Ducati 959 Panigale Review

14 May, 2018 08:27 AM

Overview

Ducati Panigale 959 is one of its kind, twin cylinder motorcycle that comes priced at INR 14.53 lakh in India. Carrying neat design lines and remarkable side fairing, Panigale 959 rivals all liter class bikes of India. Unlike other brands which offer odd engine sizes to adventure or street bikes, Ducati brings a 955cc engine under this beautiful fairing. The engine performs exceptionally well by producing 150 HP at 10,500 rpm and 102 Nm at 9,000 rpm. Buyers get 12 months service interval with 12,000 km between oil change. It comes with 197.5 kg of wet weight and claims 17 liter fuel tank.

Riding Panigale 959 everyday for long hours may not be a possibility with its strict riding position and impressively, Ducati has a solution to this through their SuperSport series. Buyers looking for track specific bike will feel impressed with Ducati’s list of electronic features on Panigale 959. It is available with anti-lock braking system, traction control, engine brake control, multiple riding modes, ducati quickshifter, ride by wire, steering damper and power modes. Unlike liter class bikes with high fuel demand, Panigale 959 claims 5.6L/100 km of fuel usage (17.85 kmpl approx).

This 955cc engine was one among last L-twin engines that Ducati used for race bike purposes. They have developed a new four cylinder engine for their race series. India spec Panigale 959 comes with twin aluminum side mounted exhausts while some other markets get this same machine with an underbelly unit. Monocoque aluminum frame used for making Ducati 959 Panigale is extremely responsive for track use and also keeps overall weight under check. Front suspension used here is fully adjustable Showa 43mm forks while rear gets Sachs monoshock. Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tyres assure impressive grip levels on all kinds of surfaces.
