ducati marketing

its logical that Hodgos will try and put Ducati on top, the real test u can read in Motociclismo it, where they tested all 4 of them and on 2 different tracks, all bikes where dynoed ducati 1199r only had 173, aprilia 166, s1000hp 182 the same also Agusta. they had 2 pro riders and both tracks came Aprilia on top with best track time in both, seconed was Hp4, then Duc way slower and MV in fourth.

U can go to and use google chrome to translate it u also have all videos there. the same test was made in German and Spanish site both came Aprilia on top, ducati wasnt even close.

So i Guess Mr.H and Ducati payed allot for this crapy test. So Sold yourself like always Mcn.

ultimate superbike
It's quite a suprise that any test where the ex Ducati WSB Champion Neil Hodgson is involved for some strange reason the Ducati seems to do very well in. Not that theres any bias of course?

Hodgson says "The HP4 is by far the nicest bike here."  Doesn't sound that biased to me.

dry weight

What?!? 18kg more than the Panigale?

Not at all!

It's 169kg dry weight, in comparison to the 165kg of the the panigale R.

let me guess

let me take a wild guess, next week, H will say Ducati is the winner.

I like Ducatis and I specially like the Panigale, but this would be the first time Panigale will come up ahead at any superbike comparo.  the very first time.  hmmmmm. 

sorry, there is no journalistic credential to this story series.

If you want an unbiased and very extensive and fully detailed review of the 1199 Panigale S click here.  This review is only one of its kind and has the most complete overview of all the features on the Pani S.
