The Italian bike manufacturer Ducati launches its 959 Panigale Corse in India at price of Rs. 15.20/- lacs
Ducati India launches the special edition of 959 Panigale in India. The Corse version is priced Rs. 67,000/- premium to the standard Ducati Panigale 959. The 959 Panigale Corse is inspired by the Corse Ducati MotoGP colours. However Ducati hasn’t launched the flagship model of the 959 Corsa in India, which gets Ohlins suspension, lithium battery, steering damper and Akrapovic race exhaust. We assume that the company didn’t bring its flagship model because of the cost sensitive market of India.
The bike is powered by a 959cc L-twin motor that produces 150 horses of peak power and 102 Newtons of peak torque at 9000 RPM. The engine comes mated to a six speed gearbox with Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) technology. Just like all other Ducati Corse bikes this one is also equipped with the latest gadgets including Ducati Traction Control (DTC), Engine Brake Control (EBC) and Ducati Safety Pack (DSP). In the Indian bike market 959 Panigale Corse competes with the iconic Japanese kid Ninja ZX10R, Yamaha R1, Honda CBR1000RR and many others.
