The original Ducati weighed 218 kg; this was brought down to 175 kg. A lighter flywheel
provides enhanced engine braking and a faster-running engine. A quick shifter was added to
make maximum use of the new levels of engine performance.
The OEM cylinder heads were flowed, faster 999S camshafts were fitted and a new 55mm
exhaust pipe was made. To take full advantage of the new configuration, the ECU was
reprogrammed on the Dyno. The result: 154bhp as opposed to 124bhp in the standard
version. Even more important for the handling characteristics: the original torque of 102 Nm
rose to 122 Nm. Consequently, acceleration is phenomenal from the lowest revs, and the
rider has to lean forward to avoid making an instant wheelie. The Panigale front fork gives
the bike the same specifications as the WSBK racers, therefore handling is excellent.
