Fancy a great way to start your summer? Check out this Ducati 959 Panigale, which is our bike of the day.
“A top condition standard bike. One owner rider from new. Last serviced at 690 miles and will receive an Oil/Filter service at point of sale.”
“Ducati’s 959 Panigale was designed to extend the 899 Panigale’s lifespan and meet tough Euro 4 noise and emissions laws. Based on the Euro 3 compliant 899 Superquadro lump, the ‘stroked’ 955cc engine is more powerful, but Ducati has also breathed on the chassis, tweaked the styling and swallowed the bitter pill of fitting those controversial shotgun-style exhausts. It’s 7kg heavier, too. But apart from the extra weight and slightly feeble brakes, all these changes add up to a truly sensational sports bike – one of the best in any class. The 959 Panigale hasn’t moved the game on and that might sound like a backwards step, but what Ducati has actually done is saved the ‘baby’ Panigale from extinction.”
