Lightbulb If You Were An Owner..........

Think back to when you first got your Panigale. What was the first thing you decided to add to your bike?

*Im guessing first thing to go was that monstrosity of a license plate bracket / rear turn signal assembly.

Now think of it as you being the owner of a store that has the ability to carry every possible aftermarket (and DP) performance part imaginable. What would you want to carry as an "in stock" item for all those with the same bike wanting it right away as an in demand item?

Go ahead and select the first item which you purchased for your bike as a mod and use the above thought process as a guide - what item should a shop have plenty of for us 1199 folks?

As stated above, if everyone felt it was the fender eliminator assembly then I guess you could roll with the second item. (I made it to permit two choices)

**If there was something not on this list then feel free to list it in your comments. We have all had to wait for something to be shipped from the manufacturer to our distributor of choice, so I was just curious here.

IMHO, the MUSTS are either the race or comfort seat, the fender eliminator/tail tidy and the Evotech lower radiator guard. Everything else is nice and you'd sell plenty of them (esp shock guards and clutch covers), but I think the seat and tail go first for most people. I have some pics of my SF lower radiator that you can show people that are on the fence about the lower radiator guard. That should sell plenty of them.

My apologies... I selected a few things as first items.

I hope this doesn't throw your research out too far.

This has kinda been done, you may want to reveiw this thread. The brand is as important as the mod. i.e., which tail tidy...

"In Order, What upgrades to buy?
Ok, I already have the comfort seat and dont want to spend money on pipes, so as far as CF, what order do you think i should start buying for my base 2013? I just ordered the lower CF radiator cover, gonna have to buy piece by piece, not sure what i should get next, im thinking about the CF key hole cover, but then not sure how it will look before i get the $400+ air vent CF.... Suggestions? "

The seat was the first thing I told them to put on before it even left the dealership. Tail Tiddy was just another added extra. I would say a close second would be the exhaust but this is just me here, the stock sounds damned sexy compared to what my stock 848 sounded like.
