DTC Evo2 and 'R' side wings only seem valuable and noticeable if you ride it ‘WSBK style’ hard, else its just an unused dormant rear slippage mapping and (ugly?) bling.

Additionally, the meaner looking Shark-fin side gills and the wider airy fairing, seem to be quite functional: enabling the hot engine to easier shed off some more of its bloody heat?
Hopefully this new setup finally mitigates clutch-fade issue in slow traffic?!

More flex in front section like 'R' and improved rear-suspension linkage for easier turn-in and feel, sound interesting.

I'm not sure thrill with wings either. I'm sure the wings can be removed right?

The "flex" in the 2020 V4/V4S front frame is simply where they cut two bloody great holes in it, as per the R, so even more component commonality. I imagine the accountants in Bologna are pleased. Three models sourced from largely one parts bin.

According to the project manager for the V4, it was 1 sec improvement at Mugello for the normal amateur rider. Improvement was very minimal for advanced and professional riders.

I'm not making same mistake again. I'll wait until or after 2022 before thinking of buying one.

I bought 2012, 2015, 2016 Panigale.
