You can probably guess if you read my 1299 review, that I didn’t need much convincing to ask the fine fellows at Ducati Manchester if they had any 1299 Panigales available before Christmas. There was one.
2016 Ducati 1299 Panigale
One Monday afternoon, about lunchtime, I was handed the keys to a 2016 Ducati 1299 Panigale base with 7 miles on it. I didn’t realise it then, but the next few weeks and 570 miles would blow apart everything i thought i knew about big capacity sportsbikes and modern motorcycles in general.
