DUCATI PANI­GALE 1299 UP­GRADE

Fast Bikes - - UPFRONT -

We all know that road bikes are get­ting more and more so­phis­ti­cated, and if you fancy tak­ing things up a step Ducati are of­fer­ing the new DTC EVO soft­ware for all 2015 and 2016 1299s.

It has the top notch World Su­per­bike de­rived pre­ci­sion you’ll find on the Su­per­leg­gera, which con­stantly eval­u­ates ev­ery­thing from lean an­gle to wheel speed in or­der to en­sure the per­fect amount of rear wheel spin; ul­ti­mately giv­ing you that edge on track. By work­ing off the throt­tle body valves and spark, the DTC EVO sys­tem gives more pre­ci­sion and con­sis­tency; es­pe­cially when you get chang­ing grip con­di­tions like with an old rear tyre or some dodgy weather.

Oh, and if you’re feel­ing re­ally fancy, it comes with a ‘spin on de­mand’ func­tion, which ac­tu­ally al­lows you to re­quest more throt­tle and let the bike spin, in case drift­ing is your thing or you just want to try and high side your pride and joy…

There’s no word on of­fi­cial price yet, but if you’re se­ri­ous about go­ing fast it will be a wor­thy in­vest­ment!
