2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale WallpaperWith 195 horsepower and a dry weight of 362 lbs., Ducati claims its brand-new superbike, the 1199 Panigale, has the most power-to-weight ratio of any motorcycle in its class.
This fact alone shows that the Bologna factory has created yet another superbike that will be the force to reckon with, both on real-world streets and race tracks across the globe.But its not the only thing that makes the 1199 Panigale a force throughout the superbike worlkd – the 1199, which is also available in an upgraded “S” version and the exclusive “Tricolore,” features a non-trellis Monocoque frame, eight levels of traction control and three rider modes.And the Superquadro L-twin Desmo also features much technology directly from MotoGP, such as race-derived pistons and vacuum die-casted crankcases using Vacural technology.And as for styling, well the pictures speak for themselves. And for fans of Ducati superbikes, nothing can be sexier than seeing one of these machines on the track, such as the wallpaper above.For a preview of the 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale, click here.

Hello everyone and welcome once again to Motos and Friends, the weekly podcast brought to you by Ultimate Motorcycling. My name is Arthur Coldwells.
Motos and Friends is brought to you by the awesome Yamaha YZF-R7. The R7 is an amazing supersport machine that is comfortable too! Check out the YZF-R7 at your local Yamaha dealer, or of course at YamahaMotorsports.com.
In this week’s first segment, Senior Editor Nic de Sena goes to the Yamaha MT-10 launch. I have to say, the R1-derived MT-10 is one of my all time favorite street bikes. It’s the perfect balance of instant, usable power, crammed into an agile yet stable chassis. All that is built into an incredibly easy-to-ride package. And I’m not even going to mention it’s ability to wheelie… The latest MT-10 has had some upgrades, so I’m very curious to hear what Nic thinks.
For our second segment this week I chat with Paul Jayson—aka The Motorcycle Broker. Paul has been restoring, collecting, and selling investment grade motorcycles and cars for several decades, and his knowledge and passion for the art of motorcycling seems pretty much unrivaled.
Paul’s quest for total authenticity and insistence on a breathtaking level of detail is incredible. Actually, one of his restorations—a classic MV Agusta—won recently at Salon Privé.
Paul’s take on how the motorcycle market developed globally, and where it’s going, I found fascinating. You can visit Paul’s website at TheMotorcycleBroker.co.uk.
From all of here at Ultimate Motorcycling, we hope you enjoy this episode!
