    Soft Grips Panigale and Carbon Parts

    Anyone have any advice on some soft bar grips for a panigale?

    Also anyone have any contacts or websites for carbon fibre parts at decent prices?

    Carbon bits belong on a Panigale S or R. Anything less you may as well use 3M carbon wrap.

    Thanks mate, I was looking more into the "bling" carbon bits like exhaust shield, tyre hugger and the like.

    It never hurt anyone to ask for a better price

    No. The base model and the S would benefit in equal measure with carbon wheels (as one example). Remember the S
    has the same motor/same output with the key differences being LED headlights, electronic suspension, front mudguard
    and different wheels.

    Domino make a variety of grips which look cool in opinion.

    FullSix make a lot of carbon fibre parts for the Panigale in a few different spec ranges (Sportline, Streetline etc.).

    I would advise against a carbon fibre exhaust shield (unless you ride sparingly) as it will not stay looking mint for long
    given the epic levels of heat the rear loop pumps out. I would also advice against fake carbon fibre on any bike based on principle
    (but of course, each to his own).
    Spiral out, keep going...

    Stu if I were me (and I am) then I'd be flicking my base Panigale and picking up an S before I started adding expensive carbon bits. Dollar for dollar I reckon the electronic suspension, LED headlights, lighter wheels etc add more both in wank factor and riding enjoyment. No worries if you disagree

    The R needs the carbon to combat the smaller engine capacity.
