As on the 1199 Panigale, the 899 Panigale's fork legs are set at an increased distance between centres, typical of racing bikes in the Superbike World Championship. Thanks to this detail, even the brake discs have a greater width when mounted to allow optimal cooling even during the hardest use. The 899 Panigale features a 43mm Showa Big Piston Fork, which provides damping under lower-pressure conditions as compared to a traditional fork. This gives optimal front-end feeling to enter corners with the utmost precision, with high resistance to diving when the brakes are applied. The rear suspension consists of a fully adjustable Sachs rear monoshock, laterally mounted for ease of adjustment access and connected via progressive linkage for the best rear suspension response under road and track conditions.
