Post The eagerly awaited 1199 Panigale arrives at Ducati dealerships throughout the UK.



The eagerly awaited 1199 Panigale arrives at Ducati dealerships throughout the UK.

Ducati dealers throughout the UK have now taken delivery of their 1199 Panigale demonstrators as this eagerly awaited Superbike arrives on UK shores.

Customers will now have the opportunity to try for themselves this incredible motorcycle that has so far lived up to the hype and indeed exceeded the expectations of the lucky few who have so far ridden it.

The 1199 Panigale has set the benchmark for Superbikes due to its high tech engine which can claim to be the most powerful twin-cylinder production engine on the planet and forms an integral part of an innovative monocoque chassis. The chassis and the engine combine to deliver an astonishing 195hp and 165kg*, producing the highest motorcycle power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios in the world.

Technology oozes from every part of this incredible bike as a click of a button of the Ducatiís Riding Modes deliver performance with enhanced rider confidence by combining seven class-leading technologies. The latest-generation sports ABS system, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES), Ducati Quick-Shift (DQS), Ducatiís new race-derived Engine Brake Control (EBC) and Ride-by-Wire (RbW) are now all programmed into seamless, electronic rider assistance. Even the worldís most advanced LCD dashboard with the full colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display changes to suit the riderís environment.

The 1199 Panigale is a bike that needs to be ridden to fully appreciate how special this bike and now all 32 dealers across the UK have demonstrators available for test rides. To discover the 1199 Panigale and the rest of the Ducati range visit your local dealer now.
