I agree with jdr racer- The Panigales are vtwins but, being a 90degree vtwin...this gives perfect primary balance...so you dont get any High frequency vibrations at highspeed. Inline fours need counterbalancers to react against vibrations. So Inline fours do give a high frequency buzz that some people call "They Get The Tingles" on the hands after riding some inline fours. The Ducatis dont have any..they are smooth and maybe smoother than some inline fours.
Any mechanical engineer will point out that a 90degree vtwin has perfect primary balance...and a 6cylinder inline engine gives the smoothest delivery of the in-line design.
Check your clip-on pinch bolts, retighten them if they are a bit loose. I have no issues with vibrations at all. Just hard starting issues.
