I Ride: 2013 Panigale 1199S
Side by Side Comparison: Ducati V4 vs 1299

Threw them side by side in Photoshop to see how much the bike changed visually. Figured you guys would like to see as well.
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.

Thanks from bradp51

I don't find the new one repulsive, I think it will be an interesting platform to develop.

If looks were everything I'd still be single

This.

Great platform that will get better and better as time goes on. No desire to jump on one now, but in 3-4 years, definitely!

I like the new one look at those wheels and that big back tire

Just saw that they teamed with Rizoma for some of the accessories as well.

Thanks from Mrdcook2

Shouldn't be judging everything by its appearance, but it looks like an inbred bastard child. There's got to be something beautiful underneath that surface.

the front end looks cleaner without the two gill slits. the left side also looks cleaner as it does away with that clunky rear shock setup. swingarm is beefy looking but still not as artful as the mv's.

i think the one thing that will be universally agreed upon is the dislike of the two piece tank and how the fairing blends into it. plus it's really wide looking.

just wait till you see it.

I think the truth is that only those with a trained eye for Ducatis will even know they are different.

Yeah. If I brought a new V4 home my wife wouldn't even notice the change.
