The Apex of Performance

Breathtakingly stylish, the new 1299 Panigale leaves no room for compromise when it comes to technical excellence. Such is the case of the new Superquadro engine with an unprecedented 116mm bore, 205 hp of pure adrenaline and 145 Nm of stunning torque. State-of-the-art electronics ensure maximum control with the Bosch Inertial Platform. Ducati Quick Shift, both fast and precise, even for downshift.   The new 1299 Panigale, your deepest desire.

Engine

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 the lightweight feature 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, it 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.

Chassis

The Panigale’s Monoscocca chassis forms its structural backbone – compact, rigid, lightweight, and multifunctional. Cast in aluminium, it attaches at its rear directly to the heads of the Superquadro engine and contains the steering head and bearings at its front. In addition to performing the function of a traditional frame, the Monoscocca also serves as the airbox and in this way significantly contributes to lowering the overall weight of the motorcycle. Housed inside it are the air filter, throttle bodies and fuel circuit complete with injectors, making it truly unique and a revolutionary advancement in the world of traditional motorcycle construction

Bosch Inertial Platform

The 1299/S Panigale and Panigale R use the Bosch Inertial Platform, which is centered around an Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU). The IMU constantly monitors the motorcycle’s lean angle and fore/aft pitch, interfacing with the ABS, DWC, and on the 1299 Panigale S, the Ohlins Smart EC suspension – ensuring that these systems operate at maximum effectiveness regardless of the motorcycle’s position.
