Top 10: Highest-Performing Bikes in 2015


by Pascal Bastien ,

No. 4
2015 Ducati 1299 Panigale
: The heart of the new 1299 Panigale is the 1,285cc Superquadro twin-cylinder engine that generates 205 hp at 10,500 rpm. Along with a revised architecture, it will allow riders to push the limits of performance on the track. The steering angle (rake) went from 24.5 to 24 degrees for greater agility, while the 4mm lower swingarm pivot point will improve stability at full throttle.

The 2015 Ducati 1299 Panigale features a more advanced version of the Ducati Safety Pack which includes exclusive Bosch 9.1 MP ABS brakes that remain active in corners, as well as the Ducati Quick Shift assistant that now manages shifting of the gearbox in both up and down directions.

The 1199 Panigale R retains the 1,198cc engine; however, race-derived components raise output to the same 205 hp. Ducati engineers will tell you that the 1,198cc Superquadro, which is directly derived from the WSBK Superstock 1000 class, is the closest thing available to a dedicated race engine.
