Featured 959 Picked Up New Bike

Discussion in 'Panigale 899 / 959 / 1199 / 1299 / V2 / V4' started by Stewarty, Sep 21, 2020.

  1. Hi guys, sold my 1198 a few months ago and was swithering on what to replace it with and have went with the 959. Looking to fit a 1299 system or US 959 when I get the chance. Was out yesterday on it and very happy overall with the bike as a package.

  3. Looks nice
  4. Do you not miss the grunt of the 1198?
  5. Not particularly mate, before you knew it you would be doing ridiculous speeds. I know the 959 doesn't have the same grunt but haven't found it lacking in slightest. It's a better road bike in my opinion(as sports bikes go) and enjoy having to rev it a bit longer. Still early days though and have only put 200 miles on it since Friday but I love it.

  14. Yeah, seems a very good balance so far
  15. Not me bud, last bike was an 1198
  16. I followed one at Donington on my V4S. Although I had significantly more power, I was no quicker. They seem very sorted bikes .... and quick!! :):upyeah:

  17. At least people have stopped 'pulling the trigger' and swerving 'poh/poh and 5-0' ....

    PS, nice new bike mate, enjoy ...
