I Ride: Ducati 959 Panigale

I am racing this coming year and wanted a bike that will carry me beyond my novice year. I started looking into what it would cost to make the 959 competitive in the 1000cc or unlimited class, it was 12k+. I said hell I can get a R for same price as the cost of my bike and the cost to mod it and I will still be at a disadvantage.



I sure will let you know how this boss runs at the track, I am guessing nothing short of smiles for miles


Who cares what people say! If you know how to ride and able to ride that beast DO IT! Lol bad ass! Yee thatís one Iíd reasons I want to get a bigger Panigale I love my 959 but extra power would be great!

If I could have all three I would.
I was very comfortable on the 959 and could ring its neck out of corners.
I have the feeling that I will not have the same comfort feeling on the R.

You got to be a little more precise with throttle my friend let me ride heís 14 Panigale R on some curvy roads and I ended drifting the bike and the 2nd curve obviously spirited riding, but we all used to bikes so nothing happen, got a mad slide and got it to stick again, this was one Supercorsas SC2 haha so Panigale torque is no joke.
