The 959 Panigale Corse is the superlative sports version of the legendary Italian twin cylinder. Thanks to suspensions by Öhlins, type-approved Ducati Performance silencers in titanium by Akrapovič, a lithium-ion battery and a dedicated colour scheme inspired by the colours of the MotoGP, the 959 Panigale Corse is ready to race.
The 955 cm3 Superquadro engine is Euro 4 type-approved and has a maximum power of 150 hp at 10,500 rpm. The maximum torque is 102 Nm at 9,000 rpm. Such characteristics enable high performance on the track and enjoyable on-road riding, without having to compromise on long maintenance intervals. The valve clearance control is in fact every 24,000 km.
The chassis of the 959 Panigale Corse is based on a compact monocoque structure, in die-cast aluminium for added resistance with the Superquadro engine incorporated as a structural element. Attached directly to the cylinder heads, it houses two aluminium bushes to the front which in turn house the steering head bearings. In addition to working as a frame, the monocoque also acts as an air-box. It contains, in fact, the air filter as well as the throttle bodies and the fuel circuit, complete with injectors and it’s sealed off by the bottom of the aluminium fuel tank.
