I Ride: 2012 Ducati 1199 S
Post First Ride: Ducati 1199 Panigale S Full Review and Ride Report

Ben Cope from Visordown got to ride the all new Ducati 1199 for 4 sessions at the Yas Marina F1 circuit in Abu Dhabi and says "this is a proper riders bike" that "flicks from left to right with the eagerness of an R6".

Here is the Article Link:

And here is his onboard video lap:


Enjoy!

duc - I think Ben was referring to David's brother, Carlos. Don't you hate it when you publicly confuse siblings?

I Ride: '12 1199 Panigale ABS
Well it's official. My Termi headers are getting ceramic coated black. That stainless looks terrible after a few heat cycles.

Other than that, I'm like a kid on Christmas Eve...even though Christmas won't be here for a couple more months...after reading the reviews.

Hi Daz,

No not yet, I want to ride it first and may hold out for the "R" version.

Do you still have the Tricolore on order?


Cheers,

Harry.

Troy in action - you can see the aero kit better in this one. I'm guessing no ABS ;-)
