1199 handle bars

Why is it that my left handle bar looks longer than the right? Any other panigales like this or is mine like this because of the previous owner?

its the same length, there's just more things on the right handle bar to cover the bar up (On/off switch, throttle body housing). On the left side, there's only the light switch.

The grip doesn't look like its on the bar correctly, like it needs to be slid farther up on the bar.

Take an allen wrench to it and posistion the bar how you like. You can compare the right and left with how much they protrude toward the center of the bike, its a better measure than looking at the other side.
