    Ducati India has launched the 959 Panigale Corse, special edition of the middleweight supersport offering from Ducati, the 959 Panigale, at INR 15,20,000 (Ex-Showroom, India). Bookings are now open across all Ducati dealerships in the country. The motorcycle remains almost the same mechanically, but gets a dedicated color scheme inspired by the colors of the MotoGP.

    Sergi Canovas, Managing Director of Ducati India Pvt. Ltd.
    said, “The Panigale has always been the definite Ducati superbike that allows biking enthusiasts to have an unparalleled experience on a race track. The 959 Panigale embodies absolute excellence through the advanced electronics package that inspires confidence and allows riders to explore the limit. In this special Corse livery, the 959 looks much more special and unique as the paint scheme is inspired by the colours of our MotoGP bike, the Desmosedici GP 18.”

    The 959 Panigale Corse gets a 955cc Superquadro engine that is Euro-IV compliant. It makes 150 bhp of power at 10,500 rpm and 102 Nm of torque at 9,000 rpm.

    The Ducati Riding Modes enables the electronic settings to be altered differently to give the bike three different personalities. The 3 Riding Modes available in the 959 Panigale Corse are Race, Sport and Wet. However, the version available in India is not equipped with the Ohlins suspensions, lithium battery, Ohlins steering damper and Ducati Performance titanium silencers by Akrapovic.
