2016 Ducati Panigale 959 Superbike

Feb 29, 2016

Category: Rides

Ducati has upped the ante with their new 959 Panigale. Built with a 955 cc engine that pumps out 157 horsepower alongside nearly 80 lb-feet of torque, this crotch rocket is designed for both speed and control. Along with a big powerful engine, the marque motorcycle company has equipped this bike with traction control, an engine brake control, and three different riding modes (wet, sport, and race).

One of the coolest innovations on the Panigale is the proprietary 6-speed Ducati Quick Shift gearbox, which knows when the rider is pressing on the shift lever, so it cuts power to the engine for just long enough for the rider to toe shift the lever into the next gear without letting off of the gas or hitting the clutch. Ducait’s newest superbike is also easily customized, coming in sport or touring configurations, so you can buy one or both depending on how you want to ride. The big-engined bike starts at just under $15,000 and comes in either Ducati red or white. [Purchase]
