New 1299 Panigale S Anniversario unveiled at World Ducati Week

Ducati has celebrated its 90th anniversary in true style, with the unveiling of its new Ducati 1299 Panigale S Anniversario - a special edition superbike designed to commemorate 90 years of Ducati motorcycles.

Revealed at World Ducati Week, the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario will be limited to a production run of 500 motorcycles which will feature a limited edition paint job, gold-colored metal pieces, and a whole host of technical upgrades, including the arrival of the EVO version of the Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC) systems.

Ducati have gone on record to state that these electronic rider aids tap into the Panigale's Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), in turn seeing improvement across the bike's functionality.

Another new feature included on the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario is slide control, which will kick in when selecting a DTC level of one, and will allow riders to modulate the rear-wheel slide with the throttle and allow for the red wheel to drift around while leaned over through a turn.

Aesthetically speaking, and aside from the limited edition paint job mentioned previously, gold-colored forged aluminum Marchesini wheels, gold-colored titanium Akrapovic exhaust, and limited edition laser-etched engraving will come as standard, providing the new 1299 Panigale S Anniversario with a touch of class.

The 1299 Panigale S Anniversario will be available from Ducati dealerships from the second half of July and will cost £23,995.
