What kind of speed limits are we talking about? The 1199 runs nice and cool when it's moving. But it hates traffic.

You should get a practical bike like a Suzuki DRZ400s for most of your slow commuting duties. Then save your Ducati for special occasions.

If you can only have 1 bike, don't get a Ducati 1199. Ducati's were my dream since the 916. I have finally got around to my first. I'm not an expert rider. Can't stunt or go very fast. But I'm good at not wrecking and don't flinch when something goes wrong. A couple years dirt biking. A year on a DRZ400s. Then i bought the 1199S. With the ABS and TC controls set to higher levels, the bike is perfectly safe as long as you're smart.

The ducati Hypermotard is also very very fun. I have both 1199 and hypermotard. The motard is more fun without having to go as fast. and its sooo nimble. Very good for congested streets/traffic.

Hey im back, after 3 week in private big bike school, i learn how to use panigale 1299 and its so great and have monster power, my first cornering i nearly crash to a car, and i try to use in traffic jam too, its make me frustated too my b*lls feel like cooked, but i still can handle it, ive made my mind im gonna buy panigale, and ducati customer service call me and say ducati panigale can handle maximum 320 kg total weight in seat so i think it works fine with passenger, thanks guys for the info positive and negative, now i know why u guys say use a slower bike first then move to panigale

Only sissies use wheelie control so go for the 1199. You can get one way cheaper now too since the 1299 is out. The 1199 Panigale is a real pussy in its first three gears. Whack the throttle open and rule the traffic I say. .
