- The 959 Panigale replaces the 899 Panigale in Ducati's global lineup
- The 959 takes design cues from the 1299 Panigale and is more aerodynamic
- The 959 Panigale is loaded with electronics for including RbW, DTC, ABS
The styling on the new Ducati 959 Panigale takes hints from the flagship 1299 Panigale featuring the reprofiled headlamps, revised rear view mirrors and tweaked body work. As a result, the 959 is more aerodynamic making for a higher attainable top speed. The chassis has been improved integrating a monocoque frame with a fully adjustable suspension in order to provide effortless handling on the road and track.
The twin-cylinder engine is the first from Ducati to clear the Euro 4 regulations. The motor comes paired to a 6-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch and a multi-plate clutch. The Italian manufacturer has also loaded the 959 Panigale electronics and you get Ride by Wire (RbW) technology that allows for multiple power modes and traction control. A major change also happens to be the under belly exhaust on the Panigale that has been replaced by a side mounted twin unit.
