stock for stock, but the factory H2 has its throttle blades close to 32% past 10krpm LOL! Once the h2 is flashed, a V4 isnt even in the league.

If there are corners involved, I am quite sure a well-ridden Panigale V4 will leave a comparably-ridden H2 behind, owing to less weight and probably more manageable power delivery, and hopefully better suspension.

I did 350 km today of mostly back roads ... and I took my well-sorted high-mileage 2004 ZX10R, which is a sweetheart in those conditions. There's a reason I've put almost 100,000 km on that bike ...

I have read:

“It accelerates so fast that you can’t feed it gears quickly enough - it just eats one up and instantly demands another. I’ve not ridden a production sportsbike that is so fast to accelerate. "

...and still dont see where "corners" or "curves" or "race track" or "back roads" or "twisty roads" is...

I have a 2005 ZX10R and I have to agree it is a sweetheart for that.
BUT I took the H2 for a 375mile putt yesterday, and 300 of those miles were back road. With my modified throttle, managing the power is almost as easy as the 10. I had a great time on the H2. Yes a bit harder to throw around than the 10, but it became a pure blast to ride. And the seat finally broke in and isn't bad. Finally getting used to it.
Changing the throttle tube made it a new motorcycle. But it needs a radar detector in the worst way.
