Ducati 959 Panigale


On the new 959 Panigale, the new features are not limited to the engine: the aesthetics and set-up have also been significantly improved with some important updates.

Every detail of the 959 Panigale is a tribute to the Ducati racing tradition. A wider and more protective screen that ensures greater aerodynamic penetration, new air vents on the fairing and new rear-view mirrors complete the front fairing.

The new tail, divided into two sections, completes the design of the 959 Panigale, further enhanced by new details such as differently shaped footpegs, made from machined billet aluminium, for the perfect combination of beauty and functionality.

As with the bigger 1299 Panigale, the set-up of the 959 Panigale is entrusted to a compact monocoque structure, in fused aluminium to increase its resistance, using the Superquadro engine as a structural element.

Bike Details


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
