Ducati 1199 Panigale vs rivals: At a glance

It’s a sad fact for speed freaks that superbike sales have slipped in recent years, while things like naked and adventure bikes are on the up.

So can one of the most exciting, talked-about motorcycles this year – the Ducati Panigale – reignite our passion for all things very fast?

Ducati certainly hope so and have thrown the kitchen sink at the new flagship superbike.

It has the most powerful engine ever fitted to a Ducati road bike, it’s as light as a feather and packed with electronics and pre-set riding modes, which at a touch of a button give you differing levels of throttle response, power delivery, traction control, ABS, engine braking and with this S model, suspension settings, too.

To find out how it compares against its main rivals, we brought them all together for a shoot-out. Unfortunately, due to reasons beyond our control, the new Yamaha R1 and Suzuki GSX-R1000 didn`t make it to Sicily.
