Ducati 1199 Panigale Horsepower Torque
Tuesday, May 8, 2012
Hey all, right now we’re amidst our Superbike Smackdown comparison test. We wanted to share the power figures acquired during dyno testing comparing the ’12 Ducati 1199 Panigale against last year’s 1198 Superbike. As you can see the new bike generates substantially more top end power and is the most powerful production V-Twin engine we've ever tested. But all that extra high rpm oomph’ comes at the cost of reduced bottom and mid-range performance. As noted in the 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale First Ride
, the new bike is a revver and requires a more traditional Inline-Four riding style as compared to its predecessor that performed best when short shifted.
