Haha, What can I say, I can find something to love in all motorcycles… 😂
The thing is I CAN ride more than 500 KM on either the SSS or the V2. They both hurt equally, but are hella fun.If you can't ride more than 300 miles on an SSS, why would you consider a V2?
The naughty question, is when would you ever get on the power band to on that V2? I mean the SSS is OK to 120+, so when when do you ever hit 145 mph + on the V2?
Now you have to expect to be roughed some on the SS forum when you brag about a V2. Anyway, expect it or not, here it is.
You know, lot of people think V2 overkill as you can’t utilize all of its speed on the road. Same goes for my 911, top speed 174, but have never visited that. Sweet spot is around 125. Much fun even though not used to potential.
I think the top speed of both would be similar, although I’ve never reached close to it.You know, lot of people think V2 overkill as you can’t utilize all of its speed on the road.

I really want a Panigale V2 but, I also realize the riding position and power profile are not really compatible with my lifestyle. Sure, it has a significant top-end rush boost over the 937/950 options and will carve canyon roads better. However, I don't live near canyons and a 100+ Hp will still get me easily over 100MPH and thrown in jail so, how much faster do I want to go? Will I really enjoy a long-distance roadtrip riding like a Gargoyle (a bit of an exaggeration but, there is a grain of truth there)?My SSS was probably best bike I’ve ever ridden or owned. Suspension was perfect for me. Now that’s it probably totaled, a V2 may be replacement. How’s comfort of V2 for a day trip?
