After 6 months and 6400 miles i have got rid of the Panigale, it just doesn't feel right to me on our roads, it feels light and skittish and moves about far too much for my liking, i had an Ohlins guy set up the suspension for me which made it better but not good enough. I refuse to pay for suspension upgrades like some have mentioned on other forums after paying 20k for a bike. I know a lot of people find the pani perfect but it's just not for me, i took delivery of an RSV4 APRC yesterday.
Shame you didn't get on with the Panigale. I'm still enthusiastic about mine and loving every minute of it. However, it isn't perfect but then to my mind that adds a bit to its character.
When making the choice for the Pani, I loved the RSV4 I rode and was on the cusp of buying one. However, I went for the Pani as it was a Ducati and a generation of development ahead of the RSV4 (might or might not be a good thing!).
I think you'll love the RSV4 and I would love to hear how you get on with it. The engine is outstanding in my opinion.
Got out on the RSV4 for a blast yesterday, i have owned one before but not an APRC version. What a blast i absolutely love it. Just feels so much better on the road than the Pani especially cornering and the power delivery is so smooth.
