Ducati 899 Panigale Overview

The 899 Panigale is Ducati’s replacement for the earlier 1199 Panigale with the aim being to provide a bike which was middleweight and equally able to handle life on the road and a circuit on the tracks.  Certainly the Ducati 899 Panigale has been improved upon with more emphasis having been placed on comfort and overall ride-ability along with a Superquadra engine which boasts more power and torque.

The Ducati 899 Panigale is a light bike with steering which is easy and accurate and is perfectly at home whether you are taking corners on the track or hitting the open road and to find this balance so perfectly, you know you are talking about something a little bit special.  On top of this, Ducati have put time and effort into creating a bike which is a joy to ride with fully adjustable suspension, three different rider modes and impressive ABS brakes to name just some of the rider perks which come as standard with the 899.  The 899 also has a more comfortable riding position than other bikes in the Ducati range, perhaps most notably the 848 EVO.

The Ducati 899 Panigale is a bike which gives you a lot for your money.  It doesn’t come cheap, with prices starting at around £12,700 for a new bike but when you consider that you get a whole heap of riding perks, the chance to buy into an exclusive club and the delight of riding a beautiful Ducati machine which will hold its value well; it’s easy to see why the price might just be worth paying.
