Ducati 1199 | Bayliss Laps Yas Marina Circuit (Video)


2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale Video

During a recent press launch for the 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, three-time World Superbike Champion Troy Bayliss was on hand for some testing.

Bayliss piloted the 195-horsepower 1199 around the Yas Marina Circuit along with the Italian Motorcycle Manufacturer’s Tech Director Andrea Forni.

While on the track, Bayliss tested the Panigale on two different Pirelli tires – the Diablo Supercrosa SP versions, and the SC2 compound that will be used by the 2012 Superstock 1000 FIM Cup riders.

Attached above is some footage of Bayliss aboard the all-new Ducati superbike; for a preview of the machine, click here.
