Ushering in the Future
Introduced to the world at the Milan Motor Show in 2011, the 1199
Panigale was developed around a monocoque rather than Ducati’s
traditional trellis-frame. It makes liberal use of famed Italian
manufacturer Ducati’s race experience and extracts 195hp out of a 1198cc
liquid-cooled L-Twin engine. In an inventive twist, the engine itself
is part of the bike’s frame, and connected directly to the
airbox/monocoque, swing arm and seat rail. The result is a lightweight
and extremely durable vehicle. A wealth of electronic components helps
to control engine output, suspension characteristics and more. The
bike’s sleek design has won it plaudits and awards from around the
