My brand new toy : 2017 Panigale 1299S

Hi guys,

last year, on september, i bought my first ducati : a second hand 1098. All started from this point : i discovered a pleasure of ride i have never felt before. But unfortunately after one track session, i saw that this 10 years old "lady" didn't like the track at all, or maybe with very high maintenance levels.

October : a month after i bought it, i decided to ask my dealership to take it back for a brand new Panigale. He did make me an offer i couldn't refuse, and after a loooooong time spent on internet and on this forum, hesitating between the base and S, i decided to spend the extra cash and get the S, and i definitely can say that i would never go back onto my choice on this point.

January 2017 : my Panigale is ready to get picked up, there we go on the road to the dealership, cold but sunny day, i don't really realize i will be the owner of a brand new Ducati. Signing some papers, quick briefing on the bike's DTC and let's go.

My first impressions on the bike were kinda weird, it was like i have ridden it for years, it is SO easy to drive that my ex 1098 looked like a track bike next to it. It feels easy, very safe, and definitely more versatile. I have heard people talking about how bad the Panigale 1299 was at low RPM, to me it is everything but bad at low RPM, my 1098 had a lightweight flywheel, and i definitely can tell you it was hell compared to this one !

February 2017 : 700 kilometers done at the moment, i have my first maintenance on Friday the 17th, and that's also where the first mods are going to get installed :

-SC Project S1 exhaust
-Marchesini M10RS Kompe Aluminium (Gold)
-Cycles Led Fender eliminator
-Comfort Seat

At the moment my 1299S has quite a lot of Ducati Performance parts, some are coming later, here are some pics of it :









More updates to come when the accessories will be ON, i plan to use the bike on track after the "brand new effect" will disappear, again thanks for checking my bike !

Best regards from France, Phil.

Thanks a lot Piri for your kind comment, i'm trying to get rid of the break in period before the warm temperatures come back, this way i won't overheat the engine and will be fully able to enjoy the bike for the spring / summer

Thanks again !

Phil,
I think the gold wheels will look fantastic. I am looking to put some Gold Magnesium Marchesini on my 1199. It will be the next big mod.

Good shots! Wishing you the best with your 1299S. What was the 1098 doing or not doing on the track that you didn't specifically like?
Thanks from Phil

Thank you very much. Well the 1098 brakes suffered a lot, after only 15 minutes of track i could feel a wobble in the front brake lever, i think the discs overheated. It didn't disappear. The engine started having some troubles also, starting on "one cylinder", or not starting at all sometimes.

Thanks again !
