The new Ducati 1299 Panigale takes the additional 87cc of its Superquadro 90° V-Twin to produce 205bhp @ 10,500rpm (up from 195bhp@10,700rpm) and 106.7lb-ft @ 8750rpm (up from 98.1lb-ft @ 9000rpm). Weight stays the same, at 190.5kg, while the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) brings Cornering ABS and Wheelie Control. A quickshifter is fitted as standard, along with Traction Control and Engine Brake Control.
The Panigale R is the homologated base for the company’s World Superbike machings, but maintains an 1198cc capacity, making 205bhp @ 11,550rpm and 100.5lb-ft @ 10,250rpm. A lithium battery helps bring wet weight down to 184kg.
