I got to ride the new 1299 Panigale S and here is my review for the street

Hey guys,
So I got the chance to ride the new 1299 Panigale S at Ducati Austin and all I can say is wow.

Here is the YouTube video, it's a little long winded but I do managed to get stung by a wasp like 8 times too.


I specifically wanted to see if you can commute on this bike without it being a complete nightmare and I'm happy to say you definitely can.

I know what's next on my list!

Long but good review - I think you nailed it when you said it's fun to ride something not everyone has and may not be the most practical, but puts a big smile on your face every time you get on it

Addicted to fast toys huh? You're in good company here.

Absolutely I've got a Hypermotard now and will be adding this to my stable in July!

Interesting and well informed review from a real rider (not paid to say it's awesome or a track rider).
Get it into race mode and utilise the DQS as I noticed you used the clutch changing gears. I use it on the road all the time and it is awesome.

Cheers Carl

You don't need race mode for the DQS, although you obviously can ride it in race mode too

My concern for the street is that the rake is now a little too steep for my taste. I wonder about swapping out steering heads with an 1199 to go back to a "more relaxed" turn in.

I have a hyper 14sp. Do you ever notice an inconsistent clutch. Gets really grabby and causes you to leave a light like a noob..?? I do every once in a while in 350 miles. Can't predict when it will do it but I don't like it. I read online it's fairly common but fixed in the 15s with the new monster clutch. Wondering if you've experienced any funkiness... Thanks.

And I hate you for making me want a 1299 more now.

Thanks for the review. These little tidbits are helping me pass the time until my bike gets here.

Which camera and mount are you using? Do you have an in helmet mic or is the camera mic picking up your voice that well from outside?
