A celebration of excellence
In perfect keeping with tradition, the 1199 Panigale S is decked out in a Tricolour livery to celebrate "Made in Borgo Panigale" technological excellence and mark the start of a new Ducati Superbike era. Completing the bike set-up are the Ducati performance exhaust, ABS and a device that has already gained cult status: the all new telemetry, housed in the latest-generation DDA+, which also utilises GPS signals.
The beauty of speed translated into design. The pure racing spirit is instantly channelled into the rider just by gripping the 1199 Panigale's handlebar. The front headlamp disappears into the air scoops to give a look of no holds-barred competition. While the 1199 Panigale features LEDs for position lights and lamps for the headlights, the S versions and S Tricolore have full LED lighting, a totally new concept for motorcycles. The elegant forms of the saddle and the tail are heightened by the position of the exhaust and by the full LED tail light. Perspectives and lines are designed to attain aesthetic perfection; every one of its components is a true achievement in the integration of engineering and design. Breathtaking, trademark Ducati design. The 1199 Panigale is a bike that conveys power, elegance and agility.
The 1199 Panigale sets a new and extreme standard of reference in the world of superport bikes. The project that brought the 1199 Panigale into being based itself on two seemingly impossible objectives, which have been brilliantly achieved: a 10 kg reduction in weight and a 25 HP increase in power. Its arrival is a milestone in the glorious history of the Ducati Superbike.
