2014 Ducati Superbike 899 Panigale on Totalmotorcycle.com

The new 899 Panigale – Supermid perfection...

The introduction of the highly-anticipated Ducati 899 Panigale provides a new way to access the exclusive world of Ducati Superbikes with a “Supermid” version designed to provide the thrill of the new generation flagship model with the refined character of an everyday streetbike.

The brand new Superquadro engine features a revised bore and stroke for a broad power delivery, producing 148hp (109kW) with a torque of 73lb-ft (10.1kgm). The super-smooth power unit continues to be a fully stressed member of the innovative Panigale monocoque construction, achieving both an outstanding power-to-weight ratio and ride-enhancing agility with a dry weight of 169kg (372.5lb). An 1199 silhouette underlines the family DNA, while the Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) and the fully integrated Riding Mode technologies of Ride-by-Wire, triple stage ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC) continue the benchmark ingenuity introduced with the award-winning Panigale.

Ducati’s constant pursuit of perfection now offers all-round performance for connoisseurs with an authentic and stylish way to enter the world of high performance. The 899 Panigale is available in traditional Ducati red with black wheels or a stunning arctic white silk with red wheels.

The best of both worlds

I went with: Awesome

373lbs, 148hp, Ducati red and swoopy styling... that's pretty well puts it in my awesome book. This bike would sure move on a WOT. But not sure about the riding position or the seat padding. Most likely a real track bike vs a road bike, but if you can afford it, then why not? Even if it just sits (for shame) in your living room.

It looks cool. Not sure if I would want to do a SS1000 on it, though. But if someone gave it to me and said "Ride it on weekends whenever you feel like it." I'd say yes.

Then I'd remember I have 4 kids and no time on weekends to ride it anyway.

Hey guys, good to be back.

Life is treating me - Eh, not so bad. Mentally dying a bit every day since I have ridden my bike in probably over a year. A little bit due to gaining more than a little bit of weight and not wanting to admit it and buy new riding pants... and jacket - and a little bit due to being in a different house with a hard to access garage and it is a PITA to use the bike. Now I have a bit of fear of getting back on the bike since I haven't ridden in so long. But hey, it is winter and I'm fat and cushy now and wouldn't want to get too cold riding out in the winter.

Other than that, ok. Kids are growing like bananas and all four are in full day school (twins are 4.5 years old now and in full day pre-K). Got to looking at a used motorbike site and drooling over bikes I don't have. Then had the realization that I don't ride the one I have now, got depressed and headed over here. ;) Not that Total Motorcycle is depressing, but it is a good place to chat about bikes.

How are you guys?

Same old grind here. Work, work and more work. Still riding the Buell or the Connie. I bought a second house last year as a garage, it's right across the street, and cheaper then building one. I started going to a gym 3 times a week, turning the fat into muscle.

NOTES: We have a tie for 1st place on our cool wall thanks to Ducati's new 899 Panigale with a vote of 83.3%! (Tied with 2013 Moto Guzzi Griso 1200 8V SE). Will the Ducati and Moto Guzzi last as our #1 bikes of 2013 or will a bike between now and December 31st become the new King of Cool?

Next bike is now up for voting on, have fun!!

My commute has gotten worse. I'm doing the job search thing. I want something close so I can get a second bike, if I manage to have the time to ride the first one!

Yep, still ticking. I gained a bunch of weight and got an award - high blood pressure. Sometime when I actually get time to ride we could get together! Traffic has gotten so bad that I stopped riding the bike to work. I guess the economy has recovered - at least mostly!

That's why I try to get up and out early, be at my office by 7:30 am. That means I leave by 6:30-6:45, it's 31 miles. If I get out early enough, it's not too crazy and reasonable for the bike. Wait until 8am and traffic is very nutz.
