2016 - 2018 Ducati Panigale 959

2016 - 2018 Ducati Panigale 959

Racy Enough For The ’EveryRiders’ Among Us

Back in ’16, Ducati pushed the supersport envelope with its super-middleweight Panigale 959, and since you can’t argue with success, the Italian marque carries that original model straight over into MY2018. The engine clocks in at nearly a liter with all the performance you’d expect, plus some electronic safety equipment to help you keep it under control and make riding the “959” a user-friendly affair. Race fans find plenty to be excited about, as well, since the Panigale rocks some track-tastic features to go with its already-sporty mien for a look that says “serious business” to all who behold it. It seems the Panigale has the look with the appropriate under-the-hood gear, but how does it stack up against the well-populated market segment in which it falls? That’s what I aim to find out today.

Ducati testing out a refreshed Hypermortard for 2019

Ducati testing out a refreshed Hypermortard for 2019

Trellis subframe, TFT instrumentation and better electronic package

Ducati made a radical move in the context of motorcycling when it launched the Hypermotard for the first time in 2007. Much before the Diavel, it was the Hypermotard which started the trend of ‘cross-breeding’ at Ducati. And even today, the Hypermotard bridged the gap between refined sportbikes and minimalist supermotards driven by the belief in the upright and in-control riding position of a dirt bike, but not the harsh characteristics of its single cylinder engine.

It recently ditched the 821cc Monster derived mill for an all-new four-stroke, 937cc L-twin and is a 113 hp rocket. It looks like Ducati is taking another dig at it and is giving it a sizeable update for the 2019 model. Friends from MoreBikes have managed to get their hands on the bike undergoing testing under camouflage.

Ducati currently developing new products to run on the V4 architecture

Ducati currently developing new products to run on the V4 architecture

Will include a brand new V4 R for WSBK and a V4 Multistrada to be the first ones

In what went down as the biggest shift for the company, Ducati’s 1103cc Desmosedici Stradale powered V4 is being considered all around for being 2018’s best motorcycle. And rightly so is also the most powerful bike in its class with 214 hp and 91.5 lb-ft of torque.

This newfound love for a four-cylinder version of their street bikes which will most probably change the whole dimension within the segment will now trickle down to run on other segments and with smaller capacities. CEO Claudio Domenicali confirmed the firm’s interests in developing cheaper, lower-performance versions of their V4 engines to reap all benefits of the technological feat.

Ducati asking Hero’s hand for a 300cc manufacturing partner ?

In a bid to enter Asian markets and expand its foothold

India celebrated its 72nd Independence Day yesterday and is in the highest rankings in terms of growing economy. It looks like our motorcycle industry is also heading to the subcontinent in the jive to make more money. Why wouldn’t they? India became the biggest market for two-wheelers in the world, and it saw multiple international manufacturers setting up manufacturing or assembly units here.

The most recent speculation coming to the surface is the Italian Red making contact with Hero Motocorp trying to figure out how to make a 300cc baby. Although not official, these rumors don’t seem to slip away, and we strongly believe these to be true since all major manufacturers these days are looking at new ways to expand their market reach by introducing smaller displacement models to newer Asian countries.

Ducati busy prepping up the 2019 Diavel

Spy shots and renderings confirm showcase at the upcoming EICMA

First showcased at the EICMA motor show in Milan 2011, the Diavel took all eyeballs for a trippy show. Long and low, with sleek and sexy lines, forward controls and a low seat height, this Bologna bruiser was something totally new from the Italian company known the world over for blending impeccable design and high-performance machines. Something like putting purists into a realm of more content and less bitter.

The bike always had a menacing outlook to it that was both handsome and evil at the same time. Rightfully it was quoted as ‘The Gentleman and The Bastard’. Now though, the Italians have upped the ante with a brand new 2019 Diavel built around the same exposed trellis chassis of the xDiavel. Don’t get too excited now, it’s just the spy shots under camouflage and a rendering is all that we have.

2018 Ducati Monster 1200 25° Anniversario

Gets new livery, solid machined parts, aluminum and carbon-fiber

In 1992, Ducati showcased the Ducati Monster 900 prototype at the Cologne Motor Show, and it became an instant icon. With its boundless personality and audacious nudity, it was a motorcycle that had revolutionized the "naked" bike category. Since then, the Monster range sold like hot cakes and played a major role in the expansion of the Ducati family.

Recently, the model celebrated its 25th anniversary since the original Monster 900 MY1993 hit the streets. And to commemorate the occasion, the chaps at the Borgo Panigale factory have produced a limited edition affair of the flagship Monster 1200 and given it a special color scheme, machined components, high-quality finishing, carbon fiber and a lot of technology.

2018 Ducati Panigale 959 Corse

New livery, lighter battery and exhausts, and top of the line suspension setup

Launched back in 2016 as a replacement model of the Euro-III 899 Panigale, the Euro-IV compliant 959 Panigale became the most affordable superbike in the international lineup of Ducati until the brand launched the 939 Supersport last year. It came with a longer stroked 955cc engine, a tweaked chassis and styling, new side-mount exhausts and a weight increase.

With high spec Brembos’, Showas’, a quickshifter, traction control and ABS, the standard 959 was running great. But the folks at the Italian company had a greater vision. For 2018, the 959 just got checked by the folks who run the team’s MotoGP stunts. Better equipped and a fresh new paint job that was seen similarly with the 848 EVO Corse edition in 2013.
