New to this forum but not new to riding. I've been riding for 13 years now and been loving every minute of it. I am currently riding a 1199 panigale. The valve adjustment service is coming up so I am looking to hop on a new bike before paying for that major service. Caught a glipse of the Panigale V4 during eicma and fell in love. Ever since the desmosedici I have been fascinated with the v4. Many would say get a Aprilla but one would argue the craftsmanship. THey have a few kinks to work out if you ask me. The desmosidici is now valued at $90k for a decent one. Just can't justify the cost of a apreciated second hand bike, just not worth it for me. Looking forward to chatting with you guys!
