That side exhaust would look good if it was a single-sided swingarm.

The 959 gets several handy hand-me-downs from its 1299 brother, including its revised fairing, slightly taller windscreen and updated tailsection. It also receives the 1299’s clutch and its slipper function, but with lighter springs. A slipper clutch might seem superfluous with Ducati’s adjustable Engine Brake Control electronics, but, according to Paul Ventura, Marketing Product Manager, the market had specifically asked for one. The 1299 also donates its larger (60mm) header pipes and 4mm lower swingarm pivot, the latter which results in better traction out of corners and a wheelbase 5mm longer.

The EBC is no replacement for a good slipper clutch. I actually prefer to keep my EBC off so that I experience engine braking while still being able to maintain the stability and safety of having the slipper function.

It is probably in the top five of mods, whether it is a Yoyodyne, STM, or EVR, that 899 owners look into... particularly if they are track riders.

Others just swap out the OEM if they get the Ducabike cover because the dull grey stock clutch is just plain ugly.
