Ducati India launched the special edition 959 Panigale Corse in India. However, the special edition motorcycle is costlier by Rs 67,000 than the standard model. The unique special Corse livery gets the inspiration from Ducati’s MotoGP bike, the Desmosedici GP 18.



Ducati 959 Panigale Corse Features:

Speaking about the special edition Ducati 959 Panigale Corse, Ducati India - Managing Director, Sergi Canovas said, "The Panigale has always been the definite Ducati Superbike that allows biking enthusiasts to have an unparalleled experience on a race track. The 959 Panigale embodies absolute excellence through the advanced electronics package that inspires confidence and allows riders to explore the limit.  In this special Corse livery, the 959 looks much more special and unique as the paint scheme is inspired by the colors of our MotoGP bike, the Desmosedici GP 18."

However, besides the paint scheme, there's no change in the mechanicals of the Ducati 959 Panigale Corse. In Contrast with the international-spec model, the India-bound 959 Panigale Corse does not feature the top-end performance parts. Thus, it does NOT include the Ohlins suspensions, titanium dual-exhaust from Akrapovic, Pirelli slicks etc. The company might have done this to keep the price of the bike lower.

Ducati 959 Panigale Corse Engine & Power:

Furthermore, powering the 959 Panigale Corse is the same motor that also powers the standard model. This ‘Superquadro’ 955cc L-Twin engine delivers 150PS of maximum power and 107Nm of peak torque. Besides, the bike gets lots of electronic components. So, it includes the dual-channel Bosch ABS, Ducati Traction Control, Engine Brake Control, and ride-by-wire technology. The 959 Panigale Corse also features three riding modes - Race, Sport, and Wet.

The booking for the motorcycle is open across all the company outlets in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Kochi, Kolkata and Chennai.
