I wouldn't call that exactly "in the wild". Seems to me like they were testing them at a track or some kind of demo ride.

If these are the same pictures that I saw the other day they are from a dealer familiarization at NOLA. The dealers were invited to come ride the Panigale on the track.

So what, they just zero the odo before selling those to customers as new bikes? Hard to believe they would sell them all as "demo" units or used - quite a few of them in the picture.

3 or rows times maybe 10 bikes. About 30-40 bikes.
They will be sent around the world to different magazines,publications for reviews. They will also be used for other PR days/events. Eventually they will be a write-off as marketing costs.

Yes, that's the dealer familiarization week (Panigale Sales Specialist Academy) down in NOLA.
