Lightbulb Panigale Owners Facts, Tips & Tricks

Thought it would useful to build a list of interesting facts, owner tips and undocumented features. I'm sure everyone gets the idea.

Everything is currently an undocumented feature for me, as I still don't have an English Owners Guide, however, I do have an interesting fact...


The Tricolore actually wears 2 different shades of white. The majority is flat-white, while the inner section of the nose number board, also the side-panel top vents are painted in metallic/pearl white.


I'll provide a pic soon, as its not visible in press shots. As for EICMA pics, lets just say that most of us where fixated on something else

Do you mean flat white as in no gloss or solid white as in glossy but no metallic? (that's how the 1098 tricolore was)

Have they retained the feature where the lights stay on for a while (30 seconds each press) if you hit the mode (down) button and then pull the key out?

I use that a fair bit.

Yup, solid gloss white with pearl metallic white detail.

Don't know why I said flat

right, that's how the 1098 tricolore was, with two whites. A lot of people thought it was weird - I liked it.
