Designed to “provide the thrill of the new generation flagship model with the refined character of an everyday streetbike,” the 899 is the best of both worlds: keeping the goodies and heritage of the 1199 – including Ducati Quick Shift (DQS), Ride-by-Wire technology, triple stage ABS, Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Engine Brake Control (EBC) – but with a brand new Superquadro engine and a lighter-weight body. The 899 Panigale will be available in late October in iconic Ducati red with black wheels or Arctic White with red wheels, both with 148-hp and 73 ft-lb of torque beginning at $14,995. But, we all know the reason you’re here is to hear its engine so go ahead and click the video after the jump.
