The 2018 Ducati 959 Panigale Corse maintenance schedule and service intervals — sourced from the owner’s manual.
Regular maintenance for the 2018 Ducati 959 Panigale Corse
This is maintenance that you can do yourself (though the manual says you need a dealer to do it).
Using the motorcycle under extreme conditions, such as very damp and muddy roads or dusty and dry environment, could cause above-average wear of components like the dry system, the brakes or the air filter. If the air filter is dirty, the engine could get damaged. Therefore, this might translate in required service or replacement of the wear parts earlier than specified in the scheduled maintenance chart.
Every 1000 km/600 miles miles OR 6 months (whichever comes earlier, perform the following maintenance:
|Check engine oil level|
|Check brake and clutch fluid level|
|Check tyre pressure and wear|
|Check the drive chain tension and lubrication. If necessary, contact your dealer
to replace components.
|Check brake pads. If necessary, contact your dealer to replace components.|

General Information on the 2018 Ducati 959 Panigale Corse
Ducati 959 Panigale Corse is a US-spec version of the Panigale V-twin is an evolution of the 57.2mm-stroke 889 Panigale, with the same 100mm bore but a 60.8mm stroke, identical to that of the 1199/1299, resulting in 955cc . Ducati upgraded the bike to Corse spec with top-quality components from Akrapovic, Brembo, Öhlins, and Pirelli.
Öhlins is used across the board: a NIX30 43mm inverted fork, a TTX36 shock, and an adjustable steering damper. Front brakes are from the standard model, with 320mm Brembo discs and four-piston M4.32 calipers. Akrapovic produces the Ti exhaust, which trims a claimed 5.5 pounds from the overall weight of the bike, and a lithium-ion battery replaces the lead-acid unit. Pirelli Diablo Rosso Corsa tires are standard in 120/70-17 front and 180/60-17 rear sizes.
