Description:A mould-breaking motorcycle. Apart from the colour and the noise it makes, the Panigale S has nothing in common with Ducati superbikes of old. The chassis is 'frameless', there's a new-generation 'superquadro' engine and it comes with the latest electronic rider aids, which work well. Producing a claimed 195bhp and weighing 188kg, wet, it has a fearsome power-to-weight ratio, but is remarkably easy to ride. Gone is the out-going 1198's excess of almost uncontrollable torque and in is a smooth power curve and a searing top end. Like Ducatis of old its super-stable in fast corners, but now it steers as fast as a Japanese superbike. It's a very clever motorcycle and very, very good.
