Overview

Superbike Essence

The track as a test bench, the stopwatch as an indisputable judge. For us victories and pole positions mean only one thing: the ability to build increasingly better street bikes. Because in Borgo Panigale competition and mass production are so close that they coexist. Technology, materials, innovative – and sometimes “visionary” – ideas give rise to unique motorcycles. Like the 959 Panigale, which incorporates the DNA and spirit of winning Superbikes to a practical level never seen before.

Concept

Perfect balance

Power and lightness. Performance and control. The 959 Panigale achieves the perfect balance of these elements. The power of the 955 cc twin cylinder Superquadro and the exclusive monocoque frame create a unique mix of performance and ease of riding. Lightweight, easy to handle and controllable thanks to the technical equipment like the Brembo monobloc brakes with Bosch ABS, the slipper clutch, the advanced and adjustable suspensions and all the control and management electronics.

Design

Symbiosis of technique and design

Born from a tradition that has seen many Ducati models win the most important design awards, including the prestigious Compasso d’Oro, the Panigale family has always been an example of style. The LED light emits an immediately recognisable light signature, the headlight fairing optimises the aerodynamic protection and airflow to the engine, while the tail guard split in two parts makes the back even more aggressive.

Engine

The Superquadro engine

The twin-cylinder Superquadro on the 959 Panigale is an integral part of the chassis as well as being the desmodromic heart of the bike. 157 hp at 10,500 rpm and a torque of 107.4 Nm at 9,000 rpm are numbers worthy of a Superbike, which on the 959 Panigale are managed not only by an advanced chassis but also by a top-of-the-line technical package.

Technology

Performance, agility and control

The 955 Panigale uses all the Ducati technology to provide a perfect blend of racing performance and safety and comfort on the road. The standard motorcycle features the Bosch ABS 9MP, the two-channel latest-generation system that provides combined braking with anti lift-up function for the rear wheel so as to guarantee not only a reduced stopping distance, but also greater stability under braking

Design

New Corse livery

The lines of the new 959 Panigale Corse are enhanced by a two-colour livery, white mixing with the classic Ducati red, which in this case is matt like on the Desmosedici MotoGP thus making the bike immediately recognisable.

Chassis

Öhlins suspensions

This exclusive version of the new 959 Panigale is equipped with premium Öhlins suspensions. The fork is an Öhlins NIX30 with a 43 mm diameter, multi-adjustable with TiN treatment of the legs, while the shock absorber is a multi-adjustable Öhlins TTX36. The suspensions are completed with the steering damper, also by Öhlins and adjustable.
