09/21/2011 @ 3:29 am, by Jensen Beeler12 COMMENTS

True to his word, Troy Bayliss was right about Ducati teasing some new information on Wednesday. With its first official video of the 2012 Ducati Superbike 1199, we get a glimpse not only of the Italian company’s flagship motorcycle, but also its full-designation: the Ducati Superbike 1199 Panigale — taking an obvious cue from the Borgo Panigale manufacturing district where Ducati Motor Holdings is located in Bologna, Italy. While we don’t get any super clear shots of the 2012┬áDucati Superbike 1199 Panigale, we’re sure the video is ruining the trousers for Ducatisti all-over the globe. Check it out after the jump.

    23 seconds in…I see a horizontally mounted rear shock

    Good name, I’d say.

    Better than “Extreme” or whatever. This fits their naming convention.

    Pretty cool, does what it needs to. Crazy they (all manufacturers, I think) weren’t doing things like this just 5 short years ago around the time the 1098 was released.

    My apetite has been whet!

    The suspense is killin’ me!!! Here’s hoping it’ll be an iconic game-changing instant classic like the 916. Ohlins FGR-style gas charged fork? Wonder if that will make it onto the production model. If it does, it’ll be one spendy moto. +1 for Troy coming back, but I think he wants to stay married.

    Bayless has been a test rider for Ducati since he retired. He is in no way, shape, or form “back”. But it is good to see him out there putting in laps and smiling through his helmet!

    ahhhh, its like escaping reality…bike porn. You sexy fing you….

    SLAP! Now wake up, if you dont have the coin you may be interested in a 2012 model coming from the other manufacturers boasting technology circa 2008 – 2009.

    its like waking up with the same woman everday, Ducati is just your porn….get some!

  • what a great clip
    – such passion / such dedication
    i think this bike is worth the wait – worth the R & D this year at the Moto GP as well as worth every dollar .. I am saving and waiting and i don’t usually get a rush from ‘sports bikes’ – but this one
    .. I want in my stable ..
