My New 2019 Panigale V4S - With Pictures of All Mods and Accessories

Hi all,

I picked up my brand new V4S on Saturday and thought I'd post some pictures up.

I've been lurking on the forum for quite some time now and can't thank everyone enough for all the advice and knowledge that they post.

I've previously owned a 2014 Triumph Street Triple, 2016 BMW S1000RR and a Yamaha MT-07.

This is without a doubt the best bike I've ever owned by far. Even though I've only had it a short time, the bike excites me every time I take it out and I feel like I'm riding something very special.

When I picked up the bike, I had yet to hear the Akrapovic slip on mufflers in person and when the dealer started it up for the first time, I couldn't wipe the smile off my face. These bikes sound so angry and no youtube video does them justice at all!

Awesome!! Love the Carbon tank- battery cover.. Enjoy!! My R comes in April for Racing only, the S makes a great street/track bike.

If money wasn't a factor, I'd love to have gotten the V4R. It's potentially the best looking bike ever made in my opinion. I'm very jealous of your purchase haha.

To be honest, I was literally about to put down a deposit on the brand new 2019 S1000RR M spec, but after seeing it in person, I decided that the V4S was the bike for me. The new BMW looks too much like a Jap bike and has lost that European feel? I'm sure it'll be a great all round bike though as the current model is a killer bike.

But so far I have no regrets on getting the Panigale

I'd take off that key ring before it scratches something.

First thing I did was have my V4S completely covered with clear bra.

Congratulations and have fun with it.

Hi San, the key ring is only soft rubber and won't mark the carbon. I also insert the key like I'm a surgeon performing a brain surgery

I was thinking about doing a clear film on the bike, but found out it's quite expensive to get done and I've already spent a small fortune on the exhaust and accessories. So it'll have to wait for a while other whys my Mrs will kill me! Haha

The thing is with this bike its so very difficult to stay below the open speed limit if this were Europe I would be forever on the Autobahn as thats where this thing would shine.
Sadly the boys in blue look very dimly on one going 300Klm/Hr not that there are many safe roads here in my state to try that speed.
I have only wound mine to 236Klm/Hr and it was pulling like a freight train just clicked into 4th I think, the road dictated that a severe reduction in speed was required.

The best mod you can put on the V4 is the throttle spacer kit as it gets rid of the free play and makes keeping constant speed easy as pie.
Mines in the shop getting a sticker kit then the oil cooler, reduced clutch line from 3mm - 2mm and an oil & oil filter change, I do mine at 6000K intervals despite what Ducati say.

Welcome to the fraternity.....

I am with you man

Really wanted to force me to like the new S1000RR, but shit that thing looks like an old CBR 1000, especially the tail section. Not saying it won’t perform

But the most beautiful V4 vs new jap bmw

I am going to go with the V4
