THE PERFECT BALANCE
The fine balance between performance and control that every supersport motorcycle strives to achieve
reaches its pinnacle in the 959 Panigale. All combined in a unique design, which hallmarks the bike as
an immediately recognizable member of the Ducati Superbike family. Lightweight and ready to thrill,
thanks to its 955 cc Superquadro engine and exclusive monocoque frame that ensure great handling
and precision control. High level componentry such as a Brembo monobloc braking system with
Bosch ABS, a slipper clutch, a Showa BPF fork and fully adjustable Sachs rear monoshock, and Riding
Modes and Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) all provide maximum control and safety.
Built to handle both track and road, the 1299 Panigale S features the exclusive semi-active Öhlins Smart EC suspension system with an NIX30 fork and
TTX36 shock absorber, plus an electronic steering damper. Event Based mode ensures real-time adaptation of hydraulic suspension dampers to different
stages of riding: making the switch from extreme on-track performance to safe, comfortable road riding instantaneous. Racing-type, handlebar-mounted
switchgear controls allow for flick-of-the-switch adjustments to Ducati Traction Control (DTC) Evo, Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) Evo and Engine Brake
Control (EBC), letting you personalise the entire track experience. Forged wheels, carbon-fibre front mudguard and a full LED headlamp round off the
exclusive, techy looks of the “S” version.
