We love rumors here at Twowheels and this latest comes from Italy and regards Ducati and will certainly grab some attention.
After the debut of the exciting and revolutionary Panigale 1199 and enthusiasts just itching to get their hands on it, now there’s talk that the Bologna manufacturer will be releasing a middle-class supersport version of the Panigale next November at the EICMA show.
Apparently the 799 as it’s unofficially called, will be derived from the new 1199 and replace the current 749 or even the 848, and supposedly have a 750cc Superquadro engine and boast some of the innovations of its bigger and extremely more powerful sister. The only rumors we have so far is it that it should deliver 145hp and weight in at less than 160kg.
True or not, a more affordable Panigale 799 could help actually re-launch the languishing supersport market.
