i take my fast riding to the track...no cops there...except on other bikes . i like to think of it as 'holy shit this is drop dead gorgeous" red. this is my second duc and so far it's the best sportbike ive ever owned (and im old and have been riding since i was five...ive had a LOT of sportbikes). absurd amounts of power everywhere on the tach. butter smooth power delivery. handles lighter than my wifes cbr600rr. the electronics do their job without getting in the way. and one of the things that got me to take it for a test drive in the first place...its actually comfortable to ride around town. the 10r was comfortable, but i wasnt a fan of the inconsistent power delivery, the fact it was anemic everywhere on the tach unless you have it pinned and the fact that it steers like an aircraft carrier. my 2005 10R was soooo much more fun to ride. the previous panigales were monsters on the track but sucked around town. this thing...at least so far...is rock solid perfect. my only complaints with it thus far is its a ball baker and they put the side stand in a weird place that you have to sorta kick out with your heel. i havent had it long enough to fully break it in or take it to the track yet...but i cant wait.COP MAGNET RED. Enjoy. My friend said the same thing when he bought his one and only Ducati several years ago. He regretted owning it and had many problems with it. Hope your experience will be different.
I'm sure you'll get a better answer but I know the valve inspection was moved way out since hte first panigale came out. I think at some point it's been 15k-ish and might even be higher now on the v4.you still have to do major service every 7k miles? that is what kept me away from going with a duc this time around. I like the single sided swing arm and overall looks of the new V4 but the older 1199 I rode cooked my nuts big time and I ride exclusively so daily ball bake wasn't a good thought
