The sound of the Ducati 1199 Panigale RS13

Dailies -



With both Carlos Checa and Ayrton Badovini onboard, we get the feeling this is a sound you’re going to be hearing a lot of in SBK next year. The RS13 is the official, factory racing version of the Ducati 1199 Panigale, shorn of roadgoing equipment like lights, fitted with top-shelf Ohlins suspension, Brembo brakes and full carbon fiber bodywork. The season starts February 22 at Phillip Island; with this new bike and without Max Biaggi, it’ll be an interesting year.

    Bayliss and Checa in 2013!!! If only dreams came true.

    Friend of mine was a little drunk, and called it a Ducati Pringle.

    Yeah, that’s stuck now in my head.

    Sick….. We’ll see if it can handle itself well with other bikes around it.
