Author: Motogenn  Date Posted:28 August 2022 

The Ducati 899 Panigale is a 898 cc sports bike, released in 2013 as a replacement for the 848.


This bike is famously named after the small manufacturing town of Borgo Panigale in Italy. 

It has a 148-horsepower (110 kW) version of the engine in the previously released 1199 Panigale.

The claimed dry weight is 169 kilograms.

The 899 has a conventional two-sided swingarm, which differes to the 1199, which has a single-sided swingarm.

The 899 topped sales charts for all motorcycles in the UK in December 2013, at a price five times higher than the number two seller, the Honda CBF125...
