Panigale vs 1098

I used to own an 1199 Panigale. It was a neat bike but punishing to ride on the street. I recently got a wild hair and decided I needed another fully fared bike. I was originally looking at a 996 or 998 I am now thinking a 1098 might be a great choice. Can someone with experience on the 1098 and the 1199 tell me if the 1098 is as punishing to ride as the 1199? I do not plan on tracking it and will use it just as a toy on the street.

The 1098 clip ons are much lower than the 1199. The 1098 has a more race inspired body position.

Ive ridden an 1199 extensively and own an 1198.

The older bike feels much more raw and almost like it could pull your arms off. The Pani is more refined and has not as harsh of a 'hit' when the throttle is opened with vigor..

Yes, the Pani is faster. But it felt like an R6 to me. After my last ride on a Pani, I was so very happy to swing my leg back over my 'old' 1198S Corse. The smile was big!

So, it depends what you like. I want 'holy fuckin shit' torque and 'right fuckin now' acceleration. The Pani left me feeling cheated...

Both bikes are hot as hell while riding, but I think the Pani generates more heat, therefore it is more unpleasant.

1098s will still want to buck you out of the seat on the road....if i had bad teeth it wouldve shaken them all out. I loved the seating position but still needed adjustable rear sets to stop my hip popping out...Dont know anything about the pani but theres my take... 🙂

Depends on what you consider "punishing" in the ride. The Pani has a lot of heat coming from the central exhaust system, but (as others have already said), the 1098 has a more severe riding position. What bothers you the most?

The bone jarring suspension mainly. Also, the Pani was SO fast I found it unenjoyable below speeds that get you thrown in jail.

I did over 20K miles on my 1098S before it finally broke too many times. I'm on a 959 now and would never, EVER consider going back.

I was going to say, what about an 899/959?

I like the 848, 899 and 959 but I really want the old school dry clutch and lack of electronics.

If it is "old school" you seek, then I'd be looking at a 996 SPS or 998S Final Edition... then the only question would be whether you prefer a Desmoquattro or Testastretta.
