Beautiful and Powerful 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale
The 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale is an extraordinary motorcycle both visually and tech-wise, representing a tuned down version of the Ducati 1199 model. This stunning two-wheeler is admittedly less powerful than its bigger and meaner brother, but it is also much cheaper, appealing to those who want to enjoy the thrill of riding a good Ducati without having to empty their pockets in the process.
The 899 is equipped with a lighter version of the Superquado engine found on the 1199, which still manages to dish out very impressive performance figures nonetheless, 73 lb-ft of torque and 148 horsepower to be precise. Furthermore, this high-end bike also boasts a comprehensive list of technological goodies, including the Ducati Quick Shift system, traction control, triple stage ABS for smooth and efficient stopping power as well as electronic throttle control.
The 2014 Ducati 899 Panigale will be available for purchase at select Ducati retailers at the beginning of 2014 for the price of $14,995.
