2012 Ducati Panigale 1199 Davide Giugliano special edition Superbike. Excellent condition with just over 10,000 original miles. Comes with extra seats. Rare bike, one of the best handling and most powerful bikes ever produced. Not for a novice rider! Just serviced and ready to go.
At the time of its release Ducati claimed that the 1199 Panigale was the world’s most powerful production twin-cylinder engine motorcycle, with 195 bhp (145 kW) at 10,750 rpm, and 133.0 N⋅m (98.1 lb⋅ft) torque at 9000 rpm on an engine test stand. With a claimed dry weight of 164 kg (362 lb) and a curb weight of 188 kg (414 lb). Ducati said the 1199 had the highest power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios of production motorcycles.
Motorcycle Consumer News tested the 2012 Panigale S at 128.1 kW (171.8 hp) and 117.1 N⋅m (86.4 lb⋅ft) torque at the rear wheel, with a wet weight 193 kg (425 lb). They measured a 0 to 60 mph (0 to 97 km/h) time of 2.98 seconds, a 0 to 1⁄4 mi (0.00 to 0.40 km) time of 9.91 seconds at 145.95 mph (234.88 km/h), and a top speed to 177.6 mph (285.8 km/h). Braking performance was 60 to 0 mph (97 to 0 km/h) in 119.1 ft (36.3 m) and average fuel economy was 6.9 L/100 km; 41.1 mpg‑imp (34.2 mpg‑US). Motorcycle Consumer News ranked the 2012 Panigale S with the best rear wheel horsepower to wet weight ratio, 1:2.47, of any bike the magazine had ever tested, as well as the 5th highest rear wheel horsepower, and the 10th highest top speed.
The new Superquadro engine is exceptionally oversquare, with a bore:stroke ratio of 1.84:1. Whereas previous Ducatis had belt-driven overhead cams, this engine’s valvetrain uses gears and chain. The engine serves as a stressed member, making the Panigale smaller and lighter than a conventionally framed motorcycle.
The 1199 is also one of the first production sports motorcycles to feature electronically adjustable suspension. Rebound and compression damping is adjusted electronically while pre-load is still adjusted manually. The 1199’s exhaust system and mufflers are underneath the engine, and not beneath the seat as on previous models, such as the 1198 and 1098
