The Italian motorcycle maker Ducati came up with the new Panigale 959 last year at the EICMA 2015 and also the brand discontinued the Panigale 899 in India a long time back indicating the launch of the new Panigale 959. At the India Bike Week 2016, Ducati India launched the Panigale 959 at the price of Rs. 14.04 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) while the deliveries of the same will commence from July this year.
Last week only we told you that the company will showcase the new Panigale 959 but we were not sure if the model will be the US version or the European version that comes with side mounted dual exhaust assembly. And the good news is that we will get the European version of the Paingale 959. The bike propels on a new 955cc, Superquadro V-Twin engine that generates an atrocious 157bhp of maximum power and 107Nm of peak torque that kicks in at 9,000 rpm.
Apart from the launch of the new Panigale 959, Ducati India also showcased their showstoppers including Hyperstrada, Scrambler, Multistrada and Diavel.
