2016 Ducati Superbike 1299 Panigale S

Pumping out 205 horses and a monstrous 107 ft/lbs of torque, the 2016 Ducati 1299 Panigale S demands your full attention. The good news is, the Panigale S is also willing to look after you.

The electronics package on the 1299 Panigale S rivals that of a World Superbike, with the Bosch Inertial Platform running things. The BIP features an Inertial Measurement Unit that keeps tabs on the Panigale S’s lean angle, as well as its fore and aft pitch.

This information allows the ABS, wheelie control and Öhlins Smart EC suspension to work as computer-smart as possible, allowing the rider to reach his ultimate potential. The ability of data acquistion means that you can fine-tune the performance and behavior of the Panigale S to professional levels of accuracy.
