Updated: 20 November 2014

Ducati has finally started building the hotly-anticipated and all-new 1199 Panigale superbike at the Bologna factory this week.

The Panigale is the all-new 200bhp 1200cc V-twin superbike the firm hopes will revolutionise the class when it’s launched in two weeks’ time in Dubai.

MCN will be one of the first publications in the world to ride the bike in early February and will publish the first online and print reviews of the new bike.

This latest news means the bike is in full production as the Italian firm attempts to meet a massive number of orders from around the world for the bike which costs between £15,124 and £23,624 in the UK.

British dealers have already taken more than 300 orders for the bike with waiting time for the bike expected to mean the bike will sell out for 2012.

You can read all about how a Panigale is built in the February 8 issue of MCN as we have been granted full access to the production lines. A video will also be available that day.
