Ducati launched new 959 Panigale; priced at Rs 14.37 lakh


New Delhi: Ducati unveiled its new superbike Ducati 959 Panigale in India. The 959 Panigale is available in traditional Ducati red with black wheels at Rs 14.37 lakh (ex -showroom New Delhi). 

Announcing the start of sales, Ravi Avalur, Managing Director Ducati India said: “Since we first unveiled the model, our dealers have received an overwhelming interest from motorcyclists all over the country. The 959 Panigale is the embodiment of Ducati’s premium sportbike culture and is now on display at our dealerships in Delhi and Gurgaon.”

The motorcycle is powered by a new 955cc, L-twin Superquadro motor that meets Euro 4 emissions standard, which Ducati claims has resulted in an increase in power and torque. The middle-weight superbike shares its styling with the more powerful 1299 Panigale, while its engine is designed for a more accessible, everyday riding experience that is equally thrilling on the race track, the company claims.

The 959 Panigale is available in the traditional Ducati red with black wheels. The company currently has dealerships in Bengaluru, Delhi, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Pune and plans to further expand its network by opening two new dealerships by the end of 2016.
