Ducati have finally confirmed on their website the 1199 and have named it the ‘Panigale’. Ducati have not yet released a full photograph of the much awaited motorcycle and the only ones that we have are the that came up couple of weeks back. The Ducati website has confirmed that the 1199 Panigale will be launched at the EICMA International Motorcycle Show in Milan 10-13 November.
Now although Ducati have not released any information, the folks at HellforLeather have got access to a comparison spec sheet. The figures on this paper show that the 1199 Panigale to be a very very mean monster with a power to weight ratio that’s totally mind boggling. With a power of 195 bhp and a weight of only 179 kilograms, this motorcycle on paper has got the numbers which are far far ahead of the anything else that’s out there. We wait impatiently for more information on the 1199 Panigale, November 10th is still 50 days away!
