Absolute sport attitude


The 205 hp Ducati Superquadro 1285 cc engine is integrated smoothly into the monocoque frame, providing the perfect platform from which to unleash its incredible 197power. The twin-cylinder Superquadro also features Engine Brake Control (EBC), which optimises vehicle stability under extreme turn-in conditions. This ensures the very highest level of riding precision, offering the thrills that only a Ducati Superbike can provide.


The exclusive 1299 Panigale S Anniversario is also equipped with advanced ‘EVO’ versions of Ducati Traction Control (DTC) and Ducati Wheelie Control (DWC); these maximise performance and active safety on the Bologna-built Superbike. The DTC EVO is based on an all-new algorithm that makes intervention faster and more precise and also interfaces with the Bosch Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU), constantly measuring the lean angle and using it to gauge optimal control of rear wheelspin.

Optimized geometry

The 1299 Panigale S Anniversario benefits from the experience of Ducati Corse, adopting a new geometry which uses a 24° steering head angle along with a 4mm lower swingarm pivot point. This enhances the bike’s agility, and provides excellent rear traction in a wide variety of riding conditions.

Lithium-ion battery

Lithium-ion is the most advanced commercially available battery technology, and allows the unit to be extremely lightweight and compact – saving a full 2 kilograms of weight versus a conventional lead-acid battery. It’s one of the crucial details that allows the 1299 Panigale S Anniversario to be even lighter than the already market-leading S version.
