Watch the Ducati 1199 Panigale RS13 hit the dyno

Dailies -



Team Alstare Ducati is busy preparing for the SBK season, seen here putting its 1199 RS13 through its paces on the dyno. SBK race machines put out well in excess of 200bhp, even after removing the extra 15 or 20bhp that comes with Ducati stickers on its production models. Man does that desmoquattro sound mean.

    The sound… It makes me weak at the knees. I love me some dry clutch racket with my Ducati L twin but that DesmoQuattro music makes me forget about everything else. Lovely.

    So you’re not going to tell us what the results of the dyno test were? It would be really interesting to know how much HP the new Panigale SBK makes compared to the old SBK Ducati. Especially since the old one had to run an intake restrictor and I’ve heard that the new one isn’t being required to run one.

      You realise hellforleather weren’t actually there right? And while I would also be interested I don’t expect teams to reveal information on their bikes’ performance where the competition can see it. Bike sounds great though!

    Isn’t this bike using the new superquadro engine?
