VIDEO: 2015 Ducati 1299 Panigale

At EICMA 2014, Bologna unveiled its latest superbike, the 205-hp 1299 Panigale. Here’s a closer look.

Without doubt, one of the brightest stars at the EICMA motorcycle show in Milan this year was the new Ducati 1299 Panigale. This superb superbike, whose Superquadro V-twin now has a huge 116mm bore (that's more than 4.5 inches), puts out a claimed 205 horsepower at 10,500 rpm. In this video, you'll get a close look at the new 1299 Panigale, which is available as a standard 1299 Panigale (are any Panigales standard?) and a 1299 Panigale S that boasts top-tier Öhlins suspension and full-LED headlights. We apologize in advance for the leggy Italian model on the bike; she simply wouldn't hop off from the 1299 now matter how much Spenser, our videographer, pleaded. Not!
