Most of us are familiar with the Hitler video meme wherein the english subtitles are changed to humorous banter completely unrelated to the Nazi regime. In this parody video, Hitler wants a GSXR 650 or 1000 for his first bike, and his compadres try to talk sense to him about starting with something smaller and, well, Hitler throws a temper tantrum (naturally). “I want my 180 wheels!

The lack of exposed wires and cables, the cafe racer style tail section that slopes into the existing lines of the Panigale bodywork… these are things to notice.
