    2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale "Superquadro" Engine Details


    With so much hype surrounding Ducati’s 1199 Panigale – the successor to the 1198 superbike – we found it worthy to conjure up what we think the bike will be like in our 2012 Ducati 1199 Panigale Preview. We based much of that article around various sources, some of which are more reliable than others. And while much of what’s written about the 1199 and its architecture are simply educated speculations, yesterday Ducati released official information about the new game-changing powerplant, dubbed the “Superquadro” in anticipation of the model’s unveiling at EICMA next month.

    It’s interesting to note that design sketches for the new machine began in 2008, the same year the much-heralded 1098R, which is essentially the same motorcycle Carlos Checa rode to this year’s World Superbike title, was released. It would seem logical then that the 1199 was at least a napkin sketch at the time of the 1098R’s unveiling. Having been at the world introduction of the 1098R, I can personally account for the buzz regarding it and its racing potential. To think that Ducati wasted no time drawing up its successor is a glimpse into the life cycles of design and how far forward manufacturers are thinking.

    Im still waiting to see how "game-changing" this powerplant is, not that im not convinced already or that what I seen on paper isn't enough, it's just that seeing it in action VS other bikes with powerful powerplants and the 1198.
