Ducati 1199 Panigale Tricolore first ride

If you’re fortunate enough to be able to stump up the £23,495 for the Tricolore version of the Ducati 1199 Panigale, you’re in for a treat. Not only do you get this sexy colour scheme included in the price, racing ABS and the latest-generation ‘Ducati Data Analyser’ (DDA+) datalogger, you get a pair of titanium Termignoni slip-on cans, which boosts power...

Racing Budget

Don’t assume that Ducati has a lesser racing budget than the larger manufacturers – after all, they take cancer stick blood money.

Long Run?

Wonder if the Panigale (and the BMW S1000RR for that matter) would meet Honda's durability standards? There is a price to paid for extra power - of course, most of these Ducati’s will not get ridden enough for it to matter.

Journalists...

Journalists do not have to pay for test bikes, insurance, maintenance, and repairs, so their viewpoint is different from a bloke who earns his/her living. Of course, if you inherited money or got a cushy job through nepotism, then costs do not matter much either. For the rest of us, the Japanese bikes have equal real world performance at much lower cost and hassle.

And no doubt, there is if not racism, at least favoritism towards European products over Japanese (even if the “European” bikes are mostly sourced from parts made in SE Asia).

Ducati can get away with having a lower budget than the competition because the rules favour their bikes. Ducati fanboys who doubt this need to remember that Ducati openly threatened to withdraw from WSBK if they didn't get the 1200 twins rule.

Panigale et al

Oh dear Piglet, with ref. to Superbike racing, it would appear that you have little or no knowlege regarding engine configueration in relation to capacity/power output. Even the school dunce knows that a 1 ltr. V twin cannot make the same power as a 1 ltr. multi. This is why V twins are allowed a larger engine capacity to be able to compete with said multis. Even so, they still make less power, and generally lose out on the  fast circuits but have a marginal advantage on "slower" twisty ones. As for threating to pull out of WSB if they were not allowed a larger capacity, it makes for commercial nonsense to race in a series where you are at a huge dissadvantage because of the power differential. Simples, init !!!!!

this is not a rich man's bike...

Why do people still think that even bikes like the Ducati Pannini are only for the super rich? £24k eh? For a bike that'll eat a typical Ferrari for breakfast? Bargain!

Or look it at the other way. What new car can you get for £24k? A Golf GTI Diesel. Woah. Let me calm down a minute there. The though of all that thrilling VW Golf experience... oh wait, what am I saying?! And that's not even the most expensive Golf!

Now, if I had some lovely Passat, or maybe a new 5 series things would be different...

I'd flog it, and buy a Ducati Pannini and a used Focus for £2000, and have some fun.

 

As it is I'm an apprentice on £10k a year, so I'll have to wait a bit before I can afford either a Gold or a Pannini, but lets guess what I'll be getting...

Gavin,

More to the point that this type of Ducati isn't generally the kind of bike one would be riding around on every day. Where as, a Golf GTI Diesel is the the kind of thing one would be seen driving every day. 

It's better to think of the Duc like a Ferrari as opposed to a V W.  If the Panigale had the same esteem as a Golf, it would be about 10 grand and I certainly wouldn't want one.
