About 959 Panigale

Ducati 959 Panigale is a sports bike available in 1 variant in india. Its price starts from ₹15,30,000 (ex-showroom). Ducati 959 Panigale generates 154.85 bhp of power and 107.4 nm of torque from its 955cc engine. Double cylinder engine of 959 Panigale has a 6 speed manual gearbox. With both rear and front disk brakes, Ducati 959 Panigale also has an anti-locking braking system. This 200 kg bike is available in 2 colours.

Ducati launched the 959 Panigale for the Indian market at the 2016 India Bike Week. The new 959 Panigale is an updated version of Ducati’s popular ‘supermid’ track bike – the 899 Panigale.

The cosmetic upgrades on the Ducati 959 Panigale include a wider fairing, windshield and larger air intakes, which give the front end an aggressive look. The fairing gets an LED lamp setup which mimics the one in Ducati’s litre-class flagship model 1299 Panigale, while the rear gets a revised design for the split tailpiece.

The 959 Panigale is built on a die-cast aluminium monocoque frame, which has the engine as a structural element. The liquid-cooled L-twin Superquadro engine displaces 955cc, and produces 157bhp and 107Nm of torque. The electronics package includes ABS, traction control, quick shift, engine brake control and ride-by-wire throttle. The 959 Panigale can be ridden in either three riding modes - race, sport and wet.

Braking is handled by dual 320mm discs upfront and a single 245mm rear disc, with sophisticated Brembo callipers. ABS is offered as standard. The Showa 43mm USDs at the front and a Sachs gas-charged rear monoshock are fully adjustable. Ducati offers the 959 Panigale with a new Euro4 compliant dual canister exhaust system.

The 959 Panigale competes with other middleweight supersports motorcycles like the Triumph Daytona 675R and the MV Agusta F3 800. It is available in either a red paint scheme or the ‘Corse’ livery that will set you back by an extra Rs 67,000 over the standard 959.

BikeWale's Take

The 959 Panigale is Ducati’s entry-level supersport motorcycle. It offers a potent engine and an aggressive riding position to match. Moreover, the 959 Panigale also comes equipped with loads of electronic aids for better control. On the other hand, the bike tends to heat up in heavy traffic conditions.
