1299 PANIGALE S

Where technology is a step ahead

£21,995

Overview

Bring the Superquadro engine with an unprecedented 116mm bore 205 hp of pure adrenaline and 145 Nm of stunning torque together with the semi-active suspension and electronic steering dampegoverned by the Öhlins Smart EC system and technology takes a giant leap forward. The 1299 Panigale S stands apart with its full LED headlights and carbon fibre mudguard, excelling with auxiliary handlebar buttons and forged wheels. Undoubtedly the most thrilling superbike on the market.

Concept

The new Superquadro engine is ingeniously incorporated into the Monoscocca chassis, providing the perfect platform from which to deliver its incredible 205 horsepower. The underside of the fuel tank, when mounted, seals the top of the frame which then becomes the airbox. Innovative engineering solutions such as these are used throughout the Panigale line, and take the dry weight of the 1299 Panigale/S down to 166.5 kg while the Panigale R sits at an incredible 162 kg. The total focus on light weight gives each Panigale a power-to-weight ratio that sets the reference in its class. Combined with advanced electronic controls and the finest brakes, suspension, and other components, this creates an incredibly potent package that takes riders to the very apex of performance. Precision riding, at the highest level, with the character and exhilaration that only a Ducati Superbike can provide.

Engine

The new Superquadro’s bore/stroke ratio of 1.91:1 sets an extreme example of the power-maximizing “oversquare” architecture used in the world’s most advanced racing engines. A short-stroke crankshaft and enormous pistons combined with large Desmodromically-actuated valves allow the Superquadro to breathe freely at high rpm, while a 1285cc combustion chamber ensures the ample torque that has made so many enthusiasts fall in love with Ducati’s signature L-twin power.

Chassis

The 1299 Panigale S features the world-exclusive Ohlins Smart EC semi-active suspension system. Consisting of an NIX-30 front fork, a TTX rear shock, and a steering damper, this system interfaces with the Bosch Inertial Platform and dynamically responds to changing road and riding conditions, allowing the best possible suspension performance and total motorcycle control. It operates in one of two modes: Fixed, which is non-active and allows the rider to set specific levels of front and rear compression and rebound, along with steering damper tension. These levels are maintained constant until the rider changes them again, exactly as a traditionally adjusted suspension system. Alternately, there is the Event Based mode, which is semi-active and allows the rider to select levels of suspension “behavior” ranging from Hard to Soft. In this mode, the system then dynamically adjusts compression, rebound, and damper tension in response to ride conditions, maintaining the overall “behavior” previously selected by the rider.

Equipment

The 1299 Panigale S has a front mudguard made in the highest-quality carbon fibre, to accentuate its high-technology and premium nature. Light and stiff, carbon fibre saves precious grams of weight compared to an equivalent part in plastic; while at the same time making the 1299 Panigale’s style even more aggressive.
