1199 Panigale S on board video at the Abu Dhabi Yas Marina Circuit. Beautiful bike, beautiful race track.
The first few laps are warm up and sight seeing. Skip to 4 min mark if the action is a bit slow for you.

I believe they have sacrificed some bottom end torque to produce more top end power. Hope it still feels like a Ducati Superbike to ride in its power delivery!

The non factory 1198 are slaughtering the WSB so these are going to create even more havoc when they start racing them!

195bhp on a 165kg bike is pretty impressive though!

I'm very fond of Ducati's too, but I'm going to get a Triumph street triple later in the year as it seems to rule the roost in telepathic road manners. i have Italian componentry roosting all over my bicycle however..Campagnolo.. mmmm

Ducati may be pulling out of MotoGP! General manager Claudio Domenicali announced that the company doesn’t need racing to continue its success story.... I guess it will depend on what the new owner Audi thinks of the expense of racing at the MotoGP level.

Wow, I guess someone should have told Rossi before he signed with them a couple of years ago. What a waste of 2 years.

Rossi and Ducati never clicked from the get go. He is being outpaced even by the satellite Ducati riders.

I still think he has a lot to offer a factory team ... you think he'd take an offer or retire? I'd hate to see him go out this way.

We'll see what Audi has to say about Ducati and MotoGP racing... I think "The Doctor" still has it in him, he just needs to find a better fit in terms of a team and a bike to race.
