A New Panigale Track Bike Build

Anyone else building a new track bike for this year? I've completely deconstructed my 899 Panigale track bike down to basically nothing and building it back up from scratch in a completely different direction this year. Looks like I might even get the chance to race it a few times this year if everything works out as planned. Here's my photoshop mock-up of the paint scheme I'm thinking of. The fuel tank is raw aluminum, which is kind of hard to show in a mockup and the white paint will actually be a pearl white to hopefully blend better with the tank. The wheels are actually Carrozzeria forged aluminum red anodized wheels, not stock 899 wheels. And it won't have mirrors! ha ha!

Should be a fun project, only 2 months left to complete it before our first track weekend!

Here's my cryptic answer or non-answer: This bike will not be 899cc displacement..... So maybe you can still get some vicarious thrills?
Thanks from Stw

Sounds intriguing.. Are you going to stuff an 1199 engine into the 899???

Go the other way and make it an 848 so it's legal in 600 classes?
Thanks from Phl and Chaotic

All that matters is it LOOKS like an 899! Ha ha! It will only race in the Supertwins class if I get to do the CCS round at Brainerd that I'm shooting for in June. Plus our local TrackAddix Superbike TT series.

EDIT: I just realized it's eligible for CCS Formula 40 too!
