So given the desperate need to clean up the rear of this beauty, I've have been searching for various options and brainstorming my own. Mounting the plate in between the two exhaust cans is not a possibility unless you were to cut you license plate down (something that may give cops or even meter maids an excuse to write you a ticket). Again I would not suggest this option and forget about it if you have those huge European plates lol.

There are a lot of options being released out there in terms of fender eliminators and again feel free to post new ones your come across. That's the name of the game here. Just trying to let everyone know of the options available.

-- New Rage Cycles (NRC): Cleans up the tail nicely with a set of turn signals mounting under the headlight. The downside is the plate mount is #1 a separate purchase, and #2 only available as a swingarm mount which is not for everyone.

-- Evotech Performance (UK): From my experience they tend to be more conservative with their designs but they keep it clean and simple. They have included some heat deflector plates/shields on theirs given the proximity to the exhausts. Not a bad idea but not sure if that's really necessary as plenty of air should be moving around the rear end of the bike.

-- Evotech (Italy): Looks a little bigger and not as clean as the Evotech Performance kit. Also seems to incorporate some heat deflecting plate.

-- Misc. German Fender Eliminator 1: Looks clean and priced right compared to some of these other manufacturers.

-- Misc. German Fender Eliminator 2: Looks more tailored to the European license plates but worth a look anyway.

-- Misc. German Fender Eliminator 3: Again looks to made for the European plates but worth a mention.

The Futurismoto eliminator for the Panigale V4 is brilliant. I emailed the guy about making one for the 950 but no response yet. He is a one man operation so very busy. Not optimistic that he will ever offer one for the 950. So far there is nothing out there I would buy for my 950 SP. I have the full Termi exhaust so normal turn signals will not fit. The Shift-Tech is interesting but no license plate light built in. They say it come with one but it may be an afterthought. I am willing to wait for something better.

On another note I emailed Bursig to ask whether the 939 setup would work on the 950. They did not know but are sending my a 939 adaptor to let me check. I like using the Bursig stand as it helps me fit two motorcycles in the garage better.

If you're referring to the fender eliminator offered on Shift-Tech, this is the NRC kit that is available as a turn signal purchase, swingarm plate mount (which as far as I know has a plug and play license plate light), or both. This NRC kit is available from a lot of retailers.


In regards to the Bursig do keep us updated on that. I have the stand and was uing it with my SF848. It's a great stand!

Just out of curiosity I checked to see if a USA sized license plate would clear the Termi full exhaust muffler if the plate was mounted right under the tail section and it does fit. So something like the Futurismoto design would work. His part for the Panigale V4s is a machined aluminum part that incorporates the turn signals and license plate light with the license bracket right underneath. I am not going to get a fender eliminator kit until something like that is available.

Since you have the full Termi single you could use the NRC tail tidy for the 939. If you want to run turn signals though you may try the Evotech 939 tail tidy and the shorter turn signals sold with the Termi kit for the 939. I have a new set if you want them. Shorter & smaller than OEM & plug and play. The NRC kit is clean with a nice led plate light & a very legal looking angle. I blew a fuse & got pulled over for no taillight at night by a very by the book Redondo Beach officer & he said nothing about the intergrated turn signals. I used the stock side reflectors to make it look a little more “stock”

Great suggestion with the NRC kit. I did not realize they had a kit that mounted the plate right under the tail section.
Thanks! I ordered this with the standard plate bracket:

Update but no resolution yet. The NRC kit for the 939 is not plug and play for the 950 as the undertail is done differently on the 950 (noted in an earlier post by midnightmethane). I saw a couple of pics of a custom bracket made for this kit to adapt it to the 950 from a UK site, but at this point I am waiting. Because I just love to spend money I also ordered the Evotech kit for the 950. I may end up doing a mix and match, using the NRC kit for the turn signals and the Evotech kit for the attachment to the undertail, the plate holder, and the plate light. Won't know until I start doing it.

Bursig stand. Bursig was kind enough to send me an adapter for the 939 and this is also not plug and play. The top mount is the same as the 939, but the lower mount is different. I was able to use the 939 part if I added a 9mm spacer, but I can't see anything like that being suitable for a kit. Also at this point the stand does not quite get the front wheel off the ground. Close but no cigar. I have the 950 SP and the fork travel is a bit more than the 950 so that might be the difference. I sent Bursig pics so hopefully they can design something better for the 950. EDIT- Patrick from Bursig USA gave me adjustment advice to get the front tire off the ground and now both tires are off the ground. Just a minor adjustment.

I have the Evotech for my 939 and I think it looks really clean especially paired with Rizoma Action LED signals. Packing the wiring in was work as not much will fit under the tail tidy.

Can you cut up the stock mount to use the part with the three holes that mounts to the undertail & then mount the NRC to that? I almost did that with my 939’as I wanted to hide the wires but I ended up happy with wrapping them with electrical tape & zip tie get them behind the plate.

I should have my Evotech Performance ail Tidy within the next few days. That's a clean enough option for me and I will pair it with the Ducati Performance LED turn signals. I think it will retain a clean factory look. I'll be sure to post some pictures after the install.

OK I finished my NRC/Evotech frankenstein tail tidy. I was hoping to just use the Evotech, but with the full Termi there is no room for the right turn signal even with the smaller LED Ducati Signals. I used the NRC turn signal bar and drilled a couple of holes and bolted it to the top of the main Evotech mount. The OEM license plate light bolts nicely to the Evotech mount. So I used the NRC turn signal bar, the main Evotech mounting bracket, and the OEM license plate light which the Evotech mount is designed to use. The main issue was routing the wires so that the OEM under tail plastic cover would fit properly. I probably would not recommend going this route as it is pricey. Better to wait for NRC to come out with a kit for the 950. Anyway, my project came out looking pretty clean./Users/dflowers/Desktop/IMG_0557.jpeg

Looks clean

I ordered the tail tidy from Italo SHop in Germany.
I mailed them before the three are the same, just other options for indicators.

1) Without indicator
2) For OEM indicators
3) With mini indicators

More pictures will follow when mounted :)

Highsider tail tidy from Italo-shop mounted. See attached pictures.
Still need to do something with the signaling. The left one is getting a little bit hot. I can't mount the bar at the higest postion, it hits the termignoni..
I got the option where you can use the original signals to but don't realy like to use them
