Here is the new Ducati Panigale 1199 R — this Panigale has been designed with the performance to rule the track. Expect to hear more from us soon.

  • Bruce Steever

    You have fun at COTA.

    (Which is something that Kevin Schwantz may never hear…)

    My ‘exceptations’ have been raised.

    Heading down to COTA For MotoGP next month. Would kill for a chance to ride it. Looking forward to your thoughts on the bike and the track. Don’t bin it.

    Man I am so ‘except’ed. I ‘except’ this will be the best bike in a long time. I won’t settle for anything ‘expect’ this bike.

  • Ricardo Gozinya

    I except there’s going to be a lot of comparisons of this bike with the HP4.

    • Corey Cook

      Except for the fact that the HP4 looks downright awful in comparison.

        Until you strap them to a dyno.

        • Ricardo Gozinya

          The dyno numbers are interesting, more interested in how the two stack up in terms of actually riding them. The HP4 was treated as the greatest thing on two wheels, so it’ll be interesting to see how this one stacks up against it.

          • TM

            It will fall somewhere below the monster HP curve of the HP4.

  • karlInSanDiego

    Spies racing in his home state, Nicky close to his. Both on halo bike of the brand that arguably has the tightest brand loyalty in bike history. The only thing that would make this better is if Colin Edwards showed up on a EBR!. Oh and if Nicky or Ben can’t pull it off, it doesn’t suck to have Rossi as the ace up your sleeve.

    Sweeeet, but I’d still take the HP4.. Competition of course ;)

  • Hugo

    Can someone please tell me where to find a picture from the end of the video. At the top of the hill, before corner 1??? Awesome picture..
