2015 Ducati 1299 Panigale First Ride Review + Video

Alessandro Valia (left) says he circulated Mugello on a stock 1299 with race-compound tires at a time of 1:55.3, which is less than 8 seconds slower than the lap record set on a million-dollar MotoGP bike by world champ Marc Marquez. On the right is Claudio Domenicali, Ducati’s CEO. It’s a fair bet to say he rides faster than any CEO of a major corporation.
