Ducati 959 Panigale Corse – The perfect balance perfected

The Ducati 959 Panigale Corse is not only just a new paint scheme, it is a dramatically enhanced new version of the already exceptional Ducati 959 Panigale.

The very striking Corse livery not only makes the bike look fast but the top spec Ohlins forks and shock absorber and steering damper enhance the chassis performance to a level that it will negotiate the tightest curves fast too.

Moving technology forward the Ducati 959 Panigale's chassis was modified to improve the handling of the bike considerably over its 899 pre-decessor. This technology came straight from the successes enjoyed on the track.

Bodywork features of the Ducati 959 Panigale Corse are shared more closely with it's big brother the 1299. A larger frontal area to the fairing ensures that the bike and rider cut through the air with less effort and more rider protection. 

The Ducati 959 Corse uses a Monocoque frame and 150HP Superquadro engine, both designed with one thing in mind ‘to save weight’ thus giving unprecedented agility both on road and track. 

Unlike any mid sized Ducati before, the 959 Panigale Corse has a whole host of electronic rider aids as standard, only before found on the very highest spec superbikes.

These include Ducati quick shifter (DQS), Engine Brake Control (EBC), Ducati 8 level traction control (DTC), the very latest Bosch 9MP ABS braking system and Full ride by wire throttle (Rbw) with three riding modes -1 Race 2 Sport and 3 Wet.

Superquadro Engine

Ducati’s latest power plant, the 959 Superquadro, represents another major step forward in twin-cylinder design and technology, generating superb Ducati performance with super smooth power delivery. The new 955cc Superquadro engine delivers 150HP @ 10,500rpm, +9 Hp more than 899 Panigale and a broader torque curve with the peak of 105.6Nm @ 9,000 rpm. This further adds to the 959 ’s ability to dominate the road as well as the track. Not only have Ducati managed to make the all new 959 Panigale a very powerful machine but the Desmodromic, 90° L-twin inherits the 1299’s structural design to enable full integration with the monocoque chassis while boasting an ownership-friendly 24,000km (15,000 miles) between major services.
