We must define the word "Stock"

"Showroom stock"
"Stock appearing"
"Stock motor"


Different levels of "Stock". I take it you are saying stock unopened engine but bolt-ons and tuning. Because S1000RR do not come off showroom floor breaking 200 RWHP.

Apparently the new Euro4 emissions are supposed to be super restrictive but we'll see. Then again this is not a straight line bike. It was meant to turn and burn. And if all the major magazine reviews are any indication, the electronics on it are the best you can get for the track implementation wise.

Yeah u right. Stock motor. It was on the dyno so likely safe to say it's tuned to some extent.

Yea just wanna be clear about it. Still a great time we are in where 200 RWHP is becoming "the norm"

has a duc EVER been capable of sustaining extended top end speeds without turning itself into a pile of ruined trash?

who is using panigales for topend riding? i have hondas i have put over 10k on ragging the fuck out of them at redline and top end.

what about the desmo?

I think Ducatis are more for bling factor than anything else.

in most cases, they are capable when it comes to agility stuff. but, I am legitimately curious if anyone has ever seen anyone run a ducati for top end stuff for extended periods.

anyone?

Naaaa it probably has less power than they say it has, and it's probably a very delicate machine too with expansive maintenance.




BUT I'd still buy it over any other new bike because it looks amazing and sounds like heaven. If I cared to go fast, that is.
