It is noteworthy that the Ducati 1199 Panigale was introduced to the European press over the weekend, and the first reports are very positive. Here is a link to an excellent report by Ben Cope of Visor Down. Follow that link and you will see a video of Mr. Cope lapping Yas Marina in Abu Dhabi during the press intro, exhibiting great difficulty keeping the front wheel on the ground. We provided all of the details of the lightest, most powerful Ducati superbike ever in an earlier article.
Below you will also see a video of Troy Bayliss lapping the same circuit. We may have our own report from a European correspondent (frankly, we are not entirely sure of that at this point), but we wanted to give you these links, nonetheless.
