959 PANIGALE

The perfect balance

FROM £13,795

Overview

Fitted with a new, more powerful engine with slipper clutch, ready to unbridle a racing attitude. Built on an improved chassis integrating a monocoque frame, together with fully adjustable suspension. Poised between road and track, between pure performance, technology and effortless handling, the 959 Panigale sports a breathtaking design. The ideal adrenaline-booster in the form of a Ducati superbike.

Engine

The engine has been designed as a structural element of the frame. As such, its architecture has been completely reviewed to ensure the best design in terms of structure, weight distribution and robustness.

The cylinders, at a 90° angle to each other, are mounted on the crankcase to produce a 21° angle between the front cylinder and the horizontal plane. This allows the engine to sit forward, optimizing the distribution of weight between the front and rear ends and achieving the perfect position of the fastening points of the cylinder heads into the monocoque chassis of the 959
Panigale.
Chassis

The 959 Panigale’s chassis follows the innovative Monoscocca concept: different components have been integrated to give shape to a single compact and lightweight element. This monocoque structure in cast aluminium for increased strength uses the Superquadro engine as a structural element, forming the motorcycle’s lightweight core.
The rear of the monocoque frame is fixed directly to the cylinder head, and at its front is the steering tube. In addition to performing the traditional function of a frame,the monocoque also acts as an airbox. Housed inside it, in addition to the air filter, are the throttle bodies and fuel circuit complete with injectors; and the bottom of the steel tank becomes its cover when mounted in place.

Equitment

The Bosch 9MP ABS standard on the 959 Panigale is a latest-generation system with two channels that performs combined braking with control of rear wheel lifting to guarantee not only shorter braking distances, but also the greatest stability during braking. Specifically intended for sport use, the 9MP ABS offers three levels of operation, each associated with a Riding Mode; in the Race mode, the system works only on front discs to allow advanced track braking techniques for expert riders.
