The Ducati 959 Panigale is the latest member of the Ducati superbike family. Moving on from the very successful 899, the 959 Panigale is not only cleaner thanks to it's Euro 4 emmissions compliance but makes more power and torque just where it is needed.

The chassis has also been modified improving the handling of the bike considerably. Bodywork features of the Ducati 959 Panigale are now shared more closely with it's big brother the 1299. A larger frontal area to the fairing ensures that the bike and rider cut through the air with less effort and more rider protection.

This technology is matched only by the 959 ’s bigger brother the 1299 Panigale. The Ducati 959 uses a Monocoque frame and 157HP Superquadro engine, both designed with one thing in mind ‘to save weight’ thus giving unprecedented agility both on road and track.

Unlike any mid sized Ducati before, the 959 Panigale has a whole host of electronic rider aids as standard only before found on the very highest spec Ducati superbikes.

These include Ducati quick shifter (DQS), Engine Brake Control (EBC), Ducati 8 level traction control (DTC), the very latest Bosch 9MP ABS braking system and Full ride by wire throttle (Rbw) with three riding modes -1 Race 2 Sport and 3 Wet. Each mode gives a different throttle response as well as altering DTC, EBC and ABS settings. Rain mode also cuts power to 100HP further adding to rider safety giving greater control in harder riding conditions.

Ducati’s latest power plant, the 959 Superquadro, represents another major step forward in twin-cylinder design and technology, generating superb Ducati performance with super smooth power delivery.

The new 955cc Superquadro engine delivers 157HP @ 10,500rpm, +9 Hp more than 899 Panigale and a broader torque curve with the peak of 105.6Nm @ 9,000 rpm. This further adds to the 959 ’s ability to dominate the road as well as the track.

Not only have Ducati managed to make the all new 959 Panigale a very powerful machine but the Desmodromic, 90° L-twin inherits the 1299’s structural design to enable full integration with the monocoque chassis while boasting an ownership-friendly 24,000km (15,000 miles) between major services.

The 959 is fitted with 43mm USD Showa Big Piston forks (BPF). The Showa BPF enhances damping control at low suspension speeds by flowing more oil at lower pressures and reducing the range over which the damping fluid has to flow during compression and extension.

The rear suspension is taken care of by a fully adjustable side-mounted progressive Sachs rear mono-shock.

Braking on the Ducati 959 Panigale at the front is twin radially-mounted Brembo, four piston, Monobloc M4-32 calipers (as used on the Hypermotard range) actuated by a high performance radial master cylinder. The fronts grip 320mm discs, while a single 245mm disc on the rear is gripped by a single Brembo caliper.

The new Ducati 959 Panigale has gone straight to the top of the supermid section of the motorcycle world.
