The new 955 cc twin-cylinder, the first Euro 4 homologated Superquadro, boasts a new stroke value and many other interventions that have led to a higher torque curve and greater maximum power, now equal to 157 hp at 10,500 rpm.
The 959 Panigale grows in terms of power thanks to its increased displacement, made possible by increasing the stroke of the piston from 57.2 to 60.8 mm and by redesigning the crankshaft and piston rods, using a completely new lubrication system. 157 hp at 10,500 rpm for even more exciting engine performance
