    Ducati 1199 Panigale S

    Not since the original 1985 GSX-R750 have we seen a machine so completely reject conventional sportbike wisdom and blaze off in a new direction. Ducati has done away with the frame entirely, replacing it with a monocoque structure attached directly to the V-twin engine. Inside those structural cases is the most radical production motorcycle engine ever built. The biggest bore, biggest valves and highest engine speed of any sporting V-twin produces a claimed 195 horsepower. A suite of sophisticated technology—including electronically adjustable suspension, plus traction control, race ABS and more—makes the Panigale S more adaptable than any bike before. And it flat-out works, brilliantly. This is what a revolutionary sportbike looks like.

    n a segment accustomed to incremental advances—a little more power here, a few less pounds there—the Panigale is a remarkable leap forward. Ducati’s outgoing 1198 was already the lightest superbike. The Panigale is said to weigh 22 lbs. less. The 1198’s 170-horsepower Testastretta engine was singularly strong. The Panigale’s Superquadro twin piles another 25 horsepower on top of that. Ducati believes it has created a new benchmark superbike. After riding it, we’re ready to agree.
    Complete redesign, just about everything is new. The dashboard isn't digital - it's more like an iPhone screen.

    The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No.” ― Alan Moore

    So you're literally just riding the engine with wheels bolted to it. Nuts!

    That's GORGEOUS. Something about the ...fairings? (are they still fairings when theyre structural like that?) bugs me a bit, I think the front center sticks out a hair too much (aesthetically, I'm sure there's a good reason for it) but who gives a fuck, still looks über sexy.

    And what's better than an 1199? An 1199 with a hot Italian on it.
