Sexxy bike, only $36,000 for the S series and $43,000 for the Tricolor. Why not buy 3?
That looks seriously good.
36k ride away for the S, 43 for the tricolour
Do you remember the good old days before the internet?
when arguments were only entered into by the physically or intellectually able.
the banter is pretty good here. drag race is at 9:15.
i am in love
carbon tri-colour design.... now to check ETA
In my opinion what makes the (majority) of Ducati's pretty is the lack of graphics and vinyls. Just a single colour and a trim colour normally. Keep your bike how it is dude - maybe a CF pan or something.
some very interesting photos have pop up on the 1199 for the Japanese Market
Japan finds the Ducati 1199 Panigale too loud, reconfigures exhaust and clutch cover | Ducati Blog
This time around, the superbike failed to comply with noise regulations of, well, just a country.
To comply with Japanese regulations, Ducati had to install a longer (and ghastlier) exhaust system. They had to do a Japanese-specific engine mapping system, plus they created a new and bigger plastic clutch cover that extends up to the rear cylinder.
The additional parts adds 4 kilos to the 164 kg base weight. The Panigale won’t go on sale in Japan till September 29, 2012, so I guess it really took a while for the Italians to sort this out right.
