Why is this or have they just fitted slip ons to this S which might explain why it retains the stock heat shield.

Love the power gains of the akrapovic system for the V4, but really hating the asymmetrical design of the right exhaust sticking out further than the left. I'm hoping termi and AR give the V4 a try with a more symmetrical design with similar if not more power gains. This 'Akra designed for DP' rubbish they've been pulling off is obviously a money grab, which if i were to get a V4, might be suckered into ><

At this point I really think we've just been photos taken at bad angles (not only referring to the spy shots). One of things where pictures don't do it justice.
It's growing on me. Make the tank a wee bit shorter and put a carbon cover on that frame and I'd be all set.

Regardless, I'm broke, so I'll be riding the 1199 until the wheels fall off.

The fact it's still labelled a Panigale is why, V4 motor shoved in the old bike. There has to be similarities.

I'm still not sold, I will have to see this thing. For me I could be buying this on performance rather than looks. I'm not in for this asymmetrical thing or:

1) poor fitting on the tank cowl
2) tank shape viewed from the tail
3) excessively long tail
4) the long 'weak' looking resets, poorly designed heel guards to match
5) the side stand is rediculous
6) and possibly the biggest eye poo is the way the enigine is offset when viewed from the rear, I'm guessing due to the offsetting of the two cylinder banks for a more compact engine. It is nicely tucked away from the right side and protrudes out past the sub frame on the left, so much so it warrants an engine cover on one side but not the other. It also requires a spacer for the 'front frame' to attach to the engine on the right hand side. Ducati clearly know this because on their own website they don't show full photos of the left hand side of the bike which I find odd.

Tank looks like a humpback whale.
Fairing to tank piece looks like an afterthought.
Headlight shape??? Nah
Tail looks like the RSV4. Not bad for Aprilia but Ducati copying them ????

Fire away.

Eh, I still like them enough to buy one when the budget allows. I think the big twin Panigales do look a little better but I still find the V4 Speciale with the mag wheels very appealing.
