I have considered it but will wait to see after I have done a track day.

At the moment I feel the bars are turned into me too much putting my wrists at an angle which eventually causes discomfort. Could do with just pushing them away from the tank a little

That is the problem I am having as well during more casual riding. The 959 has excellent geometry for really aggressive riding. When you drop your elbows in a tuck or are moving from one side of the bike to another very often, it is fantastic.

Casual riding on the road is tough on the wrists because I sit a bit more upright and hence the wrist goes into extension causing pain.

I had speedy moto adj clipons on my 848 and I loved them. You can use the bend to raise them slightly and it makes for really comfy ergos on the street. I am going to also wait till I start tracking this spring before deciding if I will out then on my 959

What did you do about bar ends with the speedy moto clip ons?

Do you think the pani bar ends would fit and could be transferred to the speedy motos?

It seems that the steering damper attachment is also required for this upgrade. Not inexpensive.

Why not just replace the OEM panigale bars with the speedy-moto omni bars? This is the part of the equation that allows for adjustment.

Why do I need to replace the clip on brackets?

https://www.speedymoto.com/products/handle-bars/omni-bars/

Found this: Looks like it won't fit OEM clip-ons.

Fits most 22mm or 7/8" clip-on mounts except pinned offset clip-on mounts such as the OEM Ducati and MV clip-ons. For those applications we suggest the complete system: SPEEDYMOTO Adjustable Clip-ons: 53mm
or SPEEDYMOTO Adjustable Clip-ons: 50mm.

Received confirmation from https://amsducati.com/ that both of these components are required to fit the bars. The stock OEM brackets will not work with omnibars due to a size of the bar being larger than stock diameter.

Update:

I spoke with SpeedyMoto directly. The fellow said the bars will NOT fit the OEM clip-ons and that in his opinion, the panigale is a poor platform for the speedy-moto omnibar/clip-on/ducabike steering damper mount combo.

He said the 959 is hard to improve due to a very narrow adjustment window. Bike frame components, and fairings limit options when the bar position is adjusted. Basically, when you change the bar position, something will hit something else and limit the range of steering travel.

They gave up on trying to find a solution to make the pani more ergonomically tolerable for road use. LOL!

He did say that the stock OEM clip-on can be modified to accept the omnibar if one is willing to enlarge the OEM clip-on by fractions of mm to accept the slightly larger diameter tube.

Bummer.

I just saw an advertisement for Gilles variobars that will fit the 959. My guess is it would not work because of the clearance issues.

That's interesting because as soon as I saw this thread, that was my thought. My ex's '18 R1 had aftermarket bars installed that raised them almost 1" and it was SO much better, but I realized after looking at my panigale that it would be about impossible to pull off.

Also one thing I wonder is: if the bars are a larger diameter, putting grips on must be a real pain!
