First pictures of Ducati 1199 Panigale naked

These are the first official images of the new Ducati 1199 Panigale without bodywork. The images show off the cast aluminium airbox frame and highlight just how compact the 1198cc machine is. The 195bhp Panigale takes superbikes to a new level of sophistication with an abundance of electronic aids, including ABS, traction control, customisable riding modes and electronic engine braking. The Ducati 1199...

Is it any wonder???

That all the major manufacturers are reluctant to introduce new Bikes when all they get is a good old "slagging off" on websites dedicated to "so called Bikers" Whats wrong with you lot ffs? More bitchin than a bunch of bitches with nothing better to do than Bitch............ Any of you actually own a bike??? if so please tell us ...so we can give our opinion! keep up the good work Ducati and MCN....... Snev 32 years riding and loving every moment.

boo hoo

Just because someone rides a bike, doesn't mean that they have to be impressed by every single bike that is produced.  I didn't realise that the purpose of the forum was to post only positive comments relating to articles and motorcycles.  I just feel so terrible for those poor motorcycle manufacturers now, what must they think of me.  I honestly don't think i'll be able to sleep with all the guilt.

I pitty you, seriously I really do. There are a small bunch of plastic bikers on here that just want to post negative crap about anything that is new just to get their 5 secs of fame. your reply to my post is typical. what exactly is so wrong with the panigale? please post your reply stating why you are so much better than the rest of us experienced bikers, and your present bike. I'm so interested to see why you are so much better than me.

I have actually stated that I thought it would be a good bike, but that my issue is that in the last 10-20 years, bike development has progressed to the extent that, what are now touted as massive changes don't equate to a great deal for anyone who isn't actually racing them.  My reply to your post was basically because I don't see why a person needs to be in awe of the panigale to be considered a real biker.  I can't imagine that there are many/any bikes out there that every single biker loves, please feel free to correct me.  To prove both of our points - I have an RC8.  I like it, many don't.  Its not the fastest, has little technology, reliability issues.  But i'm more than happy with that.  Now, whether you like it or not, i'm not going to try to correct your view or question your riding credibility in relation to that view, why would I?  So why do you?

the name is SNEV... over a 30 year period I have seen massive changes and would agree that not all were for the better but bugger me any new bike at the moment deserves a little bit of praise ..surely? yer BOO HOO comment dont really win you friends either.... KTM would still have made the RC8 regardless of the negative comments... thank god. I own a few bikes including an RSV1000r and NC30, L0 Busa CBR600, GT250 x7 and X1.Would love to own a Ducati, Moto Guzzi, KTM ect ect... Lets all hope they can keep going.

I do love all the features in MCN and its good to get an incite into the nuts and bolts of a bike etc but the Panigale does nothing for me at all. Personally I think its quite ugly (prefer the 888 or 916) and looks a right nightmare to service LOL. I'm not really into gadgets/rider aides etc at all, if you can ride an ill handling 80's superbike then you can ride anything LOL, but hey I'm not from the playstaion generation PMSL.

Apologies for the typo..  As I said, my boohoo comment wasn't about the bike, but was aimed at people presuming that somehow not liking a specific bike renders a person not a biker.  I like ducati (I had a nice go with a 916 sps yesterday), and the fact they do continue to buck the trend with their looks/engines/build type etc.  I just feel that the differences in actual performance between sportsbikes these days are getting so slight, that it's hard to get excited, and that joe-average will not really notice much difference between this 200bhp 200kg sportsbike or that one on the road.

I love this Bike

but there is no way i could justify $36500 for it. For me bikes are something you play with in the shed as much as you ride ,but how could you work on this unless you are an I T expert. When i got my SP2 it was a poor mans Ducati, now  with 54000 km on the clock it,s a wise man, s ducati. I recently had to get a fuel pump for a hypermotard. $1400 list price. Thank Christ for e bay $180 @ my door from US. How long will the electronic gizmos last on this and god help me should i ever need to replace anything. My riding partner rides a916 sps and she,s a mighty fine ride , even sounds like a real Duke.
