Looks like DIY service on that bike is a bit tough. Sitting on the tank!

Because they aren't made by Mitsubishi ? ? ?
Fast mother fucker, but what's impressive is how much stronger it is over the Aprilia, which they overlay a chart in this vid. And it's what, 30-40lbs lighter?
The difference is completely proportional to the Ducati's increased size.
I guess I was thinking about the 1100 Tuono. I'm seeing 46 pounds lighter though?
Aprilia 472 wet and the Pani V4 is 6 pounds heavier than the 420lb wet V2 Pani?
As far as I know, Ducati only lists dry weight. So it's missing brake fluid, oil, coolant, fuel, maybe even the battery. It will likely be in the 440-450lb wet ballpark.
I gotta stop looking at this bike before I do something crazy.
Close - "the bike weighs 386 pounds dry, or 436 pounds wet."
So still 36 pounds lighter than the Aprilia.
It has a lithium battery too, but it's also quite a bit more expensive than the Aprilia which would explain a lot but damn, that's light for an 1100 V4.
Me too, I haven't been this into a sportbike this much for more than 10 years.
foward to 14:00
interesting how suspension tech is evolving for us mortals
any word on demo's avail so far?
i'll really need to try one, they look alike until side to side...
I wonder if it will have the same heat problem?
With twice the cylinders coming out of the back V, I doubt it will be much better.
You never know, there's also twice the surface area for the gases to dissipate. I'm just speculating and being optimistic, but from the looks of the new heat shield there was or is a big issue there.
This is what head work on a Panigale looks like
I have the 1299 service manual downloaded and for fun, I looked at how to remove the engine.
You don't pull the engine from the bike, you pull the bike from the engine.
Yeah, basically. You can see it above, the front monoque is pulled of the front jug and opened up, in that case they have the motor supported on a lift, but the swingarm and rear subframe are still there. I was passing through for something else like "heh, that is interesting".
Definitely a great photo. Look at the size of that piston! I read somewhere it's the largest piston used in a current production motorcycle/car/pickup.
Indeed the super-quarttro was the most extreme twin to even make it into a production motorcycle.
