2015 Ducati Superbike 1199 Panigale R Review

2015 Ducati Superbike 1199 Panigale R on Totalmotorcycle.com

The pursuit of perfection…

The “R” version of Ducati’s Superbikes has always been the flagship model, the machine taken by Ducati Corse and enhanced with high performance preparation for homologation into the highly competitive environment of World Superbike.

The 1199 Panigale R model takes everything that the ‘S’ model is equipped with and applies a list of enhancements to the technical specification that enable the model to achieve even greater targets. Titanium con-rods, which save an overall 0.63 kg (1.38 lb), a 0.7 kg (1.54 lb) lighter crankshaft flywheel and DLCcoated rocker-arms enhance the Superquadro engine’s crank acceleration and allow it to rev 500rpm higher to a 12000rpm limit, an incredible engineering achievement for 112mm pistons.

The famous “R” race kit components consist of high-penetration racing screen, fairing mirror caps in machined alloy and a full Termignoni exhaust system with dedicated ECU mapping (for track use only). The system provides an impressive power increase of 3% at the top of the rev-range and 15% in the mid-range, further amplified by the R’s acceleration-enhancing 15-41 final drive ratio.

The race-oriented ‘R’ model also features a 4-point adjustable swingarm pivot, designed to enable riders a personalised and precise set-up of varying levels of pro or anti-squat to optimise traction on corner exit. The settings are dialled-in using two user-friendly eccentric adjusters that offer pivot positions at +2 mm higher, – 2 mm lower and -4 mm lower than the standard position, each positively and accurately locked and located.

The clearly marked, easy-to-use system provides optimum adjustability for competition use. Additional enhancements to the machine include lightweight carbon fibre rear hugger, rear suspension guard, heels guards, ignition switch surround and top fairing inner panels and carbon fibre protectors for the single-sided swingarm and clutch cover. These lightweight chassis and engine components enable the ‘R’ version a dry weight of just 165 kg (363.7lb), even with an ABS braking system fitted as standard equipment. This top-of-the-range model is also equipped with the GPS-enhanced Ducati Data Acquisition system, for automatic lap times and circuit map-linked data.

The 1199 Panigale R is dressed in Ducati red with defining white race features, sporting a mix of red and brushed aluminium on the fuel tank with lightweight forged wheels by Marchesini in black.

 

Unbelievable performance and technological excellence proclaim this the new king of the Superbike family. Born of the world of competitive racing, the 1199 Panigale R is an exclusive and treasured interpretation of our passion for the racetrack: titanium piston rods, carbon fibre bodywork, Ducati Performance racing exhaust and livery inspired by Ducati Corse. Perfection was never so close.

 

 

2015 Ducati Superbike 1199 Panigale R Totalmotorcycle.com Key Features

DUCATI SUPERBIKE
Last year Ducati Superbike family saw the introduction of the 899 Panigale, a “Supermid” version of the award-winning 1199 Panigale, intended to provide a way to access the exclusive world of Ducati high performance Superbikes. Designed to combine thrilling performance with the refined character of an everyday streetbike, the 899 model stands proudly alongside the 1199 Panigale, 1199 Panigale S and 1199

Panigale R.

Underlining Ducati’s focus on the innovative Panigale concept and its continuous development, all Ducati Superbike models feature the exciting combination of Superquadro engines and monocoque chassis construction to achieve outstanding power-to-weight ratios with ride-enhancing agility. Benchmark electronics for enhanced performance safety include 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) and, on the 1199 Panigale S and R models, Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES).

The 899 Panigale is available in Ducati red with black wheels or a sporty arctic white silk with red wheels.

The 1199 Panigale is available exclusively in Ducati red, while the 1199 Panigale S offers the additional stunning option of dark stealth. The 1199 Panigale “R” continues in Ducati red with defining white race features, sporting a mix of red and brushed aluminium on the fuel tank.

The Panigale concept

Ducati’s latest generation Superbike goes beyond the barriers of motorcycle design and engineering to set the most extreme benchmark ever and the direction for future sport bikes. Developed and designed to raise the performance bar to its highest, the 899 and 1199 Panigale use innovative Ducati Corse-derived solutions to make World Championship level technology available to everyone.

The most high tech, most powerful twin-cylinder production engines on the planet become an integral part of an innovative monocoque chassis that combine to deliver astonishing power-to-weight and torque-to-weight ratios.

With the click of a button, Ducati’s Riding Mode concept delivers performance with enhanced rider confidence by combining up to seven class-leading technologies. The latest-generation sports ABS system, Ducati Traction Control (DTC), the 1199’s Ducati Electronic Suspension (DES), Ducati Quick-Shift (DQS), Ducati’s race-derived Engine Brake Control (EBC) and Ride-by-Wire (RbW) are now all programmed into seamless, electronic rider assistance. Even the 1199’s full colour Thin Film Transistor (TFT) display changes to suit the rider’s environment.

State-of-the-art from the ground-up and melding latest technologies with the latest family features, the Panigale is totally “Ducati” in every respect. Its no-compromise approach to sport design and stylish attention to incredibly fine detail presents authentic Italian performance at its purest.

Ducati have combined the innovative “monocoque” frame solution with the extraordinary “Superquadro” L-twin engine design and race-derived electronics to produce the champion of all Superbikes. Bred for the track and trained for the road, the 899 and 1199 Panigale are true revolutions of the species destined to influence the entire sportsbike environment.

Unmistakably Ducati

Every detail of the Panigale pays tribute to the rich heritage of racing on which Ducati is built. Components that are not only functionally efficient, but also minimalist, essential and beautifully engineered into pieces of automotive art.

Climb aboard the Panigale and take hold of the bars and the feeling of pure racing is everywhere. The finely formed top-clamp with weight-saving hollows and recesses immediately communicates Italian engineering at its very best. Radial brake and clutch pumps, Ducati’s precise switchgear and full Ride-by-Wire twistgrip give a race-driven sense of minimalism further enhanced with the monocoque-integral steering head flowing into the front sub-frame and minimalist instrumentation.

The twin headlamps, with LED positioning lights, are integrated with the frontal intake ducts, while the twin rear lights are moulded perfectly around the recessed seat air ducts and illuminate with an attractive lightguide surround effect, enhanced with LED brake lights. While the 899 and 1199 Panigale illuminate with halogen main lights, the 1199 Panigale S and R introduced motorcycling’s first ever full LED positioning and main light solutions. Front LED indicators are integrated into the mirror bodies and rear indicators, which are also LED*, are styled with clear lenses. All Superbike models have an additional hazard light function.

The majority of the frontal air ducts feed the main airbox, while a small splitter diverts air also into the fairing bodywork to ensure efficient cooling for the onboard electronics. The carefully executed shape at the rear of the fairing enables a highly efficient exit from the radiator area, protecting the Superquadro’s power output and further reducing aerodynamic resistance. The sleek shape of the seat and tail-piece is accentuated by the under-engine location of the exhaust system, further enhancing the aggressive stance of a true Ducati Superbike.


 

2015 Ducati Superbike 1199 Panigale R Totalmotorcycle.com Features and Benefits

Distinctively Ducati


The beauty of speed translated into design. The pure racing spirit is instantly channelled into the rider just by gripping the 1199 Panigale’s handlebar. The front headlamp disappears into the air scoops to give a look of no holds-barred competition. While the 1199 Panigale features LEDs for position lights and lamps for the headlights, the S version and R version have full LED lighting, a totally new concept for motorcycles. The elegant forms of the saddle and the tail are heightened by the position of the exhaust and by the full LED tail light. Perspectives and lines are designed to attain aesthetic perfection; every one of its components is a true achievement in the integration of engineering and design. Breathtaking, trademark Ducati design.
The 1199 Panigale is a bike that conveys power, elegance and agility.

Checkmate


The new Superquadro 195 HP engine is exquisitely incorporated into the monocoque chassis. Engineering solutions marked by an innovation in details have been implemented to take the dry weight down to an incredible 164 kg. Ducati styling inside and out is further enhanced by the most exclusive components. Cutting-edge electronics unleash power and refine riding precision, and with a power-to-weight ratio of 1.19 HP/kg, there’s nothing like it in the world. 1199 Panigale: 5 moves to become the new and extreme standard of reference in sport bikes.

Extreme Standard of Reference


The 1199 Panigale sets a new and extreme standard of reference in the world of superport bikes. The project that brought the 1199 Panigale into being based itself on two seemingly impossible objectives, which have been brilliantly achieved: a 10 kg reduction in weight and a 25 HP increase in power. Its arrival is a milestone in the glorious history of the Ducati Superbike.

Objective:The Track


Aggressive design enhanced by full LED headlamps, front mudguard in carbon fibre, machined Marchesini rims, electronic control suspensions and adjustable Öhlins steering damper. With this racing outfit, the 1199 Panigale S is ready to enter the track and win the race against the clock.

Titanium conrods


Titanium rods which are lighter and more resistant than those in steel are an evident racing component with clear advantages in terms of performance: their light weight together with greater mechanical robustness reduces rotating mass and also the mass in alternating motion, thus enabling high engine speeds with greater responsiveness to be achieved. The titanium rods on the 1199 Panigale R put the Superquadro in the best light and enable the rev limiter to be moved from the 11,500 rpm of the 1199 Panigale S to 12,000 rpm, thus offering thrilling race-level performance.

Architecture


The engine has been designed as the structural element of the frame. As such, its architecture has been completely reviewed to ensure the best design in terms of structure, weight distribution and robustness.
The cylinders, at a 90° angle of each other, have been rolled back an additional 6° on the crankcase to produce a 21° angle between the front cylinder and the horizontal plane. This has allowed the engine to go forward by 32 mm, as a result improving the distribution of weights between the front and rear end and achieving the perfect position of the fastening points of the cylinder heads into the monocoque chassis of the 1199 Panigale.

Essential Desmo


The need to control the enlarged valves with the extremely precise Desmodromic system prompted engineers to replace the original belt transmission, mounted on the first Ducati Pantah in 1979, with a configuration mixing both chain and gears. As a result, the chain timing allows an efficient transmission of the motion between crankshaft and camshaft transmission and thanks to the automatic tensioning adjustment, ensures constant reliability and a reduction in routine maintenance costs.

Flawless Performance


The Superquadro is the most powerful twin-cylinder engine on the planet, and as evidence of the Ducati 1199 Panigale’s flawless performance, it has been given the task of equipping the new bike. In the innovative Superquadro engine, the power has been increased up to 195 HP@10,750 rpm, an absolute reference for a series-produced twin-cylinder, while torque has been increased to 13.5 kgm@9,000 rpm. And thanks to the Riding Mode options, the rider is able to modulate power delivery based on riding style and road conditions.

Extreme Bore/Stroke Ratio


The new bore/stroke ratio of 1.84:1 (112 mm bore/60.8 mm stroke) has superbly increased the revolutions thanks to the ultra-short stroke of the crankshaft, while the larger surface of the piston has led to an increase in valve diameter. Compared to the 1198 Testastretta Evoluzione engine, the intake valves have gone from 43.5 to 46.8 mm and exhaust valves from 34.5 to 38.2 mm.

Intake


The increased amount of air and fuel the engine can mix due to the larger diameter of intake valves is guaranteed by the new oval-sectioned throttle bodies, which compared to a 63.9 equivalent diameter as on the 1198 Testastretta Evoluzione has been increased to an incredible 67.5 mm. The throttle bodies are controlled by a full Ride-by-Wire system, each separate from the other and are fitted with 2 injectors each: the first is set below the throttle and feeds the engine in conditions of low load use, whereas the second is fitted above the throttle, is activated when the engine is given the command to unleash its maximum performance.

Magnesium Covers


The clutch covers, the cylinder head covers and the oil pan are all produced in a magnesium alloy casting to ensure the lowest weight of the engine while guaranteeing the desired mechanical strength.

Lubrication


The journals of the main bearings are lubricated by pressurised oil admitted through ducts inside the engine block. This serves to assure the efficient lubrication of the new crankshaft, followed by a rapid recovery of the oil thanks to a new Ducati component, a lobe pump that places the connecting rod compartment under vacuum, similar to the engines used for the MotoGP races. The pump is driven by gears built in a special high-strength techno-polymer and maintains the crankcase area below the pistons in controlled conditions of constant vacuum, thereby reducing the resistance during the downward travel and assuring an efficient recovery of lubricating oil in any condition of engine use.

Superquadro Breathing


After achieving the goal of improving engine “breathing”, the Superquadro engineers turned their attention to the next challenge: to attain an engine calibration that optimally combines the high-performance delivery with regular operation achieved by reducing the cyclic dispersion of combustion. To obtain this, Ducati introduced a system of secondary air that completes oxidisation of the unburnt hydrocarbons, effectively reducing the levels of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide (CO). The system is controlled by an electronic valve commanded by the engine control unit and is activated according to the specific condition of engine operation. This valve makes it possible to let in the exhaust pipe of each cylinder head (in a position slightly downstream of the exhaust valve) a flow of clean air originating directly from the airbox. A second reed valve located in the engine head makes this flow unidirectional. The controlled inlet of oxygen makes it possible to complete the combustion of outgoing hot gases, eliminating eventual fractions of unburnt fuel which in certain conditions can reach the exhaust.

Crankcase


The crankcases, produced through a vacuum casting technology called Vacural®, ensure a maximum reduction in weight, a uniform wall thickness and superior mechanical strength, and are designed in such a way to incorporate the water jacket around the cylinder barrels. The Superquadro engine is fitted with aluminum wet barrels coated in Nicasil inserted into the holes of the engine block’s housing during the initial stages of assembly. This design allows the head to be fastened directly onto the crankcase, combining the needs for rigidity of the engine’s structure with a significant advantage in terms of compactness. Due to their thin walls, the barrels also achieve an effective thermal exchange with the coolant running along the walls. In addition to the barrels, the crankcase stands out for the use of main bearing shells, previously utilised only in the Ducati Desmosedici RR engine. The elimination of the ball bearings has made it possible to increase the diameter of the journals for the main bearings of the crankshaft, allowing an increase in the section of the engine block in the area surrounding the main bearing journals so as to maximise the rigidity and the mechanical strength and adapt it to the extreme power of the Superquadro.

Decompressor


At the extremity of the exhaust camshaft of each cylinder head is a centrifugal decompressor. On start-up, the device allows the profile of the cam opening lobe to be modified, resulting in a slight lift of the valve that discharges part of the mix contained in the combustion chamber during the engine’s compression phase. This effect makes it possible to reduce the resistance to the motion of the piston in the compression phase. Once the engine is started, the increase in rpms and the relative centrifugal force modify the configuration of the device, cancelling the effect of the valve lift and bringing the engine back to normal operating conditions. This ingenious device facilitates the starting of the Superquadro engine without having to use a more powerful battery and a large starting motor, in turn making it possible to reduce the overall weight of the vehicle by 3.3 kg. The system further underlines the synergistic strength achieved by engineers and designers in the intense effort to reduce the bike’s weight.

Transmission


Ducati engineers took their design freedom to the limit by increasing the distance between centres of the six-speed gearbox shafts and allowing the use of wheels with an increased diameter and superior strength for the transmission of power delivered. The oil bath clutch is a new feature for a Ducati Superbike at the top of the range. The design of the clutch, very similar to the Multistrada and Diavel models, provides for a progressive system which allows the load to be increased on plates without penalising the effort required required by the rider to pull the lever and disengage the clutch. This optimally satisfies both the need of high torque transmission and an optimum comfort for the rider. In sport riding conditions with abrupt shifting down and heavy exhaust braking, the same mechanism reduces the pressure on clutch plates, allowing them to slip as in a racing system, contrasting with the loss of stability of the rear end during aggressive shifting down and offering the supplementary advantage of an excellent modulability during hard braking into corners.

Height of the pivot of the adjustable swingarm


Built for racing, the 1199 Panigale R gives riders a further degree of freedom in the choice of the optimal set-up of the bike, offering the possibility of moving the pivot of the swingarm, in order to increase or decrease the chain pull angle. By moving the pivot of the swingarm up, the chain pull angle increases, thus extending the single rear shock absorber. In this way the rear dive effect while accelerating is reduced, and consequently the unabsorbed torque is returned to provide greater drive. Should there be poor grip or rain, the 1199 Panigale R allows the swingarm to be adjusted to use lower chain pull angles, which make the application of the torque more linear and so provide greater stability. The new 1199 Panigale R offers four different levels for the swingarm pivot: starting from level 0, which corresponds to the chain pull angle of the standard 1199 Panigale, it is possible to increase the height of the swingarm pivot by 2 mm or decrease it by 2 or 4 mm.

Monocoque Technology


The 1199 Panigale’s chassis marks an enormous innovation: different components have been integrated to give shape to a single compact and lightweight element that enhances the rider’s posture to perfect the riding position. The monocoque structure in cast aluminium for increased strength uses the Superquadro engine as a structural element and aids in reducing the bike’s total weight by 5 kg. The monocoque frame is fixed directly to the cylinder head, and at front are two aluminium bushings inserted with the steering tube bearings. In addition to performing the traditional function of frame, the monocoque also acts as an air-box and significantly contributes to lowering the overall weight of the motorcycle. Housed inside, besides the air filter, are the throttle bodies and fuel circuit complete with injectors, and the bottom of the aluminium tank (lighter by 1.9% compared to the 1198) is used as a cover for the airbox.

Ergonomics


New ergonomic guidelines assure a perfect integration between rider and the motorcycle. The saddle-handlebar height has been lowered by 30 mm and the handlebar has been raised by 10 mm and broadened by 32 mm.

Exhaust System


The layout of the exhaust manifolds is 2 into 1 into 2 with twin tailpipe under the sump. The design of the exhaust assembly is a work of highly refined engineering: the ends have a complex exterior shape due to the size restrictions necessitated by the “deep sump” of the engine (on the interior) and the leaning angle (on the exterior). The primary manifolds have a Ø 55 mm diameter, the central manifolds a Ø 57mm; they are built in stainless steel and have a thickness of 0.8 mm, with only the two short exits from the cylinder heads having a larger thickness (1.0 mm) to better resist vibrations. Even the silencers are in stainless steel with exception of the outer sleeve (or outer jackets) in aluminium alloy with a 2 mm thickness (result of a process of pre-deep drawing, rolling and longitudinal welding). The reflection silencers have three chambers; in this application the chamber layout is especially complex with respect to the traditional design (used for the 1198) because the exhaust gas enters from the rear (with respect to the direction of travel) inside the silencer and exits again from the outside rear. From a construction perspective, this also implied a complex design, and at several stations of deep-drawing of the aesthetic rear endcap, the catalytic converters are positioned at the inlet of the silencers and have dimensions of Ø 80mm x 74.5 mm

Weight Distribution


The 1199 Panigale features a distribution of weights equivalent to 52% at the front and 48% at the rear without the rider. The ratio then becomes an optimal 50:50 when the rider is on the seat to guarantee absolute stability and handling. To achieve this optimal configuration, solutions were implemented to allow a concentration of the weights at the front: the engine has come forward 32 mm compared to the 1198, the exhaust system is placed under the engine, the rider’s position is advanced by 30 mm. Added to all this is the new single-sided swingarm in 100% cast aluminium secured directly to the rear of the engine, longer than the 1198 by 39 mm.

Full TFT Instrument Panel


The instrument panel on the 1199 Panigale takes the revolutionary TFT panel designed for the Diavel to another, even superior, level by applying the most highly advanced technology in the field of data visualisation. The colour display’s configuration is variable and automatically adapts to the variations in environmental light and to the selected Riding Mode. In the “Road” and “Wet” Riding Modes, speed takes centre stage and is displayed in large numbers in the middle of the display, whereas the two boxes containing “supplementary information” underneath provide data on total mileage and engine coolant temperature. In the “Race” Riding Mode, the display layout is automatically reconfigured, shifting the display of the vehicle’s speed in the lower information box at left and making room for the last lap time, centrally displayed in large numbers

Braking System


As an exclusive feature, the1199 Panigale is equipped with the brand new M50 Monoblock callipers. Sporting an extremely compact design that has led to a weight reduction of 7% with respect to the previous system and machined out of a single alloy block, the M50 callipers offer higher rigidity and deformation resistance during the hardest braking.

Engine Brake Control (EBC)


The engine braking control system (EBC) works in combination with the slipper clutch to prevent and manage any blockage of the rear wheel when aggressively shifting down. If the system detects any slipping of the wheel, it sends a signal to the control device of the engine, which then slightly increases the rpms until the rear wheel resumes a speed conforming to that of the vehicle.

Riding Mode


The Riding Modes are programmed to instantly vary the engine’s Power Mode and suspension setup, in addition to the ABS, DTC and EBC levels. The available modes, Race, Sport and Wet, are the result of the combination of highly advanced dedicated technologies. The rider atop the 1199 Panigale can choose among three different pre-set configurations (Riding Modes) that best adapt to the riding style or conditions of the trajectory. The Riding Modes make it possible to instantly modify the power delivered by the engine (Power Mode), the activation levels of the ABS (when present), DTC, DQS and EBC, the graphics on the instrument panel and, on the “S and R” version, the suspensions setup (DES).
The available configurations for the 1199 Panigale include Race, Sport and Wet, with the rider left to customise the pre-configured settings of each Riding Mode as he pleases.

Ducati Quick Shift (DQS)


The Ducati Quick Shift (DQS) is the electronic system that manages the gearbox and is used in competitions. It allows the gear to be engaged on acceleration without the use of the clutch and while maintaining the throttle open. The feature enables the rider to gain precious fractions of seconds, helping to considerably reduce lap times.

Ducati Traction Control (DTC)


The Ducati Traction Control (DTC) monitors control of the slipping of the rear tyre and operates on the basis of eight different levels of interaction, each of which has been programmed to respond to a different tolerance to rear slipping. Each Riding Mode is assigned a pre-set level of activation.
Level 8 indicates an activation of the system at the detection of the slightest slipping, while Level 1, reserved for very expert riders, has a higher tolerance and thus a less invasive intervention of the system.

Tyres


As an exclusive, all 1199 Panigale motorcycles sport new Pirelli Diablo Supercorsa SP tyres, the road version of the tyre used in the Superstock 1000 World Championship: 120/70 ZR17 at front and 200/55 x ZR17 at rear, the widest ever mounted on a Ducati Superbike designed for the road. Designed to maintain precise trajectories on straight stretches and around curves, the rear 200/55 x ZR17 tyre maximises the area of contact and the leaning speed by combining the 200 mm width with a higher profile. The tyres have structures and compounds deriving directly from the Pirelli experience in the Superbike World Championship, and feature casings specially studied to guarantee rigidity in extreme braking and shoulders that maximise the area of contact. In addition, the double compound obtained by using new polymers facilitates the rapid heating of the tyres and assures a constant grip.

Components in carbon


The 1199 Panigale R is enhanced with quality components in carbon fiber which help race performance and allow a reduction in the dry weight of 1.5 kg compared to the S Tricolore version, thus emphasising its racing character: swingarm protection, heel guards, cam chain covers, ignition switch cover, rear shock absorber cover, front and rear mudguards, and clutch cover protection.

Set-up of the 1199 Panigale R


The 1199 Panigale R is the certified base model for the motorbike which will take part in the SBK World Championship in 2013. With the same technical features as the S Tricolore version, such as ABS and DDA+ as standard, with a 1.5 kg lower dry weight thanks to the numerous carbon fibre components with which the version is endowed, the 1199 Panigale R guarantees racing performance and genuine emotions. The sporting nature of the model is emphasised by the Ducati Corse-inspired livery, and by the accompanying accessories for racetrack use: the Termignoni exhaust, the aerodynamic screen and the rear-view mirror taps in aluminium .
