The ugly Ducati Panigale 1199 for Japan

The Ducati Panigale 1199 has to be one of the most beautiful motorcycles out there. It is a huge milestone for Ducati as the bike is a marvel in terms of its unique chassis design. The Panigale is taking time reaching the different markets around the world due to the abundant laws each country has for imports. One such law made it difficult for the Panigale 1199 to get into Japan in its original form as it turned out to be too loud. This has forced the engineers at Ducati to redesign the exhaust into the old school round pipe type and also add a plastic clutch cover that extends till it covers the rear cylinder. There is an approximate increase in weight of 2 kilograms.
