DUCATI 1199 PANIGALE on WIKIPEDIA
The Ducati 1199 Panigale is a Ducati sport bike introduced at the 2011 Milan Motorcycle Show. The motorcycle is named after the small manufacturing town of Borgo Panigale.
At the time of its release, the Ducati 1199 Panigale was the world's most powerful production twin-cylinder engine with maximum 195 horsepower (145 kW) at 10,750 rpm and 98.1 lb•ft (133.0 N•m) torque at 9000 rpm. With a dry weight of 164 kg (362 lb) (188 kg (414 lb) kerb weight), the 1199 has the highest power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios among production motorcycles. The new Superquadro engine is massively oversquare, with a bore:stroke ratio of 1.84:1. Whereas previous Ducatis had belt-driven overhead cams, this engine's valvetrain uses gears and chain. The engine serves as a stressed member, enabling the Panigale to be smaller and lighter than a conventionally framed motorcycle.
The 1199 is also one of the first production sports motorcycles to feature electronically adjustable suspension. Rebound and compression damping is adjusted electronically while pre-load is still adjusted manually. The 1199's exhaust system and mufflers are underneath the engine, and not beneath the seat as on previous models, such as the 1198 and 1098.
