First let's start off by saying this : I bought a 959 Panigale
Cause it's the bike I wanted so don't bother saying ( why didn't you just buy a 1299 ) I would have bought one if that's was the bike I wanted ...

So that being said : Tomorrow I start on the venture of converting
My double sided swing arm into a single sided swing ,
The reason for this 1st I love the look of the SSSA
2nd I want to run a bigger tire 3rd and foremost it will look bad *** 😎


Can't wait till its done , the cost isn't bad , and for all the new mods

I love the sssa look and also preferred the middleweight. I'll follow suit without hesitation if it works easily for you.

I'm surprised Ducati doesn't bring the bike out with the SSSA. Then it really would be a mini 1299.


Look forward to seeing your results...

Out of curiosity...what are you trying to achieve with a bigger tire apart from looks?

At the very least you'll have to make a new rear brake line to feed the ABS system... This movie should be interesting!!!

Keep in mind you will most likely be altering the bikes geometry, and probably not for the better. But if it's looks you're going for, then I guess it's all good.

the bikes geometry : it wouldn't be changed so dramatically were an everyday person would notice , but yes it will change a bit maybe not as nimble
but who know's great things happen by just one person trying things no one else wants too ..
