How will you see this Ducati 1199 Panigale S comes configured as monoposto From the factory, the kit to be able to teleport someone must be ordered as an option. Does anyone still think that this is a motorcycle to walk with half measures ?. This damn spawn always wants moreIt needs to go faster than many of us can offer, and if you are not up to the task, it will take its toll on you.
Those who buy a sports car to show off in the city center and hit four accelerations on the ring roads they are very wrong and, in my opinion, they are not the target market for this bike. For that there are other types of motorcycles, but if you have enough 25,995 euros What does this device cost and you are a passionate ducatista, go ahead, you are going to buy the most evolved motorcycle on the current market to show that you have it fatter than anyone else. And speaking of showing off, let's go with the video.
Possibly the fact of using this motorcycle for any non-circuit use is something irrational, and forcing machines of this type to lead a life that is not their own will not satisfy either side. On many occasions we see authentic quasi-competition motorcycles parked in office areas, something that I will never understand. The Ducati 1199 Panigale S is a creation that needs tracks closed to traffic to unleash his true nature, so don't have this colt in a cage, he wouldn't.
The figure of 195 horses it imposes itself in theory, and applying them to the speed limits of both the DGT and the infrastructure of our roads is something that not even a highly experienced pilot could safely do. I could not say what is the appropriate power figure for driving on the road, but of course that of almost two hundred horses, some that another will be left over.
To conclude, on the subject of the finishes on Ducati They have been up to the task and nothing has been left to chance, the plastic materials have premium finishes, the paint is of outstanding quality and the metal parts worked by CNC make you want to sink your teeth. The palm is taken by the covers made of magnesium on the engine and that are seen insinuatingly through the bodywork. Well, these Italians are not roguish or anything.
Regarding the components Well, I think I can't say anything that you can't imagine, seeing those suspensions it is obvious that they have not spared in superficialities, but the rest of the pieces have not fallen into oblivion. From the massive swingarm to the tires to the subframe, everything apart from having a technical function fulfills an aesthetic function and there are no stridencies in the set. To put a couple of Bad points I can say that with my small wingspan when moving the motorcycle while standing still, the back of my left thigh hit the cable entries of the electronic shock absorber adjustment and that under the seat cover there is only room for more than the wallet, and that if it is one of those that bulge little.
Once the day of return the motorcycle I had to go back into the jungle of Madrid and the criticisms that it has in terms of little comfort, the heat it transmits and how uncomfortable it feels in the city surface again, but with another less bitter taste. By getting off her at the dealership and saying goodbye to this Ducati 1199 Panigale S I realized that it is like a distant sentimental relationship, that it has some bad points, but every time you ride it you forget everything and everyone and you only think about enjoying every second of pleasure, either in mutual movement or contemplating it while standing.

Before finishing I would like to take a trust with all of you. For me, publishing this test is a very big step as an editor on the page that I have followed daily for years, it is something that as a motor enthusiast is very important and satisfactory, so I would like to dedicate this work to my aunt, who left us the last July 30 after losing in his long battle against against the bloody bloody scourge that is cancer.
