What do you want to know about the Panigale V4?

The Hottest Bikes of 2018 at EICMA
With steaming hangovers from a night of debauchery in Milan (thanks Tom), we rolled into the EICMA show feeling like a pair of Honda Deauvilles on a superbike grid. We needn’t have worried though, as the world’s largest moto-only show didn’t disappoint – a blend of fresh lines, wiz-bang... Read more
