Heat gun

Tried mine today, very tough, used a 3 foot cheater and with a flat and the rear brake applied it wouldn't budge. Used my cheap heat gun, heated for about 5 minutes evenly around the nut, then used my 1/2" drive bar only, tapped it with a hammer near te socket while applying pressure to the bar (mimics an impact if you don't have one- just be careful and keep an eye on the socket to make sure it keeps square). After hitting it about 10 times, dropped the hammer, used full leverage on the bar and it came off easy. The heat gun was the key for me! Thanks for the tips all

The service manual says to put the bike in 1st gear, just an FYI.

230nm = 170ft/lb of torque

Personally 230 nm is too much . I set my wrench at around 190 nm seems plenty .

that absolutely goes against everything I've ever been told about taking off the nut, I've always been told specifically to have the bike in neutral so you stress the driveline, and in my experience the wheels are torqued way past spec from the factory.

Impact wrench best thing in the world to get a fussy nut off.

Impact gun did mine easily as well - I didn't own one so I added 1 to the tool box

1199 Panigale's : CounterClockwise to loosen, clockwise to tighten.

MVAgusta's do it the opposite direction: Clockwise to loosen and counterclockwise to tighten.

You were actually tightening it more by doing it in the clockwise direction! WRONG!
