The Ducati 1199, 1199S & 1199S Tricolore
8 level traction control, 3 level ABS (optional on std bike), 3 power modes, electronic engine braking control, wet slipper clutch, quick shifter, fully adjustable suspension including a shock linkage that allows progressive to linear adjustment. The 1198 was the lightest bike in its class, the Ducati 1199 Panigale is now 10Kg lighter with 195BHP of very usable power thanks to the fly by wire throttle system... Awesome !!
To quote Pirelli - "Power is nothing without control" - the biggest Ducati requisite in the design of this revolutionary machine was that it had to be easy to ride.
The 1199 Panigale has an all new chassis married to an all new engine with direct design involvement from Ducati Corse. This bike combines the road going model and the old "R" race model into one new cutting edge machine.
Ducati have stepped away from the trellis frame and belt driven cams. Do not be fooled, the new Ducati 1199 Panigale is ALL Ducati. Ducati innovation, Ducati technology and Ducati's passion for performance all rolled into one. Phenomenali !!!
The fact that the exhausts are now underneath the engine has aided in achieving a most flickable chassis as well as making the back end of the bike look razor sharp.
Dependent on model choice, the Ducati 1199 Panigale comes with either 50mm Marzocchi forks that are now ALL aluminium on the standard model or 43mm Electronically adjustable Ohlins forks on the "S". The rear end of the standard bike is looked after by a Sachs fully adjustable rear shock where again the "S" boasts an Ohlins electronically adjusted TTX36 shock. Both have the very simple link arm adjustment facility that allows for the rear shock to act in a progressive manner for road use or linearly for track and race use. The depths of electronic adjustments available are breathtaking. For instance both compression and rebound damping each offer 32 different settings - that's over 900 variations............or you can just revert to the default factory settings.
Wheels and Tyres
The Ducati 1199 Panigale Superquadro Engine
The engine has earned the nickname "Superquadro " due to its very square bore. Piston diameter (bore) has been increased and stroke decreased (
112mm x 60.8mm
) allowing the 1199 power plant to rev higher and more freely. This is all topped with cylinder heads that carry the huge valves -
Inlet valves have increased from 43.5 to 46.8mm and exhaust valves from 34.5 to 38.2mm.
In order to ensure safe operation of these valves at such high rpms, many steel desmodromic components have been replaced with titanium and surface finishing and then coated in polymeric-like carbon (PLC) previously designed for the aerospace industry. This is where previous "R" and Desmosedici RR technology has been rolled into the standard bikes. Additionally the new chain/gear cam drive system allows for more accurate cam setups adding to precision of power delivery and reliability at such high revs.
The Ducati 1199 Panigale not only utilises a most efficient pump for oil feed, but has another to remove negative crankcase pressure caused by the downward stroke of the huge pistons. Again ensuring unimpeded free flow of engine rotation.
The Oval Injector bodies of the 1199 Panigale have been increased from an equivalent diameter of 63.9 to a massive and high-flowing 67.5mm. The Ride-by-Wire throttle bodies feed air across twin injectors per cylinder, one positioned below the butterfly for enhanced flexibility and one above for outright power. These in combination with the new enlarged valves vastly improves the flow of gas.
On the end of each exhaust cam drive gear is a centrifugal flyweight which retracts at speeds below tick-over to rotate a “protrusion” from the concentric section of the cam, thus creating sufficient inlet valve lift to act as a de-compressor. This ingenious device enables the engine to be started easily without using a larger battery and starter motor, which has reduced overall vehicle weight by approximately 3.3kg (7.3lb). When the engine starts and the camshafts begin to rotate at tick-over speed, the centrifugal flyweight flicks out, retracting the “protrusion” back into the cam and allowing complete valve closure for full compression.
With an all new engine comes an all new gearbox. This has allowed for larger diameter, stronger gears to transmit the increased power output. Also new for the big superbike is a “wet”, oil-bathed clutch. which is based very closely on the design of the Multistrada and Diavel components. The clutch assembly features a “slipper” function and a progressive self-servo mechanism that compresses the friction plates when under drive from the engine. While enhancing frictional efficiency, this also results in a rider-friendly light clutch lever “feel” at the handlebar. Conversely, when the drive force is reversed (over-run), the mechanism reduces pressure on the friction plates, enabling a true racing “slipper” action, reducing the destabilizing effect of the rear-end under aggressive down-shifting and provide a much smoother feeling when closing the throttle or down-shifting under normal riding conditions.
EBC - Engine braking control which works electronically to control the butterfly in the throttle body, holding this open to varying degrees ensures that the forces of deceleration offered by this engine are accurately controlled
The full colour TFT dash (thanks to mobile phone technology) clearly shows RPM, gear indication, temperature and ride modes. This can be switched to view computer trip data such as consumption etc and also acts as the display for all ride mode adjustments and lap timer viewing etc.
For track/race use just RPM can be selected.
The display has day and night background colour modes that can be left as automatic or can be overridden manually.
