2014 Ducati 899 Panigale Revealed
Traditionally, Ducati saves its big reveals for the EICMA Show in November in its native Italy, but with the company now under the helm of Audi, we will have to start looking to Germany for the major announcements. Case in point is the 2013 Frankfurt Motor Show where today Ducati officially pulled the covers off its new 899 Panigale, revealing a new “Supermid” version of the 1199 Panigale using the same monocoque frame concept and Superquadro 90-degree V-Twin engine design.
The engine is new powerplant developed from the 1199′s engine but displacing 898cc with 100 mm bore and a 57.2 mm stroke. Ducati claims an output of 148 hp at 10,750 rpm and 73 ft-lb. of torque at 9000 rpm. These represent an improvement on the outgoing 848EVO’s claimed output of 140 hp and 72.3 ft-lb. At the same time, Ducati claims a wet weight of 425.5 pounds (with a full 4.5-gallon tank), making the 899 Panigale about 1.5 pounds lighter than the 848EVO.
