Here's a close up look at the panniers. As of last night, still not available on Ducati website and thus no price yet for the touring package. Other packages are stated (no photo) and costing about $1K, so I imagine in the same ballpark. I am doubtful these will be compatible with the full Ti -Akra pipes or very close to exhaust cans if so (it does seem the panniers sit away from the bike).

There's no way you could combine the Akra full Ti pipes with the panniers - two things can't occupy the same space at the same time.

Those definitely won't fit together. Side note, I would like to see how wide the rear is with both side panniers installed

Same. In this picture they look pretty wide. Also, it almost looks like they are collapsible\expandable

Anyone know how much the panniers are going to cost?

And if red and black will be the only colors?

side view of red 939SS with panniers

Just a side view of red 939SS with panniers. I agree with the previous posts about these panniers may be quite off the side of the bike and appears expandable. Further, I wonder if it uses the Klick-fix quick on and off attachment part. Those work well. Oh well, the panniers are a big reason for my interest in buying this bike, that is, sport touring possibilities.

I wonder how easily you could swap exhausts on this bike, too. I really like the GP style exhaust but it takes away some from the versatility of the bike, not being able to use panniers or passenger pegs.

I wish there was a bellypan option ala' Panigale. I like to show off the rear wheel.

Exhaust systems are not easy to swap, so I'd steer clear of that idea.

Have you ever ridden a Panigale in the summer? If so, you might reconsider that idea as well, as the exhaust heat is more than ample.

I hear the Panigale is a real roaster! I'd love to try one. But, isnt the heat coming from that huge jug right near the legs than any kind of exhaust heat?

Right, probably a bad idea on the exhaust.

Anybody have a picture of the brackets installed without the panniers mounted?
I am thinking about ordering a SS with panniers, but plan to just use the panniers when nescessary.
Just wondering how big and bulky these bracets are

ALL ducatis, since about 1972, have "that huge jug right near the legs". Not all of them have heat problems. My Monster doesn't generate significant extra heat there, unless stuck in unmoving traffic for half an hour or more. The Panigale's heat comes from the exhaust loop that comes up behind the engine, just as the bikes with underseat exhausts were hot because of those.

Wonder if they'll also come with White sections instead of Red.

Yes they do. You can see them on the Ducati website. First go to the bottom and select your country. Then go to Equipment, Accessories & Apparel, Supersport Then on the right side on the second drop down for model select new-supersport and then click search. That will give you a list of 4 pages of accessories. When you click on the side panniers it will bring up first a picture of the red ones and a scroll button to view the white ones. Or just click the link below:

I quizzed the dealer about panniers yesterday at length here in the U.S. He showed me some photos of how the panniers attached. They attach to brackets/frames that are somehow attached to the underside of the rear seat. There is no connection whatsoever to the sides of the bike. The bags (sorry, have to use the American word) are expandable, have zippers, and are not lockable as far as I can tell. Dealer claims they can fit helmets. In any case the brackets do not appear to easily detach from the underside of the seat. My guess is that you can unbolt them, but you can't detach them without tools. This is a negative to me as I imagine I will rarely have the bags on and I have no desire to have naked brackets messing up the look of the bike. I am actively searching for a non-Ducati solution to the storage issue, since I'd like to do some light touring with this beautiful machine. If you buy the bike before April 30th you receive 20% off the bags and the touring windscreen. In the U.S. that brings the price "down" to $1300. Ducati kills me with the prices of their bags.

But they have the logo on them!

But really, they do look great and seem like they would function well if you were someone who would use them a lot. For my life, they would be a waste 90% of the time. I'll just go with a 3rd party manufacturer.

Ducati have lost their mind with those prices...

$1300 for two small panniers? That is absolutely insane and way beyond the price that would be considered a ripoff to begin with.

I didn't think the price for the Ducati panniers were that bad if you consider options from other vendors. 25 liters per bag is a decent amount of storage and keeps a nice factory look.
