2003 World Superbike champion Neil Hodgson was at the Ducati 1199 Panigale launch in Abu Dhabi and was kind enough to let MCN bolt-on some onboard cameras during one of his sessions.
The Panigale is an all-new bike from Ducati, making a claimed 195bhp from the 'Superquadro' V-twin engine. The new bike features a wealth of electronic rider aids, including ABS, traction control, customisable riding modes and electronic engine braking.
You can read Hodgson's verdict on the Panigale, as well as a further six pages from MCN road tester Michael Neeves - who rode the bike at the launch - in this week's issue of MCN, out now.
