2012 Ducati 1199 Superbike
Stunningly revolutionary, the 2012 Superbike 1199 Panigale features what Ducati claims is the most powerful production twin-cylinder motor in a cast aluminum monocoque frame that attaches directly to the Superquadro engine’s cylinder heads.
The features list is seemingly endless, with Ride By Wire, Ducati Electronic Suspension, Ducati Traction Control, Anti-lock Braking System 9ME, Engine Brake Control, Ducati Quick Shift, and a Ducati Data Analyzer+.
There are three fully customizable Riding Modes and three Power Modes, ranging from 120 horsepower with smooth throttle response to World Superbike-ready 195 horsepower with direct throttle response.
And the 1199 Panigale is offered in three versions – the standard, the S model and the Tricolore S.
