General Information on the 2015-2016 Ducati 1299 Panigale

The new Panigale 1299 sets fresh standards in the superbike fraternity, with a claimed 205 hp at 10,500 rpm and a terrific 106.7 pound-feet of torque at 8,750 rpm. Simply put, there is nothing like that on two wheels, with the possible exception of the new supercharged special from Japan. Valve size is the same as that used in the 1199: 46.8mm titanium intakes, 38.2mm steel exhausts. By keeping the same valve and port size of the 1199, Ducati engineers have created a more flexible and torquey power­plant. The higher speed of the intake charge helps disprove the old notion that extremely oversquare engines must have poor torque curves.
