2012 – 2014

DUCATI 1199 PANIGALE

In 2012, Ducati turned its back on tradition and introduced a motor with chain-driven cams. Its all-new Superquadro V-twin engine boasted the highest power-to-weight and torque-to-weight figures of any production bike, as well as a simply gargantuan 112mm bore. Housed in a monocoque chassis with an integrated airbox instead of Ducati’s traditional trellis type, the Superquadro was linked to the kind of computing capabilities NASA could only dream of when they stuck Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon. Traction control, wheelie control, ABS, datalogging, rider modes, a quickshifter and engine braking control all appeared on the Panigale model, alongside a TFT dash.

►DID YOU KNOW? The Panigale’s swingarm is actually 39mm longer than the unit on the 1198.
