Panigale V2

https://www.motorcyclenews.com/bike-...igale-v2/2020/

I can't wait to test ride this one. I think it's the best looking bike I've ever seen...

It also says that the for pegs on V2 are lower than the ones on V4, so while not as comfy as SS, I hope it will be comfortable enough. I wonder what's the torque situation in the low revs compared to the SS.

What do you guys think of the bike?

I think it looks like a gorgeous motorcycle and probably a blast to ride but with the exhaust still looping under the seat and the bars below the triple clamps, its not going to be an all day comfy bike. The other negative I see (or think) is if the motor is the same as the 959 its not very twiny so there isnt a ton of torque like the SS has.

I loved the 18 959 Panigale I rented in Vegas but unless I only planned to track it or lived right off the curvy roads its giving up too much comfort for its sportiness.

A test ride would be great, though. Im hoping to this summer, to hopefully prove Im wrong.

Yeah, all the torque and power at high revs and nothing in low is my biggest concern. I have ridden several sport bikes and can't say they are my vibe... But what a gorgeous machine to look at! I'll definitely be testing it out. I'd say if it had the SS torque down low and ergos with the looks of the V2, it'd be a all round perfect bike IMO.

Can't wait to test ride it, even though I know if be disappointed...

I clearly consider trading my SS for this V2 next summer...

I'm sure some will criticize the Showa/Sachs suspension.

I'm sure someone else will criticize the Ohlins suspension when they spec out the S model.
