2016 Ducati 1299 Panigale | Buyer's Guide
2016 Ducati 1299 Panigale

Of the three big-bore Panigales, the 1299 Panigale is the so-called plain-wrap version. Primarily, that’s because it lacks the active suspension of the Panigale S and the ultra-light weight of the Panigale R.

What the 1299 Panigale does have, however, is a Superquadro powerplant that produces an astounding 107 ft/lbs of torque and 205 horsepower. Suspension is still high quality with fully adjustable Marzocchi forks and a Sachs shock with adjustable linkage.

Brembo Monoblock M50 calipers up front are truly serious brakes, and the Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tires are ready for shredding on the track.
