2015 Ducati 1299 Panigale First Ride Review + Video

Despite its plus-size motor, the 1299 is as flickable as any literbike. The full LED headlighting seen in this photo reveals this as the S model, which includes niceties like forged aluminum wheels, a carbon front fender and handlebar switches that allow on-the-fly rider-aid adjustments. It also includes Öhlins Smart Suspension, which adjusts damping levels automatically to riding conditions or can be set to remain static. It retails in America for $24,995. The base 1299 doesn’t include the items listed above and uses a fully adjustable Marzocchi/Sachs suspension. It lists at just $19,295.
