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, it’s 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 it’s not very “twiny” so there isn’t 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 it’s giving up too much comfort for its sportiness.
A test ride would be great, though. I’m hoping to this summer, to hopefully prove I’m wrong.
