    Thumbs up Ducati Panigale 959 official with 157 bhp. Panigale 899 Discontinued.

    Ducati 959 Panigale spotted, weeks before EICMA debut.

    The Ducati 899 Panigale is on its way out and filling its shoes would be the much talked about 959 Panigale. While the new motorcycle will be unveiled at the EICMA Motorcycle Show in Milan in November 2015, this new Ducati has already been snapped with absolutely no camouflage, apart from one small sticker covering the product name on the fairing. The 959 Panigale will continue to use the underpinnings of the 899 while borrowing design cues from the bigger 1299 Panigale. The new Panigale will be a part of Ducatis nine-model strong display at this years EICMA Motorcycle show.



    The 959 Panigale receives a 1299 Panigale-style headlight, fairing and mirror stems with a slit. The motorcycle borrows the conventional two-sided swingarm from the 899 Panigale instead of the single-sided unit from the 1299 Panigale to keep cost in check.



    There is no word about the power plant that would propel this new Ducati but some leaked documents by California Air Resources Board (CARB) suggest that 959 Panigale would receive a 955cc liquid cooled motor. We really cannot be specific about the output figures here, though. The Ducati 899 Panigale delivered 150PS of power and 99Nm of torque and we expect the additional 57cc of displacement to bump up those figures marginally.

    With 899 already costing under some litre class bikes in India, it is no doubt that a 959 can dent the sales of few Litre class bikes in any market, already undercutting most of them in terms of weight & size. Ducati's formula of using the engine block as a frame, is working out very well it seems.

    Looking at the last picture, it seems they have done something additional above the exhaust bent below the seat to probably reduce the heating.

    Looks hot as always. This is one of the best looking motorcycle in the world right now.

    Picture seems to be taken very closely with details. Nice post. Good to see Italian beauty news on xBhp.

    Yeah, a bigger exhaust pipe "manages" heating better, directing it away from the engine... And yes, it looks hot.

    Although, I like the entire Panigale concept more, for its technical advantage and miniature size. Look at it, its just like a R15 in size from the front... And it weighs good too, but the ride is amazing anyhow.

    At this stage of time, we've only spotted the 959 in spy shots. Its not even confirmed by the company officials.
    It might get tested, improved and retested before its officially launched.

    So yes, as of now and few (or many) more months, the 899 is here to stay, as a fine alternative to Litre class bikes, at least market-wise if not spec wise.
