Audi is a Technological Giant; there are no doubts about it. Owners of some of the most advanced Automobile brands like Lamborghini, and Ducati and then being a part the huge Empire that is, the Volkswagen group, Audi has access to incredible technologies for the present as well as the future.

Just yesterday, we saw Ducati talking about their all new ‘DVT’ technology and now we are hearing that Ducati is bringing another piece of Audi tech that will find its way onto a Ducati motorcycle, as the 1299 will receive a “Tiptronic-like” gearbox that allows for touch-button up shifts and downshifts.

It is not clear if the Ducati 1299 superbike will have a dual-clutch gearbox with its new shifting abilities, but riders will be able to rapidly click through the gears without using the clutch. Our sources make the system sounds like an enhanced version of Ducati’s Quick Shift system (DQS), which already allows for clutchless up-shifts. Adding now clutchless downshifts to the list of features coming to Ducati’s superbike line, the Italian company is trying very hard for this mid-model update to be more than just that.

We know already that the 1299 will feature an extra 100cc on the base and “S” models, while the “R” model will remain at 1,198cc for World Superbike regulations. The bump in displacement is a new philosophy for Ducati, which is using the weight savings in its v-twin design to bust category trends with larger displacement machines — a move first seen with the Ducati 899 Panigale middleweight.
