Ducati is releasing a matte black version of the 2014 Ducati 1199 Panigale S, along side the traditional red.

This isn’t huge news as it appears to be the only update to the Panigale, which isn’t surprising with 1199 being such a new bike and with news of the Superleggera. Regardless, matte black is probably at the peak of its popularity so this is a smart move on Ducati’s part. We have to admit, we’re a big fan even though it’s becoming borderline cliche.

What would you rather have, this new matte black Panigale S and a the Schuberth SR1 Stealth helmet in matte black and red, or a KTM SMT 990 and the Schuberth SR1 Stealth helmet in matte black and orange?

    Yeah, matte black bikes, helmets, everything is kinda played out and in another 5 years will probably look horribly dated…but c’mon, that’s sexy as fuck.

      Catwoman’s would be cooler. And hotter.

    I’d rather have an FJR than either. And somebody to pay for it.

    Despite my love for Ducatis I am enjoying riding my new Matte Black RSV4 more on te track …but this looks better.

    This is not new to ducati.. Matte black monster and 749 were norm even 10 years ago – except back them it meant the cheaper bike but good to see a “S” model in matt finally
