Weight over the front !!

To illustrate ride a monster 1200. Ride hard with the seat in its low and high position and the bike handles very markedly differently being much less 'loose' with the seat higher , giving more confidence and feel/ stability from the front end.

Same applies to any sports orientated machine.

I Ride: 15 Pani R ( I weep a little sometimes )
short rider here but using the race seat which is taller than stock. I like the tall seat for less heat and better outright control of the bike, including leaning. YMMV

Coming from a GSX-R, the Panigale is definitely less comfortable on the upper body with a pretty long reach to the bars. There probably is more leg room though, so for taller riders that may make it more comfortable on the lower body.
