Hye.. I definitely need help !! I ride 2012 M796 for atleast 1yr. Mostly for commute to work & some pleasure in weekend. But after i have 2 minor accident, i just think that i need to change my bike. i consider that M796 is too aggresive for my place to ride and im thinking of change to panigale 899. 1. Are panigale 899 is aggressive like M796 (coz its have a lot of safety package) ie more manageble
2. Riding position of panigale 899 comfortable for riding 3-4hours ?
3. Modifying M796, help the bike more manageble ie change to 14t sproc
Please help me !! Thank you very much !

I wouldn't say the 899 is super comfortable but it depends what you are use to

best thing to do is to go sit on one in person

I'm more comfortable on my 899 than my Diavel. On the Panigale you can support more of your weight on your legs. I'm short so maybe that helps.

I just traded in my M796 to Panigale 899 so I might able to shed some light on your questions. The Panigale 899 is certainly more aggressive than the M796 - no question about it. However, it feels so much better ("safer" if you wish) at the corners that with all its aggressiveness I would rather ride the 899 20%-30% faster that my riding the M796.
2) You will never ride 3 to 4 hours straight on the 899. With its unbelievable fuel consumption you are lucky to ride 1 and a half hour straight. BUT, regardless of how long the fuel tank will take you, the seating position is not comfortable like the M796.
I felt that I overgrew the M796 and bought the 899 and i am loving it!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks ronen. After reading your writing make me more excited to change to 899. Most people said 899 much more aggresive, but i want to know the feeling of riding it. You make me happy !!
