Panigale Suspension Problems/Solutions..

Unfortunately there is at present no solutions to the handling problems with the Panigale. I have had mine for 10k miles and have had consultations with various Ohlins specialists, Four different springs set on F and P all to no avail. Until Ducati comes out with a solution for the rear end you can forget about going fast unless its glassy smooth. And its not just me.. Anybody that tries to ride one fast is dissapointed.

In my day, trolling actually meant something.

Wait till you start a real one up and actually ride it like it is supposed to be rode.

The solution is to and learn how to ride.

Wow, you talked to Ohlins specialists? Then we really are out of options. Mods, shut down the site. Except leave the classifieds open so we can all sell our bikes.

But no one will be able to ride at all as the 1199 is better than pretty much better than any other bike out there

I have only been riding my Panigale on glass since I have had it so I can confirm your observation is 100% correct, it does have excellent handling particularly when ridden fast.

I Ride: Ducati 1098R Bayliss + 1199 S Tricolre
Have ridden my Tricolre to Italy and back with a pillion, to Assen GP and back on my own have done plenty of miles on UK country roads, not what you would classify as smooth ? and have had a couple of track days, so a pretty good variation of surfaces and speeds and I can honestly say the bike has behaved really really well and coped with anything I have thrown at it including my clumsy braking and accelerating when I try to go fast on track !! so not really sure why some people are finding the handling such an issue ?

Ahh! There's your problem. An "S" model with Ohlins and electronic gizmo stuff.

You should upgrade to a base. They have Marzocchis. Problem solved.

(or as they say "Base is Best")
Thanks from Phl, Stw, Cobra700 and 2 others
