RSV4 Heat Problem

I could go on. There are loads more stories like this and it doesn't take a lot to find them.

These machines are pushing 200 bhp and they will get hot. You think the V4 with more horse power, using more fuel with thinner engine casings to save weight will somehow be cooler?
Thanks from Nitrouz and Captain Greg

Wow I was unaware of this? I have a Blade and previously owned a few R1's but they were nothing like my Pani

The Dealer told me that the new V4 is much cooler to the feel for the rider and mentioned some story of superior cooling within the 4 pots.

Appreciate your feedback

With the R1 remove the cat and replace with a ypipe or gut it.

Got rid of 99% of heat.

I ran mine with no heat shield and would ride in shorts.

With the panigale you have the pipe coming right from the head to your leg almost, with the other i4 bikes exhaust gets cooled by passing air straight away.

I didn’t mean to sound harsh, but this subject does wind me up sometimes. The grass is no greener elsewhere.

Ultimately high performance comes at a cost, this is part and parcel whatever your manufacturer preference.

Fyi, the v4 is just as hot as the 1x99, if not hotter.

Heat isnít so awful. Itís hot, thatís for sure. It was about 70 out today. After some city and freeway riding, my legs weíre getting uncomfortable if I wasnít moving. It starts on the left side, eventually moves to the right as well. Iíve only been on the bike four times because of weather, but thatís what Iíve noticed so far.
