Ducati’s New Superbike Gets a Name: 1199 Panigale

posted by on 21 September 2011 in Motorcycle News

Ducati has always held to a pretty tight naming structure, especially for its sport bikes, opting simply to name each one after its engine displacement. But Ducati seems to be pretty proud of its latest superbike, slated to come out next year, because this time around, it’s named the 1199 Panigale after its home turf.

The only press release available currently merely goes into the name of the bike, on top of including a single teaser image and an accompanying video. But we’ve heard from multiple sources that the bike is something extremely special, and will be tough to compete with. We’ll have to wait until this year’s EICMA International Motorcycle Show in NOvember to find out, but until then, enjoy the video below.
