The Ducati 1199 Panigale was a 1,198 cc. Ducati sport bike introduced at the 2011 Milan Motorcycle Show. The motorcycle is named after the small manufacturing town of Borgo Panigale.
I have recently purchased a 2017 Ducati 1199 Panigale base model.
The motorcycle itself is amazing. 190 horses in 361lb, 1198cc. Too much horsepower, but in a fun, controllable way. It’s much lighter than its predecessors, and smaller too. If you put an 1198 next to it, you’ll be amazed how much smaller 1199 is. Does not feel like a big bike at all. It is actually much easier to control than its predecessors – 999, 1098 and 1198. Computer manages all that power quiet nicely when in lower gears. (It’s surprisingly easy to handle when in 1st or 2nd.) Once the speed increases, computer backs off and lets the horses kick in more.
