Our friends at ZigWheels.com has found out that the iconic Italian motorcycle manufacturer Ducati has stopping taking bookings for Panigale range here in India. We assume it is because of the fact that the Italian manufacturer will soon be unveiling nine of its new models (at the EICMA show in Milan, Italy) to take on its present range of motorcycles.
A bigger Panigale, we mean the Panigale 959 was spotted getting recently which will take place of the current 899 model. The 959 is basically the bigger version of the 899 with several visuals and mechanical updates.
Starting from the mechanicals, the 959 gets around 57cc bump in its displacement which will certainly boost its performance figures from the current 150bhp to around 160bhp may be. But the basically the upgrade from 899 to 959 has been done to make Panigale to be compatible with the 2016 Euro 4 norms. Cosmetically the 959 has been through several design updates as well, at the front 959 will be having a redesigned front cowl as the air-scoops being bigger in size and design being more inspired from the bigger 1199 Panigale. Currently the 899 Panigale was priced at INR 13.39 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) we expect the new 959 will be priced slightly higher at 14.5 to 15 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Delhi).
