== Overview ==
Ducati 1299S

By adding a name to the number,
1199, the Panigale went against the tradition of Ducati
Superbikes, which had previously always been known by just a
number. The name refers to the district of Bologna where the
company headquarters is, and has always been, and so strengthens
the link with the Ducati home territory. Thanks to its
technological features, the 1199 Panigale opened the way for a
new frontier of supersports bikes, with its Superquadro engine
and monocoque chassis. With the 1299, Ducati pushes the
characterising features of the 1199 Panigale still further
forward. The 1299 is an object of desire that will fill the
dreams of fans throughout the world.

The new 1285 cm3 twin-cylinder Superquadro provides 10% more
torque compared to the power unit of the 1199 Panigale and makes
for an even more responsive throttle. With the 10 hp of extra
power, the 1299 Panigale exceeds a maximum power of 200 hp - an
incredible level for a twin-cylinder road bike – while the
updated chassis specifications make the bike more agile, at the
same time providing better traction out of every corner, a
condition that's necessary in order to make the most of the
incredible maximum torque value of 144.6 Nm.

Each and every detail of the 1299 Panigale is a tribute to the
legendary tradition of sports bikes that Ducati has personified
since the beginning: the parts are not only efficient and
practical, they're also minimalist and have an essential style,
created with skill to become works of motorcycle art.

The horizontal twin headlamps are integrated as part of the
front intake ports and give the front view of the 1299 a truly
racing style. While the 1299 Panigale has LED side-lights and
bulbs for the headlights, the 1299 Panigale S version has full
LED lighting.

The 2015 Ducati Superbike family presents a new major player in
the category: the 1299 Panigale. The latest arrival at the
Bologna-based firm, with its 1285 cm3 Superquadro engine, raises
the standards once again in terms of performance for supersports
bikes on the international market. Thanks to incredible torque
with a value of 144.6 Nm at 8,750 rpm, a dry weight of 166.5 kg
(367 lb) and
maximum power of 205 hp at 10,500 rpm. With an extremely high
power to weight ratio, the 1299 Panigale has become a new
benchmark standard for very high performance bikes.

The latest generation of Ducati Superbikes
builds upon engineering and design solutions introduced on the
1199, rendering the concept of the Superbike for the road still
more extreme. The new 1299 Panigale has more torque, it's more
powerful and responsive than the 1199, the bike it replaces,
while at the same time it's easier and safer to ride thanks to
the use of innovative solutions devised by Ducati Corse, to
allow everyday fans to experience the technology of world

The 1299 Panigale has the Superquadro, the most advanced and
powerful twin-cylinder engine produced on the planet, which is
made even more extreme by pistons with a diameter of 116 mm, a
value that's used for the very first time on a supersports road
bike. The motorcycle has evolved in terms of chassis set-up too:
the innovative monocoque chassis now has a steering head angle
of 24° to guarantee increased agility when cornering, while the
fork pivot is 4 mm lower allowing for increased rear traction in
a variety of situations.

The new electronic kit, studied specifically for the 1299
Panigale and integrated in the three different Riding Modes,
makes it even more high-performance. Thanks in fact to the
presence of the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), Cornering ABS
is made available, along with Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) and,
on the S version, the Öhlins Smart EC, an event-based control
system for the suspension.

Moreover, the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) now works also during
down-changing, to further improve track performance and to make
the bike more easy to use on a daily basis. On the 1299
Panigale, the Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Ducati Wheelie
Control (DWC) and the Engine Brake Control (EBC) have been
optimised by an automatic calibration system which allows for
easy changes in tyre size and final drive ratio.

Every single detail of the Panigale is a tribute to the
legendary sports tradition where Ducati's roots lie. Just as the
famous 916-996-998 series, which recently celebrated its
twentieth anniversary and is still a unique and instantly
recognisable example of Italian style, so too the 1299 Panigale
with its incredibly contemporary and practical design follows in
the footsteps of the 1199 Panigale which, thanks to its design,
won the prestigious Compasso d'Oro award. As well as improving
the aerodynamic penetration, the wider nose fairing and more
protective windshield make the fairing of the new 1299 Panigale
still more aggressive, thanks also to the wider front air
intakes. The new tail fairing, divided into two sections,
completes the form of the 1299 Panigale, which also has new
lateral ducts and mirrors.

Moreover, the 1299 Panigale is fitted out with a new and more
comfortable saddle and with machined aluminium footrests, to
provide maximum on-road grip.

For 2015 Ducati also introduces the Panigale
R, which is the homologated base for its World Superbike
machines and is essentially a road-legal race bike with
indicators and lights. Fitted with the 1198 cm3 Superquadro
engine, thus falling within Superbike displacement limits, it
boasts titanium intake and exhaust valves and rods, two-ring
pistons and an extremely lightweight crankshaft which is
balanced with tungsten inserts, to guarantee a maximum power of
205 hp at 11,500 revs/minute and a torque of 136.2 Nm at 10,250
rpm. The Panigale R is also fitted with Öhlins mechanical
suspension, an adjustable swingarm pivot and the same electronic
technology as the 1299 Panigale, as well as a lithium ion
battery which means a reduction in weight of over 2 kg, making
it a total of 6 kg lighter than the 1199 Panigale R.

Alongside the new 1299 Panigale, 1299 Panigale S and Panigale R,
the Ducati Superbike range is completed by the 899 Panigale, a
Supermid version created and designed as an ideal product for
those who want to be a stylish part of the exclusive world of
the high performance Ducati Superbikes. The 899 Panigale is a
product of the genius and technological innovation of the
Bologna-based firm and it's not just a supersports bike that's
completely at home on the race-track, it's also a sophisticated
streetbike for use on the road.

Even more horsepower and torque

With the new 1,285 cm3 Superquadro power unit, Ducati has raised
the bar on performance yet higher.

The most advanced and powerful twin-cylinder produced on the
planet is made even more extreme by pistons with a diameter of
116 mm, a value that's used for the very first time on a
high-performance supersports twin-cylinder road bike. The new
Superquadro engine (so called because of its massively
over-square bore and stroke ratio) has increased power of 205 hp
at 10,500 rpm, a milestone level for a production twin-cylinder,
while the torque has increased to 144.6 Nm at 8,750 rpm and,
thanks to the Riding Modes available to the rider, it's possible
to regulate delivery according to the riding style and

The engine has been built in such a way as to have a
considerable increase of torque so as to guarantee rapid
response throughout the range. Valve clearance check intervals
have remained at every 24,000 km as with the previous version.

A new milestone
The new 116 mm diameter pistons have led the Superquadro to set
new records. The “box in box” pistons have been redesigned as
have the piston ring and the oil ring, while the pin has a DLC
(Diamond Like Carbon) facing. The compression ratio has
increased to 12.6:1 while the 116 mm bore, together with the
60.8 mm stroke mean the overall displacement is 1,285 cm³.

The Superquadro engine was created to be a structural part of
the frame and so its form has been designed with the best
conformation, weight distribution and resilience as possible.
The cylinders, still at a 90° angle to each other, are rolled
back for a 21° angle between the front cylinder and the
horizontal plane. This allows the engine to be placed further
forward than is possible with a classical Lshaped twin-cylinder,
and improves the distribution of weight between front and rear.

The crankcases are vacuum die-cast using Vacural® technology.
This procedure guarantees maximum weight-saving, consistent wall
thickness and superior strength. The crankshafts are shaped in
such a way as to incorporate the water jacket around the steel
rods of the cylinders, inserted into the base slots during the
initial stages of assembly. This design means the cylinder head
is fixed directly
onto the crankcase, combining the need for a structural rigidity
with a notable benefit in terms of the reduced dimensions. The
cylinder heads of the new 1,285 cm³ Superquadro engine have been
improved to guarantee greater rigidity, as in the case of the
magnesium head covers and those on the clutch side.

The oil sump is also in magnesium.

The crankcases are notable also for the use of plain main
crankshaft bearings, derived from racing bikes. The absence of
ball bearings makes it possible to have a crankshaft with
journals of a greater diameter and at the same time a larger
section of the base in the area around the main bearings, in
order to increase rigidity and strength, necessary for the
extreme power delivery of the Superquadro.

The 1,285 cm³ version incorporates a crankshaft with modified
balancing and innovative rods to support the greater load of the
116 mm diameter pistons.

The main journals are lubricated with compressed oil through
dedicated channels within the base. This method ensures the
crankshaft is sufficiently lubricated and the oil is swiftly
collected, thanks to an advanced feature – a lobed pump which
creates a vacuum in the crankcase, as in engines used for MotoGP

The pump is operated by a shaft moved by a series of gears made
from a special high strength technopolymer and keeps the
crankcase area below the pistons in controlled conditions of
constant vacuum, reducing resistance during downward movement
and crankshaft rotation and ensuring that the lubrication oil is
collected efficiently in any condition of engine use.

The 46.8 mm diameter titanium intake valves and the 38.2 mm
diameter exhaust valves are of exactly the same dimensions as
those of the Superquadro 1199, so are the throttle bodies, which
again have an oval section and a diameter equivalent to 67.5 mm.
The throttle bodies are worked by a full Ride-by-Wire system
independently from each other and they each have 2 injectors –
the first is located below the throttle body and used to supply
the engine under low load conditions while the second, located
above the throttle body, is activated when the engine requires a
higher performance.

Clean power
Once again the new Superquadro incorporates a system of
secondary air injection for an engine setup that makes it
possible to combine the best possible delivery of high
performance and regular functioning, with less cyclical
dispersal of combustion. This system ensures complete
oxidisation of the unburned hydrocarbons, efficiently reducing
the levels of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide (CO).

Thanks to the secondary air valve a supply of clean air directly
from the airbox can be introduced into the exhaust port of each
head (just after the exhaust valve). With a controlled
introduction of oxygen, the exiting hot gases can be completely
combusted so as to eliminate any particles of noncombusted fuel
that would otherwise enter the atmosphere. The exhaust of the
1299 Panigale has
been redesigned compared to the previous 1199 Panigale model.

The fundamental Desmo
Such an extreme engine highlights still further the fundamental
nature of the Desmodromic distribution system used exclusively
by Ducati. Given the high functioning speed of the Superquadro
and the size of the valves, the rockers would be unable to
follow the closure of the cam profiles if only ordinary springs
were used. With the Desmo system on the other hand, the valves
are closed mechanically with the same technique and precision as
during the opening stage, allowing the cam profiles more power
and extreme timing which meet the performance target
requirements of the project. This system, used on all Ducati
models, shows its worth on the Superbikes too, as well as on the
Ducati Corse Desmosedici MotoGP.

The power of precision
The Superquadro makes use of a combined gear train configuration
to control its camshafts. A chain connects the crankshaft to a
gear fixed to the head. This gear has a double set of teeth –
the set driven by the chain, and another set which drives two
other gears fixed respectively on the intake and exhaust
camshafts. The position of the gears at the ends of the
camshafts is adjustable to allow for optimum timing precision.

At the end of the exhaust camshaft of each head, there's a
centrifugal decompressor. During start-up, the device allows the
profile of the opening lobe of the camshaft to be modified,
causing a slight lift of the valve which reduces pressure in the
combustion chamber during the compression stage. This reduction
in compression pressure enables the use of a very small electric
starter and a much smaller battery than in the past. Once the
engine fires, its idle rpm and the resulting centrifugal force
modifies the configuration of the device to cancel the effect of
the raised valve, returning the engine to its normal functioning

Transmission is managed by a six-speed gearbox together with a
wet clutch that has a progressive self-servo mechanism which
allows the load on the disks to be increased without
compromising the lever force required by the rider to operate
the clutch. This result is an optimal combination of the
requirements for a high torque transmission together with a high
level of comfort for the rider.

Under sports riding conditions, with repeated downshifting and
aggressive deceleration, the same mechanism reduces pressure on
the clutch disks, allowing them to work in slipper clutch mode.
In addition, the new Superquadro has an innovative gear sensor,
devised for MotoGP, which is indispensable for getting the most
out of the new electronic gear-changing strategy.

Electronic Technology
The 1299 Panigale provides a new benchmark for electronic
systems. The highly advanced electronic kit is supported by the
Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) which measures acceleration in
relation to three axes and calculates the bike’s angle of roll
and pitch. The IMU has made it possible to increase the
performance of the electronic kit, introducing Cornering ABS,
Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) and, on the S version, Öhlins Smart
EC, an event-based control system of the suspension. For the
first time, the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) functions also for
downshifts. Furthermore, the 1299 Panigale is equipped with the
Ride-by-Wire (RbW) system, the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA+) and
the Ducati Riding Modes, which interact differently with the
Ducati Traction Control (DTC), the Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC),
the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), the Cornering ABS, the Engine
Brake Control (EBC) and, on the S version, also the Öhlins Smart
EC suspension. On the S version, the impressive provision of
electronic devices also includes auxiliary buttons on the
handlebars, as on race bikes, to regulate the DTC, DWC or EBC
systems during track use.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)
The DTC system, a great Ducati success story, has been perfected
even further for the 1299 Panigale and entirely integrated in
the electronic kit for all the versions. It makes use of the
software logic created for the Ducati Corse models used by the
World Champions of MotoGP and Superbike and provides a choice of
eight profiles developed by a team of riders and professional

The system, which can be accessed via the left handlebar
switches and visualised on the TFT instrumentation, allows the
rider to choose from among the eight available profiles – each
one has been programmed to supply a tolerance value for
rear-wheel spinning control from one to eight. Level eight
provides maximum safety, activating at the slightest sign of
spinning, with a greater level of interaction, while level one,
aimed at only the most skilled riders, has greater tolerance and
minimum intervention. The DTC system and the selected level are
permanently visualised on the instrumentation, to remind the
rider of the current level of interaction following any
modification of the selected Riding Mode.

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) up/down
The DQS system now offers up/down functionality, which makes it
possible to change gears in both directions without using the
clutch, for even quicker and more efficient shifts. The system
includes a bidirectional micro-switch integrated into the lever
mechanism which, each time the gears are activated, sends a
signal to the ECU. The system works differently for upshifts and
downshifts, interfacing with the engine control electronics to
incorporate an auto-blipper function during downshifts. This
enables the
gears to mesh smoothly without any intervention on the part of
the rider, and combined with the slipper clutch and EBC it
facilitates seamless downshifts in full control, even during the
most aggressive riding.

Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC)
DWC is a control system devised from Ducati's experience in
racing. Thanks to the IMU it uses an algorithm with a series of
parameters such as speed, acceleration, lean and pitch angles,
to calculate if the front wheel is lifted from the ground and by
how much. According to the setting currently selected, the
system intervenes by reducing power and torque levels in order
to control the wheelie. Like DTC, DWC can be set to 8 different
levels. The DWC system and selected level are permanently
displayed on the instrument panel, to remind the rider of the
current level of interaction following any modification of the
selected Riding Mode.

Engine Brake Control (EBC)
EBC (Engine Brake Control) was perfected by Ducati Corse in
order to help riders optimise the stability of their vehicle in
extreme conditions and when entering a turn, during races for
the MotoGP and Superbike world championships by balancing the
force acting on the back tyre in situations of intense engine
braking. The EBC monitors the position of the throttle valve,
the selected gear and the
deceleration of the crankshaft during extreme braking and it
regulates, with great precision, the opening of the throttle
activated by the Ride-by-Wire system to adjust the back-torque
applied to the tyre. The EBC has three setting levels accessible
from the instrument panel of the 1299 Panigale and integrated
automatically into the three Riding Modes in order to assist the
rider still further in an extraordinarily efficient way.

Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES) and Öhlins Smart EC
The 1299 Panigale S is fitted with the innovative Öhlins Smart
EC system – an event-based control system for the suspension.
This system, thanks to the use of stepper motors and taking into
account the signals measured and/or elaborated by the bike's
other ECUs, modifies the set-up of the suspension during use in
order to improve cornering grip, stability, braking, corner
entry and handling. The system, which was developed in
collaboration with Öhlins uses a NIX-30 fork with TIN treatment
on the fork tubes, a TTX shock absorber, and a steering damper,
regulating each one independently.

The Ducati Riding Modes
Introduced for the first time on the multi-award winning
Multistrada 1200 in 2010, the Ducati Riding Modes marked a
change in the world of motorcycle engineering, allowing the
rider to choose between three pre-set modes to provide the
perfect setup for each rider and all kinds of weather and road
conditions. Each Riding Mode is programmed to modify the
character of the engine and the settings of the suspension even
on the move. The modes available are a combination of extremely
advanced dedicated technologies.

Race Riding Mode
Selecting the Race Riding Mode, the rider can count on 205 hp,
with direct throttle response and, on the S version, a specific
racetrack setting for the suspension. The Race mode includes a
predefined level of DTC, DWC, EBC and ABS set for maximum
performance on the racetrack – only active on the front wheel,
and with the Cornering function not engaged.

Sport Riding Mode
Selecting the Sport Riding Mode, the racetrack or road rider can
count on 205 hp of delivery with a sports throttle response and,
on the S version, a sports type setting of the suspension. In
Sport mode, the predefined levels of DTC, DWC, EBC AND ABS are
set for sports performance on the road. Control of back wheel
lift when braking is activated and the Cornering function
setting provides maximum performance when cornering.

Wet Riding Mode
The Wet Riding Mode provides the rider on road or race-track
with 120 hp of delivery with a gentle throttle response and, on
the S version, a setting of the suspension that's optimised for
conditions with little grip. The predefined levels of DTC, DWC,
EBC and ABS are set to provide maximum safety, completely
eliminating back wheel lift when braking and the Cornering
function setting also provides maximum safety.

TFT Instrumentation
The TFT (Thin Film Transistor) instrumentation of the 1299
Panigale makes use of the most advanced technology in the field
of data visualisation. The configuration of the colour display
can be modified and it adjusts automatically to the selected
Riding Mode in order to provide the clearest possible display of
the information according to riding conditions and it even
inverts the colours of the characters and the background in
situations of very low visibility. The high definition
instrument panel shows rpm between 1,000 and 12,000 on a display
with a 90° angle at the far top left corner of the main screen,
adding increasing luminous bars to the display as the engine
increases in speed and enlarging the main digits of the index
(from 1 to 12) one by one, when the corresponding value has been
reached. In the lower part of the display, from left to right,
the current state and/or the settings of the Riding Modes are
while the right-hand part of the screen contains a gear
indicator. When the Track visualisation mode is selected, for
the first time, the lean angle is also displayed. If the Lap
Time function is activated on the instrument panel, the highest
speed and maximum lean angle of each lap are also shown when the
individual times are visualised.

Ducati Data Analyser+ GPS (DDA+ GPS)
With the Ducati Data Analyser (DDA), which includes
Mac-compatible software and a USB data recovery device, it's
possible to evaluate the performance of the bike and the rider,
with graphic presentations for specific areas of data. The DDA+
GPS is the latest generation of the Ducati Data Analyser with
GPS function and it automatically records the timing of each lap
every time the 1299 Panigale crosses the finish line of a
racetrack. When the rider, crossing the finish line, presses the
high-beam flash button, this highly innovative system records
the coordinates of the position and then records the timings of
each successive lap once it's been completed.

The DDA+ GPS is available for the 1299 Panigale and the 1299
Panigale S as a Ducati Performance plug-and-play accessory.

The DDA+, an essential instrument for race bikes, is able to
record a wide range of data, including throttle, speed of the
bike, selected gear, engine temperature, distance travelled, rpm
and lap times. A new data collection channel has been introduced
to record the DTC index, presenting it as a graphic line showing
the level of interaction of the DTC in case of rear wheel
spinning. The data can be downloaded after a ride out or a track
session to compare and analyse the performance of both rider and
bike in detail, including lean angles.

Monocoque Technology
The chassis of the 1299 Panigale is Ducati technology at its
very best. Developed in the hypercompetitive world of racing,
the extremely compact monocoque structure integrates the airbox,
contributing significantly to maintaining the bike's reduced
weight which, for the 1299 Panigale is a dry weight of just
166.5 kg (367 lb).

The compact monocoque structure, which is in aluminium to
increase strength, uses the Superquadro engine as a structural
element. It's fixed directly to the cylinder heads and, in the
front part, incorporates the steering head bearings. As well as
being a traditional chassis, the monocoque also acts as the
airbox. Fitted inside, along with the air filters, are the
throttle bodies and the fuel circuit, complete with injectors.
When the aluminium tank is mounted, its bottom portion seals the
airbox as a top cover. The steering head angle has been modified
for the 1299 Panigale from 24.5° to 24° and the trail has been
reduced from 100 mm to 96 mm.

The new chassis setup also includes a single-sided swingarm with
a 4 mm lower pivot point. The total wheelbase of the 1299
Panigale is 1,437 mm while the distribution of weight is 52% at
the front and 48% at the rear for a rider of average build.

The exhaust system is mounted underneath the engine, and
together with the aluminium alloy rear subframe and magnesium
front subframe, ensures centralisation of vehicle mass which
guarantees excellent agility.

The 1299 Panigale incorporates a lightweight, pressurised 50 mm
Marzocchi fork with anodised aluminium sliders. The fork
sliders, which have a matt champagne colour finish, contain
aluminium stanchions with black anodised finish and splendidly
designed aluminium bottoms. The fork can be completely adjusted
in compression, rebound, and spring preload, and it also has a
hydraulic system which, thanks to using as little oil as
possible for each stanchion compared to traditional systems,
contributes slightly to the weight reduction. The rear
suspension of the 1299 Panigale is controlled by a Sachs shock
absorber that is also completely adjustable. The 1299 Panigale S
is fitted with the Öhlins Smart EC event-based suspension, while
the 1299 Panigale R is fitted with Öhlins mechanical suspension.

Braking System
The whole 1299 Panigale/Panigale R range is equipped with
monobloc Brembo M50 callipers which, as well as being designed
to be compact, bring a significant reduction of weight. The
callipers are forged from a single block of alloy and provide
increased rigidity and resistance to deformation during the most
extreme braking episodes. The resulting increase of performance
by the hydraulic system doesn't just ensure spectacular braking
efficiency but also improves precision responsiveness at the
lever. The double monobloc Brembo callipers each have four 30 mm
diameter pistons that grip 330 mm diameter discs ensuring
excellent braking efficiency. The whole 1299 Panigale/Panigale R
range is also fitted with the new Cornering ABS system which
uses the extremely lightweight Bosch 9.1MP ECU.

Wheels and Tyres
While the 1299 Panigale is fitted with cast aluminium tri-Y
spoke wheels, 3.5 inches wide at the front and 6 inches wide at
the rear to allow rapid changes of direction and incredible
performance during acceleration and braking, the 1299 Panigale S
has elegant forged and machine-finished tri-W wheels, which are
lighter for even better performance.

The whole 1299 Panigale/Panigale R range is fitted exclusively
with Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres. These are the road
versions of the tyres used in the Superstock 1000 FIM Cup:
120/70 ZR17 at the front and 200/55 x ZR17 at the rear.

Designed to maintain precision both on the straights and when
cornering, the 200/55 x ZR17 rear tyre significantly enhances
the contact patch and turn-in speed, adding a higher profile to
the width of 200 mm. Pirelli and Ducati technicians have worked
together to obtain perfect synergy between the front and rear
profiles, which ensures unprecedented precise road feel and
extraordinary directional agility during cornering, thanks to
the monocoque technology used for the chassis.

The structure and compound used for the tyres is derived
directly form Pirelli's experience in the World Superbike
Championship. The tyre carcasses have been designed in order to
guarantee rigidity during extreme braking and the outer sections
have been designed to maximise the area of contact; furthermore
the double compound of the tyre treads contains polymers which
facilitate rapid warming and consistent grip.
