Ducati 899 Panigale
The evolution of a new class of Super Middleweight bikes has been under way for a while. With the introduction of its highly anticipated 899 Panigale, Ducati adds to the growing Supermid genre, providing the thrill of an entry model into the world of premium performance with the refined character of an everyday street bike.
The 899 Panigale replaces the 848 and generates 148hp with a new Superquadro L-twin engine that features a revised bore and stroke for broader power delivery. The super-smooth power unit continues to be a fully stressed member of the innovative, albeit somewhat controversial, monocoque chassis construction. The elimination of a separate steel frame delivers outstanding power-to-weight ratios with a dry weight of 372.5 pounds (169kg).
