I don't understand how you guys are saying the ergos on the 959 are more aggressive then a Daytona 675; They're not! I was able to log just under 3k miles on my 959. The bike feels amazing! I broke mine in riding 200 miles in each of the riding modes (Wet,Sport,Race) once I achieved Race, I never reverted to another mode; The thing is ALIVE in Race! Look, feel, & sound are all there. In my opinion there's no better looking bike offered in the market then the Panigale, & it's been the case since 2011. Fit, & finish is far from subpar, everything is well place, & thought out, except for the mirrors which are hard mounted; I live in NYC, & snapped one off lane splitting. Sound is impressive in stock form, you almost don't need an aftermarket unit, but once you upgrade, it's even more intoxicating, & lustful. I'll agree, under 5-6k rpm, the 959 is not where it wants to be, 8k and above is it's happy zone, you'll be grinning uncontrollably behind your helmet, & might even drib a bit of drool out of pure joy. You might ask "Why didn't you buy another 959 if you loved it so much?" Simple, I already experienced the bike, & life is too short not to try new things. The next move was a Premium S1KRR, but I didn't want to finance, so I opted to buy a D675R outright to hold me off, & cross it off the list.
